Let me start off by saying I have little to no graphic design experience, and will likely be using Word for my invites . . . I know Gimp is a free program that interprets vectors, as opposed to Word, which does not.  Aside from that, some bees have mentioned free 30-day trials of Photoshop.  Good luck!

I’m using Photoshop.  It’s the only Adobe program I’ve ever bought and I can manage to do pretty much anything I would do in InDesign.

I’m currently learning to use both GIMP and Inkscape.  Both of them are free downloads!

I downloaded Inkscape, which is free…and have had pretty good luck with that.  I don’t see myself doing a lot of graphic design post wedding, so I didn’t want to shell out the cash for Illustrator.  There was a bit of a learning curve since I had never used any kind of graphic design program, but I like everything I have done so far.

I use a mixture, I haveCS3 illustrator and indesign, and photoshop…. But I actually use the most, Microsoft Publisher…. Its really really handy you can use jpeg piccies as well as others.. and create layers like photoshop. Also your able to download differant fonts off the internet and able to use them also in publisher so giving you a similar font range to say indesign or illustrator…

I’ll jump on the publisher bandwagon. I use it for everything! It’s simple enough for the computer dumb (i.e. me) not to screw up.
