I have loved doing graphics since my first experience with them - I use mostly
PhotoImpact XL, but I also use PSP8 as well.
I learned on PhotoImpact 6 - so PI is where I feel most at home but PSP8 is a wonderful program also.
Below are a few examples of some things I have done, some were done from tutorials and some are my own creations.
There are also links to sites that are using my backgrounds.
