Is there a free photo shop program out there.

The stuff like MS paint abosultely sucks. I'm not looking for bootlegged high end software, but there has to be some free stuff online that's better than paint. Any ideas?
Thanks

Try going here: Irfanview. Has worked well for me in the past, and still creates the smallest image files of any software I've ever used (while maintaining clarity). I believe it is still free to use too (non-commercial usage).

Gimp is the Supreme High Overlord of the imaging universe! Well, it's awfully good, at least. (A fork of it, Film Gimp, later renamed CinePaint, was used for a lot of hit movies). One of the plugins, gfig, that comes with Gimp allows you to do vector drawings.

"Sams Teach Yourself GIMP in 24 Hours" is online at
http://library.n0i.net/linux-unix/ap...%2024%20hours/

It was written in 1999 (I don't know if GIMP ran on MS Windows back then), but is still very helpful. From the book's intro:

"It has an unequivocally fantastic laundry list of features that tend to make even the most hardened hacker puzzle and delight at just how incredibly functional and polished GIMP really is. It is extremely utilitarian, fast, feature-laden, stable, expandable, and is possibly the greatest thing since sliced bread (and the Linux kernel). In short, prepare to be astounded and amazed!"

GIMP has improved a great deal since then.

I use to use Paint Shop Pro 6 which was a free download (shareware), but I just did a search on the site I got it from and it's no longaer free now that they are up to version 11! However the results for my search came up with 34 programs, some of which are shareware, freeware, and demos. Download a shareware or freeware as the demos normally expire after a period of time and the shareware/freeware will not.

I would go with the Gimp, that is what "shadoemtkustoms" uses on youngrodderz and it looks like it is a good program, I dont have it though.
