    I believe you only need that. I bought my photoshop for like $20 and it probably doesn't have some stuff that the expensive ones have, but it works fine for me (i made my banner in my sig with it). As long as you're not looking to do anything really really complicated, it will work fine.

    Re: photoshop question

    Photoshop elements is not photoshop nor is it an addition to photoshop. They are both stand alone programs.
    Elements is a very low powered program aimed at the user that just wants to make simple modifications to home snapshots.
    Resizing, redeye removal, sharpening and so forth. It will not do what photoshop does, and Photoshop is easily $600 plus add on modules. Elements takes 5 minutes to learn and for photoshop you sign up for classes. If you are planning on making banners and such, elements will not be very helpful, as it just doesn't have many of the tools necessary to make decent output. Download a free software suite called "openoffice" from openoffice.org. It has a very powerful art program built in that you will find to be much more suitable for those tasks.
    BTW to print at walgreens, put the image on a CD, DVD or memory stick, not a floppy.

    Photoshop is probably not worth the headache of the learning curve if you've never used it before.

    As mentioned, a free program like Gimp or Paint.net will do well for virtually all TTM needs I would think.

    I second that becuase i took photoshop as an elective at my high school last semester and we learned like very little and it took 9 weeks. If you were to buy PhotoShop you would either need to take a course somewhere or watch a ton of videos on Youtube and i mean a ton becuase it is not an easy program to learn. GIMP IS GOOD i make cooler pictures with it then i could with PhotoShop
