Designing - that depends what you mean. All the freeware programs have basic "painting" functions but if you are looking for more advanced capabilities like textures, layering, smudging and other pseudo-photographic stuff, 3D effects, etc. then (I think) the only freeware that will touch that would be the GIMP.
Morphing - There's a good freeware program called WinMorph. Sometimes it's unstable so it pays to save your work often but the results are good. http://www.debugmode.com/winmorph/download.php
