So I found out about a students' deal for the new Adobe Photoshop Extended CS6, and was wondering if I could do digital art on their and not just photomanipulation. If anyone has had any experience with this, could you please tell me if it is possible. Thanks!

I got CS6 and it is by far the best photoshop for digital painting and such. It feel like it was tailored for it more than the other version.

Yes for painting. Things can easily be done in photoshop. Its a very powerful program that can do tons and tons of different things. Its an artists #1 tool imo.

The short answer is yes. You can do any kind of digital art with Photoshop, including sketching, painting, photo editing, 3D modeling, and video editing.

I wouldn't use it for vector work...

there are better options for vector, but photoshop's vector tools are perfectly serviceable for basic stuff

I didn't say vector, but it can be as long as you know what you're doing and it fits your purpose.

Hi,
If you have the money to spare and you are really dedicated to art, it might be a good investment. If you are just doing art for fun, you can get GIMP for free. [link] It's similar to Photoshop but doesn't have as many features.

You can download a free trial of photoshop if you want to try it out.

Thanks!

I tried GIMP a couple of times, but I didn't really like it. I could never save any of the images as "PNG," only "Gimp."

You're welcome =)

The makers of GIMP made a questionable choice to make the "save" function save files in gimp format. Probably because the gimp format will automatically retain all of the options, layers and settings that are available in your file.

However you can EXPORT the image as a PNG, JPG etc. using the "export" function.

Ahh, okay, maybe I'll try GIMP again and use the export function!. Thanks again!

Photoshop is the de facto standard for most non-vectorial art. You'll be able to do a huge amount of things including digital painting and photomanipulation.

You might hesitate with PaintTool SAI though - it's a specialized-for-digital-painting tool and is more ergonomic than Photoshop (as in, more beginner/intermediate user friendly). On the other hand it doesn't do anything else than that, whereas Photoshop is polyvalent.

And I'll look into SAI.

"non-vectorial"

psst...the word you are looking for is "raster" :meow:

How cruel. I actually knew the word but removed it for fear of making it too techy.
... But non-vectorial is worse. Oh dear.

it is worse.

also I think if the person you're talking to can differentiate between vector and raster, there's a good chance they also know those words...and if they don't, you know, they can just google what you said. if you start saying stuff like "non-vectorial", well, how are they going to google that?

I've been using Photoshop CS for around 4+ years now. I draw a lot, if not most of my drawings on there, so yes, you can use it as a drawing tool.
