How do you create your Graphics?

Sorry if this has already been asked but...I am a new iOS developer, and wanted to know what program you use to develop your apps graphics. I have heard photoshop, but wanted to know what program other developers use. Thanks in advance for the answers!

Why Inkscape over illustrator? Is it just a cost issue, or is it superior in some way?

It's superior only because we're more familiar with it.

I mainly use Illustrator and then bits in Photoshop Elements. I can understand someone not using both Adobe products. They have similar GUIs, but many things work in slightly different ways. It is probably easier to use something completely different than something almost, but not quite, the same.

Some developers also use something called "an artist" to create their graphics!

Just sayin'!
