Does anyone know of a good program to use for digital art other than photoshop?

I recently lost it from my computer and I'm looking for a good substitute until I can get it back.



EDIT: And I realized I spelled 'substitute' wrong.

Paint might work?

Maybe Google does something.

Paint works fine for some things, but it's limited. I want something where I can have layers and all that fun stuff.

Picasa works really well if you want to adjust the light and contrast, among other things.

Picasa will make managing your photos and other artistic creations a cinch, but for some complex work I use Macromedia Fireworks and GIMP (open-source image editor)

If you want picasa, download it from Origin ( http://originxt.com/node/15446 ). We get a buck if you install it stongue.gif

If you want GIMP, download it from http://www.gimp.org/

Oh yeah, GIMP. That's what I was thinking.

I tried Picasa today. It was very good. I recommend using it, but I'm not ready to give up on Photoshop. It didn't cost me much ($0 + torrents) but I like the idea of having it. XD

Gimp, J. Get it. It's good for anything you'd need it for.

Gimp's for pimps.

But lil' J, there's nothing wrong with being one, if you got rich in the process XD

I like GIMP though, except for the fact that its toolbars are separate windows

Oh right GIMP... This Picasa sounds good though too, and if it gets Origin one whole fantastic dollar...*attempts to download but realizes she's STILL NOT ON HER OWN COMPUTER*

Well, I'll download whichever once I get back my computer, so yeah. Is Picasa good for linework/coloring? I know Becca had GIMP, I just couldn't remember what it was called.

And thanks for the suggestions!! ^_^

Picasa is good for changing the effects of the photos. I'd say it's much easier to work with than Photoshop though.

Yup. Google software are always easy to use and are simple to learn, although they do often lack the sophistication that Adobe put into Photoshop.

But that's also why Google is free and Adobe is 700 bucks stongue.gif

The special Adobe filters, for example. But picasa is fine for any sort of photo-editing.

Picasa is a good substitute. I only got it to help pay for the server, but it's pretty good.
