    I can get EXCELLENT fonts with this program! You can adjust the bevel, depth, lighting, transparency, and so much more.

    What would you like to see? Something like this?

    I have over 4500 fonts on my machine right now. 500 are installed right now. If I had all of them installed, loading Photoshop would take hours, maybe even make my machine crap out. :p I like the fonts included in Corel Painter 8. Nice stuff there.

    One of the other cool things that PhotoImpact 7 provides is an Animated GIF 5 Program. THAT program allows one to save an animation as SWF file. That's how I made my own animated sig here. ;)

    I presently have 414 Fonts installed. I've had many, many more on previous systems and realized after a while that I just didn't need that many fonts! LOL

    Adobe's ImageReady lets you save as SWFs as well. I never really tried it though, so I have no idea of the quality.

    Well, I hate to divulge the truth of how I got PhotoImpact 7, but, if you have any computer shows around you ought to check them out if they have any software vendors. I've been tinkering with PI since an early version....3 or 4, I can't remember now. But, when I saw version 7 not long ago on the software table, brand new, for $14.99, I had to pick it up. :)

    I just use PSP8, never really tried any others. Not that I'm much of an artist....not anymore, not since I lost an eye in 1991. :( I used to do alot of abstract stuff all the time....before I got into PC's...mostly drawings and constructed artwork type of stuff. Losing the eye had a profound effect on my abilities to make things look like I wanted them to. It's kinda hard to explain really. I could never get the 3D'ish, trip-out effects right anymore.....so I kinda lost interest in trying. I even trashed all my works around '92-'93 and that's something I regret now....but I digress.

    I did finally get around to making my own sig and avatar a couple months ago, but it's all just copy and pasted images with some effects added using Amination Shop 3. :uhoh: The sig is small, I know. I did that to conform to multiple forums with varying size limits, and to make it easier on the peeps with 56k modems.

    Mostly, I just use the sig and/or avatar to find my post in a thread faster....Obviously, red, yellow and orange are my favorite color combos.

    I'm rambling on....need sleep.... :dead:
