I was about to get photoshop, until someone said to me there a few other choices that are cheaper like GIMP, paint shop pro etc..

Does anyone have any suggestions on the best to use, but on a small budget and preferably free. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png

I use GIMP (but can't work with it).

Gimp is free.

You are going to have to try some of these options and see what suits your needs. There are some great suggestions above look at them google them see what other users think, Yes I know it's a slow process however the other choice is photo shop.

To stick my tuppence worth in.

I have used Serif's PhotoPlus and DrawPlus for a number of years now and am very happy with both. What is more, they play very nicely together. DrawPlus is a vector graphics package very similar to Corel Draw.

I have a copy of GIMP on my computer but found it quite difficult to get to know, but then since I only installed it out of curiosity I probably haven't given it a fair chance. It is certainly full featured and they don't come any cheaper !
