    I am planing on starting my own transformers comic website, and I need some help. What kind of software do you use to add laser effects and fire and stuff into pictures?:confused:

    If you wanna go high-end, buy Photoshop.

    Otherwise, use GIMP. It's kind of similar to Photoshop, and it's free.

    GIMP is either one of two things:

    #1: A guy in a latex bodysuit. Usually has kinky sexual preferences, like BDSM for instance. For reference, see Pulp Fiction.

    #2: An imaging software program similar to Photoshop, like I said in my earlier post.

    So, which GIMP do you want to use? I guess you can google for both of 'em ;)

    Yeah, GIMP is basically Photoshop, only free. Well okay, it's open source actually. Same difference.

    I'm not sure if you should be posting a thread like this in the Funnies section though...

    Well there's GIMP, and there's Paint.Net (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paint.NET). I'm not quite sure if it can do what you want to do, but it's definitely worth a try. I tried it out in its early releases and it seemed pretty solid. Didn't stick with it simply because I had Photoshop already.

    If you have Microsoft Paint, that could work for low end comics I think... But if you are planning to do stuff like DilaZirk, try Photoshop or GIMP. Or you could try Photo Editor if you plan to do moderate comics.

    For forty dollars, there's Photo Explosion Deluxe, I use that for my editing and effects some sounds, and MS paint for my dailog. Simple and user friendly.
