    I'm assuming GIMP isn't there because you don't like it.

    GIMP is as close as OpenSource gets to Photoshop. It had a kinda big learning curve though :\

    This paint.net looks like microsoft's way to combat GIMP.

    As far as open source programs are, those two I mentioned are as good as they get. I can easily say that nothing beats photoshop.

    True that nothing beats photoshop, but holy hell, gimp is a GREAT free competitor if there's ever been one.

    Holy shit. Thats amazing. I'm gonna have to snag that and gimp and throw it on at home when i'm done at work, just to see. I'm VERY excited to try that out.
    (i have the cs3 super-awesome-amazing-suit up and running at home... but its one of those "long-term-trial" kinds of dealies. [​IMG] )

    It's not made by Microsoft, though, it's done by a bunch of Uni students. Microsoft only offers them some support.

    GIMP all the way. I use Photoshop CS3 but at school when I need to edit something GIMP is always a big help.
