Free photo editing program? Answered

Hey, I recently got myself a sweet camera, and am now in need of a sweet photo editing program. I, being an extremely cheap guy, will not buy it. I WILL NOT! Anyway, Ive tried a few programs, including photofun studio, picasa, and another program that came with my computer. They all have at least one major flaw. So, I was hoping that you guys might be able to direct me to a good, free, editing program. Thanks guys!

Find out if someone you know bought Photoshop (either via download or buying the disk) then ask if you could borrow it and install it on your computer (it allows use on up to 5 different computers). If they downloaded it then download the trail of whatever version they have and ask them for the key. If nobody you know has Photoshop download the trial for Photoshop elements 7. If you like it enough you may end up buying it (it's about $100-$150 I don't remember.

Look for Macromedia Fireworks. It is just like photoshop. If you are a student or buy a used copy, since macromedia was bought out by adobe, you get it for less than 100 dollars.

Thats an easy one GIMP is the best by far. I have edited family pictures to my avatar on GIMP

Pirate the best; Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended. Otherwise, GIMP or Paint.NET.

I agree with Storm, Paint.Net is excellent. I don't really like piracy, and I've been able to do about as much (if not more) than what I've been able to do with Photoshop. It's an easier interface as well.

well, most computers already come with Adobe photoshop, and also, Gimp is a really good program as well.

Well, you could find a torrent to download Photoshop (but thats illegal) you could try GIMP, located here http://www.gimp.org/.

General Image Manipulation Program or something like that or GIMP for short is what i mostly use...Paint.net requires the .net foundation so GIMP is all but guaranteed to work, and it has tons of add ins and its i think GNU licensed

Gimp is probably the most common one for PC, but I just use paint, appleworks or pages.
