Good graphics package?


I am looking for a graphics package which I can make handouts for my class. I am no graphics artist so am staying away from photoshop or publisher. Anyone recommend a programme that doesn't have a steep learning curve? Many thanks

    Sorry Pete though I can understand that you’d avoid Photoshop due to it’s complexity, MS Publisher has to be the easiest package on earth to learn to use.

    It took me less than an hour to work out how to knock up leaflets, flyers, handouts etc. and I’m no graphic designer either.

    It’s almost identical to Word in it’s basic use and all the bells and whistles just come with a bit of time spent.

    The only graphics package I can think of that is simpler to use would MS Paint or Jasc’s excellent PaintShop Pro which comes in handy for editing images and more importantly doesn’t cost Photoshop money either.

    But if you’re looking to design handouts there’s no substitute for Publisher with Paintshop Pro in tandem.

    Speaking as a complete technophobe ( and I know the IT guys here will shriek at me saying this ) I use power point for all my Newsletters and flyers because I can ‘box’ everything in either text or picture frames!

    Many thanks for the advice team. Looks like publisher is the way to go. One graphics viewer which I would recommend to you to look at is irfanview avaliable from:

    All the best,
