    What's the benefit of Inkscape, exactly? I am unfamiliar with the program, but it looks like another Photoshop variation. How does it compare to GIMP in your opinion?

    One piece of software which hasn't been mentioned at all is the good old Microsoft PowerPoint :biggrin: I know it's not technically free but many people probably have it just hanging around on their computers.
    Combined with a little imagination it's surprisingly useful. I obviously use it for my videos as well, so it makes sense for me to create my thumbnails there, too. While you can't really free-form draw in it (or you can but....don't :laugh2:), it's great for compiling images, backgrounds and texts. It doesn't have that steep learning curve many of the more professional programs have, but instead is very easy to use. I can highly recommend it if you want to keep your thumbnails simple (f.ex. image+text).

    As for software that can create graphics from scratch, I'm not really an expert, but even I have managed to get good looking stuff out of InkScape.

    I absolutely love Gimp. It has everything that Photoshop has! It is amazing... it is almost hard to believe it is free!

    I am a big fan of Sketchbook pro from Autodesk, It's not free, but it only costs $20 a year and is easy to use and can do most of the things photoshop can do.
