I know this is not the right section, but the trance art section is not getting more than 10 views a day.
So I thought I'd probably get more replies here.

My question is: what software application is good and not too difficult to really make those nice psy art posters and stuff?

I do not think you can find any easy design programs that will do the job on auto mode. As it is with music making you also need a design talent to make good quality flyers (unless it's those boring fractal - lets find a photo and put some text on top).

Photoshop is one of the best but it's also not a beginners program but then again not many are (if any?). Indesign is used by some(mostly as a DTP program) but is very complex. Then you got program such as Illustrator (extended drawing program) but again you need experience to master it.

I am personally not familiar with any easy programs but that does not mean they are not out there. My point is though that no matter how easy a program is it's the creativity and idea from the designer that does the trick. Not the software.

Sure I understand it's very hard to make good graphic designs.
But I'm not interested in wasting lots of time just to get to a point, where I'm finally able to get started.

But the point is you'll not be able to do quality design without those programs and skills both creative and technical. There's no easy way out...It's a long learning process and experimentation that result in those flyers you like. And you need these programs (as far as i know) to do the job.

man its the only way.. All these nice stuff you re talkin about, are made with that software (or similar). There re not programs that do it for you (either if its muzik or grafix or anime or script writing or... ). Photoshop has very powerfull capabilities.. its not to difficult to learn (well actually to start learning..). and day by day of course u will learning new and more interesting stuff..
Start by simple 'playing' with other photos (ur own or not) to understand what all those filters/effects and other tools do. Then start making a background image for example from scratch.. (When working with photoshop always remember The Layers.) Its magic! heh
After that you can try a vector graphics design app (like illustrator trippy said or coreldraw), if you want to have more flexibility on your designed objects..
While doing all that, dig into ebooks (there re hundreds..), tutorials on design techniques, other peoples work). Then as trippy said again.. its up to you, your creativity and the passion for this..

Programs to use for psy-art

1. Photoshop ( image manipulation and polishing of images )
2. Freehand / Illustrator ( for line drawings / vector based images )
3. 3d Studio Max / Maya ( 3d rendering program, all yer 3d stuff and 3d abstracts )

Polish the image off in Photoshop - Voila!

But if i had to chose just one to be good at in terms of psy-art, it would have to be photoshop cause its relatively simple, and the range of creations do-able are endless...

njoy..

agreed lol! hehe it really helps , the creativity just flowss out of u! as far the programs for psy-art go, the most common and most useful ones have been covered. Photoshop, if u know how to use it properly, can do many many wonders! not only for polishing images etc but also for creating shapes, abstracts etc. what i usually do is use fractal generators and programs such as Apophysis, generate different fractals and vectors and then use them in photoshop , manipulate the blending modes, hues, and numerouss other things. tutorials and all work well..just get familiar with the programs, its not that hard at all and definately not a waste of time. once u get a hang of it, the the possibilties are infinite! good luck!
