    Hi Luke,

    CorelDraw - A very powerful vector illustration package with great export-to-raster capabilities.
    Photoshop - The industry standard for raster image editing. Nothing equals it.
    Fireworks - A nifty program that combines good vector creation and raster handling; plus a few automated rollover creation and slicing tools that are great for Web design.
    Paint Shop Pro - A raster editing program like Photoshop but not nearly as good.

    That's a down and dirty liineout. You can get more insight and details visiting the for Photoshop, for Fireworks, and for CorelDraw and PaintShop Pro.

    Good Vibes!
