  1. 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.


  2. 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!
