To make creative graphics, you need Adobe Photoshop Elements. It's a pretty advanced program, but it is awesome. You will need lots of time to learn it, but the more you practice, the better you get. And you'll have so much fun. Good luck, CJ. :thumbsup
Aww...well I'm not surprised you want to learn how to make graphics, considering Michael is running an Art Contest in Japan and three lucky winners will get to meet him in person! I'm thinking there will be a few peeps seriously thinking about getting into art now......:thumbsup
Good luck CJ, and don't forget to share your stuff with us in MJEOL!
