I need an image manipulation software with certain features, the cost doesn't matter to me.

I am looking for the following features:

A program which enables me to: Make logos and other vector works and allows a little bit of raster aka bitmap editing too. I need images to be able to be optimized for print and on-screen media (i.e smartphones and laptops). I would like some kind of Batch Processing and the program should be easy and have a lesser learning curve.

I don't need a complete suite, I just need one program that does these things.

Thanks in advance.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Your requirements are extremely broad and, at times, opposing. Please see this meta answer for more info. – Farray Mar 2 '12 at 17:01
I think it's a fair enough question to ask. A good answer would explain why you probably need at least two applications, and the extent to which CS apps are integrated or overlap. – e100 Jul 5 '12 at 17:56

Adobe Fireworks will give you a nice mix of vector and bitmap editing. There are plenty of tutorials out there and its interface is pretty standard, so learning it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Edit: Lots of info given to me about Fireworks on a question I asked and that question is available here.
