    Interesting list! :)

    GIMP and PaintNET are very good sources for the beginners!

    Gimp would be my vote. It’s a decent program, I used it before I had to bite the bullet and buy Photoshop. PS It’s damn expensive but I think it’s worth it in the long run.

    I've used the trial version of Photoshop for my color theory class. I must say I do like photoshop but I'm not paying 400.00 for it. I'm downloading paint.net now, hopefully it will be good since I am a beginner. Wish me luck!

    If you want more of a familiar experience with GIMP you can download this program that installs PhotoShop keybindings.

    Gimp of course. It would be better Gimp to have something like tabbed editing but it is still great.
