Correct, that is why I mentioned the fact that I am also getting a degree in web design. Free lance web designers often work on their own.

You are thinking of just graphical designers. Not a "web designer".

9/10 times a web designer just lays out a web page, they hardly ever create the images used on the site.

I understand that it would pay for itself in quick time.

No one other than macboy find it ridiculous that the software itself is more expensive then the OS it runs on?

More like 4/10. There are more free lance people than most people believe.
Possibly 9/10 if it's a large company.

And it's tax deductible.

I don't find it ridiculous because most people who typically need all the bells and whistles provided have multi-thousand dollar machines to run it on where even the hard drive costs more than the OS. So your point is kind of moot.

yes, there are a lot of free-lancers out there. Unfortunately most can't afford to do it any more because of the economy. Maybe when things pick back up your numbers will be right.

Basically, you have no case. For those who really need it can justify the cost. Photoshop is a large, powerful program and the engineers who made it (and the professional testers) need to get paid. If you can't justify it then odds are you don't need it and gimp is perfect for you.

You know you've lost an argument when you begin to resort to personal attacks.
