    So I tried searching to see if there were any good Photoshop alternatives. Both in these forums and on the Windows Shop (keep wanting to say App Store). I cannot find anything yet that looks like it will meet my needs. I am not looking for Lightwave or other management software. I need something to work on photos. I do not like the GIMP, either. No matter how much I try, I just do not like that program. On the Mac side, I actually have Photoshop (CS6). I need something that will allow me to work in layers and masks as well as the normal standard touch-ups. I care less about filters as I do actually putting time and thought into preparing a photograph.

    I have Photoshop on my Mac and really don't want to put out a whole bunch more money for a 2nd license for the Surface. My MBP is still my main machine. I will, however, check those forums out.

    Not a software pirate I suppose. How unique for this day in age! Adobe released CS2 for free here. It's lacking in new features (obviously) and uses their old engine, although it may be better than nothing. Other than CS2 I'd suggest looking into GIMP and Paint.net.
