    Does anyone know the best program to use , or to purchase for using on mac book pro for graphic designing. To PSP
    Is there I could have sworn i came up with photoshop x9 a couple of times that could be used on mac, but now i can't find it.pretty spooky if u ask me.
    But anyways other then spending up to 100 dollars i need the best graphic designer program that use vectors, layers, masks
    colors distortions blur and others.

    may God bless

    Hello and welcome.

    I actually switched from Adobe Photoshop (bitmap) and Illustrator (vector) to Affinity Photo (bitmap) and Affinity Designer (vector). They are far less costly (currently on sale in the App Store for $39.99 each - normally $49.99 each).

    -Which model Mac?
    -Which version of OS X?
    -What kinds of things are you looking to design?

    Yes, the Affinity apps should be able to do that type of graphics very easily.

    Affinity Designer is like Adobe Illustrator
    Affinity Photo is like Adobe Photoshop and PaintShop Pro

    Definitely check them out at the links above.

    Let me know what you think.

    No worries...did they fulfill your need?

    Unfortunately, I have extremely limited experience with PSP, and I don't know of any tutorials or training when moving from PainShop Pro to Affinity Photo/Designer. But, here are some they have made: In-house Affinity Photo Video Tutorials.

    Hope that helps,
