What program to use for simple 2d graphics?

Recommended Posts

I am a begining game programmer and I am interested in what program to use to make the images for my games. I read alot of review for programs and I don''t know which I should use. I am considering Photoshop (but thats too expensive probably), Paint Shop Pro or Macromedia Fireworks. What do you think I should use? Thanks

I have always liked Paint Shop Pro. Very feature rich and easy to use. Never used Fireworks.

You can also consider use Blender for creating 3D images, then taking screen shots at various angles to create very nice 2D animations. You would still need a 2D package for cleaning up the images.

then make it fast.
