    I mainly use GIMP, when it comes to my graphic editing needs. It's open source software, making it free to download. Here's the official site - GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program

    Yeah photoshop is the best but if you can't buy it or find another way of getting it, gimp is the way to go.

    Paint Shop Pro for me... but it's not a great proggy. Think I'll try the GIMP you're suggesting.

    i wouldnt say its the best... i mean, GIMP has most of the things PS has and quite a few that it doesnt as far as i can tell. and theres the price difference... free or almost 600 bucks for cs5 or almost 1000 for cs6...


    of course you can get the 30 day free trial if you want... im downloading it right now

    also try GIMP 2.8. i have just been using it and i really like it. just remember to export (shft+ctrl+e) not save as. for some reason it only lets you save it as and .xcf file and that doesnt work for a skin when putting it on the car.

    heres a comparison:
