I tend to use pic monkey, but I know another popular program seems to be gimp~
Okay thanks mate I will try that now
I wanted to share the program I use for making thumbnails and editing photos.
It's the best free photoshop I have ever come across and not only that it doesn't even require a download! I have used a few different photoshop programs such Adobe CS6 and I struggle to find a thing Pixlr can't do that CS6 can. Seriously, it's basically CS6 but free and no downloads required. If you're new to using photoshop I recommend you maybe try something else since it needs a bit of practice to get use to however if I can use it I'm sure you probably can to!
I hope this helped all of you out there struggling to find a good program that can do what you need it to and not cost $$$.
GIMP is a good one to use, I found it quite difficult after I learnt how to use Photoshop at uni, then decided I wanted to make YouTube vids so I got GIMP because it was free. It took a day or two to get my head around it but I managed!
Gimp is a nice beginner substitute to Photoshop, but no where near as good.
Inkscape is a free software that you can make graphics on.
I also use GIMP because it's free. Some things like shadows for example, doesn't work that good as in Photoshop, but i think i may not complain, it's free!
Are there any people that have experience with GIMP? It is what I am currently using because it is free and I liked it better than Pixlr, but I am not sure if it is a good free alternative to say PS.
It certainly lives up to some expectations. GIMP is a good substitute to PS, if you're looking for free and is much more flexible (and overall much better) than Pixlr from my perspective. I tend to use GIMP and Inkscape for creating graphics.
