I always wanted Photoshop. The problem is, I didn't want/couldn't afford to spend the money.
So, I took a look around to see what options I could find for free. Here's one that I just recently downloaded: Serif Photoplus
They also have a $9.99 version, but I thought I would see how I like the free version before I think about shelling out any money.
Basically, what I wanted was the ability to add text to a photo, since we're on a lot of different music sites, and it would be nice to have something that looks professional.
My standard procedure is to search for a photo on Google Images, download it, then (with my new software) add a title to it. Like this:
Okay, this last one is a little off-kilter. I'll have to go back and fix that. But you get my drift.
I haven't tried any of the other features yet, but for my purposes, I think this will work. PLUS, it's free!
There is other free software out there as well, but this one had text layering, which I needed, so I went with Photoplus. You might want to search for yourself to find something that works for you.
By the way, "Off The Track" is our new instrumental. It's kind of a bluesy rock orchestral type thing. I really like it.
