    GIMP, I guess.

    There are quite a few good free ones out there. Although you've probably heard this a gazillion times... Google it [​IMG]

    There is also Paint.NET

    I prefer it more than GIMP considering the simplicity of it.

    Read my mind,
    Paint.net is definitely cooler.

    I like it because of the forums it has relating to paint.net

    It also has plguins you can download. [​IMG]

    Paint.NET is not quite advanced enough to make Photoshop-quality things as easily
    I would put it on the MSPaint side of editors

    Why? I'd say it's pretty good, i like it more than photoshop. Why? Because i got used to Paint.net earlier than photoshop. And now i have photoshop,
    i still use and like Paint.net more. Photoshop takes too long to start up, and takes too much space. Also, Paint.net is free, and there are thousands of
    plugins and tutorials. Photoshop might also have much plugins, but i haven't looked into that. And, i love the interface, the color choosing window,
    the possibility to anti-alias lines as you draw them (not with the penciltool, just with lines and the paintbrush. You also have the possibility to
    not anti-alias the lines.

    Try photofiltre. It's a small program, loads quickly and there is a freeware version.
