photoshop is wicked wicked easy to get off kazaa, but it´s very illegal, so I would not recommend it because it´s morally wrong.
However, it´s one of the most pirated programs out there because it´s so expensive and so useful.
However, you can get a very nice editing program that is very similar to photoshop that´s caled gimp.
gimp.org I think.
It´s made for linux but I think you can also get a windows version, and you can do pretty much anything you can do in photoshop.
Best of all...
GIMP IS TOTALLY FREE AND COMPLETELY LEGAL
yo beav- how did you do the clear corners? did you clone stamp them or do a color overlay?
