thanks archijam. These are great ones, but the one I reffer is way better than gimp and looks more like corel painter ( old fractal painter design ).

Well, Krita is more of a painting app nowadays:
http://krita.org/

But if you don't have a Linux install, I don't know if you can use the newest version.
In the future, Krita will have PSD support (Libre Graphics World reports (http://libregraphicsworld.org/news.php?readmore=769)).

Btw. GIMP really needs some help (http://tasktaste.com/projects/Enselic/gimp-2-8), so tell your coder friends. And lurk the dev mailing list (https://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/lists/gimp-developer/).

The closest thing I've found to photoshop is Photoplus. (For 80 quid!)
http://www.serif.com/photoplus/
Some of the tools are more interactive than photoshop too! No hotkeys for resizing/opacity of brushes though.
There's a downloadable free version too.

Not sure what the restrictions are though.

Man, only found out about Krita today, it's amazing!!! The ammount of inputs and how they can be applyed at the same time it's just mind blowing. Some other neat features directed to painting are simply neat and numerous. The app is full of good sense. Looks like Karbon14 vector features were put there so it's basicly a bitmap and vector application. Sweet! Bit buggy and crashy but... Sweet!

What a great thread, all these new free options for image making. I didn't know any of these. Thanks for starting the thread. Thanks community.

And I'll throw in the quite good online ones:

pixlr - http://pixlr.com/

sumopaint - http://www.sumopaint.com/home/

They're both very, very good. Curves, layer masking (pxlr), interesting filters (both). And you have got to try out the pencil tool in Pxlr! Or symmetry in sumopaint.
