I am new to this forum and would like to say hello to everyone.

I have a question concerning banner graphics and dramatic text.

I can't seem to design a high quality banner. My guess would be lack of quality software. I currently use Microsoft Picture It Photo Premium 9 & Easy GIF Animator 3. Although my banners look decent, they just don't have the look I desire.

Can anyone offer affordable software suggestions?

Thanks

AJ

Welcome to Ozzu.

I think when it comes to "value for money" i don't see any reason why you should not go and spend a little bit on Adobe Photoshop CS2.
