    But the problem is, a photo is not what you really want for graphics.
    I know the last major version of PS that I used was CS2, and it did have some vector graphic functionality, but Illustrator was what was designed for working with vectors.

    I use Photoshop for bitmap editing and creation but Illustrator or Corel Draw are the correct tools for anything which may require resizing where degradation such as jagged edges must be avoided in enlarged versions.
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    I don't know the Illustrator, so I won't argue against. I am using CS5 but sure, mostly for photography, not vector graphics.

    For 2D CNC paths, vinyl cutting paths and any other graphics you wish to be able to scale without degradation you need a Vector Graphic not a Bitmap Image. Vector Graphic packages are unsuitable for working with bitmap images of normal complexity because every block of every colour would require it's own vector outline and colour fill resulting in enormous files which tend to be totally unmanageable, even a small colour gradient would have a huge number of colour bands.
