Hey guys. I'm new to GameSalad and I was wondering...
What program do you use to make graphics?

Please tell me if you can.

    Photoshop is of course the first choice for about anyone if you wanna shell out the cash

    However Gimp is a fairly close free clone that is pretty popular

    It can be a little quirky if you are used to photoshop but it can achieve almost the same results.

    If you think you may want to spend the money and invest in photoshop the main adobe site does offer a full free month of the full version with no restrictions whatsoever

    Have a look here:

    You can also add to that list:

    Google Sketchup
    Art to text
    Pen and paper
    An artist

    QS :D

    I primarily use Photoshop, Paint.NET(windows-only but free!) and Pixelmator.

    I'm using sumo paint. It's free and great for simple artwork. You can also save your images to the site and come back at anytime and edit them

    Firemaplegames introduced me to it about a month ago and I am loving it!

    Since you asked the question I'm guessing that you aren't a photoshop pro. Neither am I and I'm currently using pixelmator (very cheap) to make graphics for a game. It's very easy to use.

    As Arton said, sumo paint is great as well and I use that occasionally. :)

    I personally use Adobe Flash.

    Mainly because I can't exactly use Photoshop or illustrator.

    But also because with Flash its easier to get the transparent image on the places you haven't painted on.

    I only use Photoshop for the editing of images

    Im the same as Drogokillz, I use Flash mainly because its just simple and its vector graphics (easy and amazing scaling), and crops out everything that isn't what you made. :)

    Then I use Photoshop (elements 7.0/6.0) to edit still images. :)

    you have accidentally wandered into the big league ... just delete it, modify your post if you still can and move on with life .... as it is

    Btw: Shake isn't a program one just "gets". It's part of the tool chain in professional movie studio production houses

    Yeah, Shake is brutal. It's like After Effects on Steroids.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?

    I hadn't seen this posted (sorry if its been discovered already) but it looks interesting and priced reasonably:
