If you plan to get one of them, you might consider getting both as part of the 
Adobe Creative Suite 2. On the Adobe website, Photoshop is $649, and CS2 is 
$250 more at $899, but you get "full new versions of Adobe Photoshop CS2, 
Illustrator CS2, and InDesign CS2 software with new Version Cue CS2, Adobe 
Bridge, and Adobe Stock Photos." 
So you get both Photoshop and Illustrator, and InDesign as well. InDesign is a 
page layout program like Pagemaker - it is what I use for making our 
installation poster, the covers for our printed manuals, and a quick-reference

Subject: OT: Which should we purchase, PhotoShop or Illustrator

Does anyone in the group have experience with either of these tools? My
writing group is planning to buy either PhotoShop or Illustrator. We
need a tool to edit graphics that have been added to PowerPoint or
MSWord files.

We get PowerPoint slides to edit and clean up for delivery. In places,
artwork has been pasted into the slide, but contains white boxes that
cover bits of the drawing or text. This method doesn't work in grayscale
because the hidden lines or text show up again.

We need a tool that lets us remove text in the graphics where we do not
have the source file.

Are either of these the right tool for this? Which tool would you
