Unfortunately Quark is nothing like Photoshop. Photoshop's purpose is to work specifically with photographs, there manipulation and enhancement along with creating special effects. The images are imported into the Quark document which is strictly for publishing. The two serve different purposes but marry together well.

Yes, Quark is expensive. I haven't upgraded in years due primarily to the cost and my current version (4) serves my needs nicely.

If it were me I would go with Photoshop since that will give you lots of control with your images. There are other programs you can use for publishing, depending on your end use. You may look at Pagemaker. I've never used it but I have a friend who is a proffessional furniture designer and relies on Pagemaker for his publishing.
