For years I've been doing my design work on a program developed for me at at a regional college's CAD-CAM centre. Sadly, after many updates and adjustments, it no longer interfaces with my computer and/or printer.I don't need any help with threading and treadling but I am without desing capability beyond graph paper and pencil, at the moment.
And my technical/ computer/ ability is quite limited. I REALLY need to know what design programs are available for me. I'll learn what I must but don't know where to begin. I want to design on a grid, be able to manipultae the image and reproduce it and then I want to be able to print out the row and column data in numerical form. Thus, Row 1: 2, 6-12, 22, 28, 63-68. etc etc.
I suspect that some aspect of PhotoShop may be useful. Please bear in miind that I live in a rural area, some +60 mi. from a town with a computer sales centre.
I'd appreciate any suggestions.
