comment Should I start with Fireworks, or is Expression Design comparable?
But I guess that moves us even further away from the question. I'm looking for what application to invest my time in learning for creating designs, not the best way to implement. However, despite that, I'm tempted to give you +1 because it's a good answer - just not a good answer for this question.

Unfortunately, the copy of Photoshop CS2 I have is part of the Creative Suite 2, and therefore not eligible for upgrade pricing; from your link "You cannot upgrade from products within a suite edition to individual products."

And no, I don't intend on making any money from my purchase; I'm a developer, so any freelance work I do is development, with design being left to others, or purchased.

Thanks - +1. I guess my concern with CS2 is how much of a pain it is to install on 64-bit Windows 7, and that I can look forward to no support/updates (and some of the stuff in CS3+ for PS is pretty dang cool). At this point I can't really afford to shell out to upgrade. We've also got answers like graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/989/… which suggest that I'd be better of learning a design tool others will be using ...
