comment How were scientific illustrations made before the spread of digital computers?
This answer makes me feel ooooooooold. At 34, when I was in High School, we had a mechanical drawing class, and Mechanical Drawing II was CAD. We had to learn how to use these types of drawing apparatus BEFORE advancing to CAD. Those curves were tricky to master but once you managed to get the hang of them, and practiced, even someone of poor freehand drawing capability could do pretty well with engineering design.

Out of curiosity, what software do you prefer to use or is that what you are suggesting with Pixelmator?

comment Lower-cost alternative to Photoshop
FYI, layer styles are, in fact, now supported with version 3.0+

Yes, this is about what I had expected to here. One good alternative appears to be Pixelmator but, as you say, all design schools seem to strictly focus on Adobe products. Since I might possibly employ interns in the future I may need to focus on the tools that they are most focused on and motivated to use. It's looking more and more like PhotoShop is going to "win by default" which is a rather sad conclusion.

+1, strictly for that small, well placed, second paragraph.

Techsoup, apparently, no longer offers Adobe software. Many blog posts pointed to them but it looks that something behind-the-scene has caused them to pull Adobe software from their offerings. Yes, I think the biggest worry is that if I create logos, and standardized image templates, that my successor will have a tough time pulling these files into a different software tool. I'm the starting point. There is a fair chance that in a year or two I might be able to hand over this specific role. Until then, I want to be sure that all brand-related material that I create will be reusable.
