Default Simple DTP software help/suggestions

Hello

After years of using various versions of Print Artist and PrintMaster I find that it is time to update our new computer with something new and easy to use on Windows 7.

I need software that I can create round templates for designing pinback buttons. I need to be able to easily import photos and clip art. Also double arc text.



Any new suggestions or do we just go with the same as before?

I'd use Adobe Illustrator for jobs like that, but I'd do it because that's the software I have as part of the Adobe Creative Suite. And I'm also a Mac user.

Are you happy with the software you've been using, or does it have limitations that make you want to change? If so, can you let us know what they are, or why you are considering a change?

New computer that has no DTP installed.

I will most likely end up with a newer version of a previous program.

Always hoping for something better is all.
