Adobe do a relatively inexpensive version of Photoshop called Photoshop Elements (My CS5 cost £640). You should be able to find it on Ebay but do be aware of Chinese copies as some of them can contain hidden spyware. The first CS5 I bought was from a UK company (it said) but was shipped from China. My Kaspersky Internet Security immediately warned of hidden scripts so I checked with Adobe and discovered it was a pirate copy. I then bought direct from Adobe and Paypal refunded the monies I had paid to the seller.
Adobe do have an offer on 'Elements' at present with 30% off see www.adobe.com/PhotoshopElements This offer ends on Sunday 4th May. Oh, that goes to a different site, try this
(you will need to copy & paste the above [including the smilie] into your web browser bar as I note it doesn't auto-load on a click). JH
