fylfot: Thanks for such a positive supportive statement and you are right by trying not to let any negative thoughts or opinions overcome us. Certainly the path or new direction may clear for the better of these positive project being worked on. I am in the same situation as Martin, adding with interest to my shopping list Artworks 2 and Photodesk. I was fortunate enough nearly 2 years ago to have someone quite skilled demonstrate Artworks to me, yes impressive! I totally agree that Photography is a RISC OS strength to build on, the user friendliness of our desktop and most DTP/graphical software stuns most of the PC user teachers I show at my school. PC software I feel is pack well with options etc. but when observing so many teachers using various software, I notice that a more skilled level is required to accomplish what our user friendlier RISC OS does for beginner to lower level users. Just in our school alone, photo and clipart graphics are a downfall in our school PC users to the point where the best is simply an almost unaltered (and often a PC bundled) image dragged and dropped into Word or Publisher. Our Media studies PC computers don't have a vector programme like Corel Draw, but they do have Photoshop. Now I don't have Artworks or PhotoDesk, but I still have to do the school's many types of (graphic) certificates because draw and paint allows me to produce better works than Media Studies. I have spoken recently to our media studies teacher about considering a vector programme maybe like Corel Draw or something similar. Our media studies teacher is not a graphics specialist teacher, but a good PC user ex class teacher 2 years prior his Media Studies position. Has produced numerous excellent work considering what standard software and gear he has to work with. Keep smiling! :grin: Cheers, Steve.
