Has anybody bought this / used it, seems reasonable value at about 45....

Yeah I've used it. Nice program.

Have hardly touched the surface, but created some flash animations for webpages.
Only problem is that they have 'simplified' it by not having a timeline, so if you get it wrong you have to go back to the begining and start again.

I own the extreme edition and i am very satisfied with it. It's even useful when it comes to texture creation and interface design. A real bargain. You can download and try the demo.

Check out http://www.xaraxtreme.org

The Linux, FreeBSD and OSX version is open sourced (more or less) and available for free. I believe it lacks a couple of the features found in the Windows version, but is still a nice tool. I've used it on Linux only, and last time I checked the OSX version was a bit behind.

Xara Extreme is brilliant!

I use it for cutting up textures, modifying them, the blend modes are cool. And the vector aspect is great. It can create pdf files too. I love it :o) Well worth the cash i say.

I've tried the Pro edition too, it's great...

Although, they have a flaw in their demo version. You can use the full program indefinetly, by putting the date of your computer back. Pretty poor security :o)

Also look at this:

Ulead Photo Impact 13 Pro now comes with Real Draw, a PHENOMENAL texture creation and painting program!

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 11 is not bad.

Inkscape (opensource) combines vector editing with many picture editing tools.

My favorite is Ulead Photo Impact 8 at all. It is the perfect pixel tool (includes some plugins)!
