Apple Computers
While it's somtimes difficult to be Mac loyalists, we have maintained our allegiance to this platform for more than a decade.


Adobe Photoshop
If you don't want to pony up the $600 (US) for the gold standard of image editing applications, try Photoshop Elements. It's only about $75 (US street) and has an unbelievable number of features, though sadly no CMYK capabilities.


iView MediaPro
The best media management and cataloging application for the Mac. It's easy to use, absolutely packed with features and supports industry standard metadata. Download the free trial.


Graphic Converter
Converts pictures to different formats and contains many useful features for picture manipulation.


Macromedia Dreamweaver MX
Our choice for a WYSIWYG HTML editor. But we still use BBEdit quite a bit, because editing code in Dreamweaver still isn't as easy as it should be.


Adobe InDesign
Fast becoming our page layout program of choice, and the latest version of Quark doesn't seem to threaten this decision. A few years from now, we predict Quark will become completely usurped as the standard.


Quark Xpress
Until then, we still use Quark for many projects.... It just hasn't had a worthwhile upgrade in 4 years (including 5.0, which is a great disappointment) and that price tag is absolutely criminal.
