Sorry if this is in the wrong place, if it is you can move/delete it. Anyway I want to know some good free image editing programs I can download. Right now I use Microsoft Picture It! Publishing 2001 it works fine but I would want some more programs I could try. Thanx so much :D

most of the major CG programs have a trial version you can try. You can get it from their website. I use adobe photoshop, which you can download at www.adobe.com. after that, you can choose to buy it or delete it. There are ways to get discounted programs. if you are a college student, ask your bookstore for deals. Also, ask your art or computer sci teachers if they know of any deals. I know of two people that put their money together and bought a prog. There are many options.

and just to stop it from happening: it is against the rules of the forum to talk about hacks, cracks, and other illegal ways of getting programs.

No, just don't talk about hacking or anything illegal.

If you go to download.com, there are plenty of trial versions of programs available, I'm sure. Right? Or am I on the rock again?

I'm using a 30 day trial of Photoshop CS from download.com . It's a great way to test out programs.

Is it working well for you?

noooo, it's only against the rules to talk about illegal ways of obtaining full programs for free.

Definately test out a variety of programs until you find the one you like the best.

Sure, it's great, but like Pooky said I'm just testing it out. I just plan to enjoy it for the few days I have it *dreads the day 30 days is up*.

Edit: Sorry if it sounded like I was suggesting something illegal.

I hope posting websites that feature free graphics editing programs is alright. I've downloaded several free progs of that nature. Anyway, www.snapfiles.com is an excellent, safe site to search for freeware graphics progs, I've also searched www.freebyte.com it has a good selection of graphics programs. as well. To be safe, when downloading from any site always scan the folder with a good AV program before installing it.

I'm also using PhotoShop 7.0 and it's really good.
As an alternative I'm also using Ulead PhotoImpact (it has some really good pre-made filters), Terragen (photorealistic scenery rendering software), Corel Bryce (3D rendering software) and IrfanView (for resizing images).

But you can also try out Gimp (it's a free program), u can find more about it here: http://www.gimp.org/



**pooky edit: no mentioning illegal copies. LAST WARNING, period*

Paint Shop Pro is a great program too. I personally like it more than Photoshop. That's probably because that's what I learned to edit in (and I'm still learning).

I use Photoshop 7.0.1 (download), PSP 8, and Ulead gif maker. Have zero complaints with any of the programs. Love &#39;em all equally. ^_^

I use the one and only Photoshop 7.0 because that&#39;s the only program I have for photo editing and plus I am still learning to use it to the max. So I really didn&#39;t try or own any other ones because I find it is good enough for me..It has all features that I need anyway...but I do want like a 3D program...no money...
