Former Linspire Contest Entry - logo removed to make it more usable.
Mmm, yes. I like this out of all the other variations of this in your gallery. What program did you make it in?
Thanks - I made all of those in Paint Shop Pro. There are some cool gradient tool options that make it relatively easy to make the varying ring effect.
Ah, yes. Paint Shop Pro. It's definitely one of the underdogs; people say it sucks compared to Photoshop, but I deny that claim because I've never had a problem with it. I do all of my image editing in it, including all my prints (it's a script that makes every print consistent... saves me about 20 minutes of work each time)
I did shell out the hundreds of dollars for a real copy of Photoshop because I wanted access to a lot of its tools and such (and I was more used to the interface) but I typically recomment Paint Shop Pro to people who just want something to edit photos and scans and such. It's certainly powerful enough for most people's needs at a much more affordable price. It's nice to have both, too, since Paint Shop Pro does have a few nifty widgets that Photoshop lacks.
Of your collection of Linspire WP's, this is great and the one I'd put on my desktop.
