I am currently running Windows 7, I do quite a bit of photo and video editing, and CD/DVD burning and copying.

To do these things I use Paint Shop Pro,Video Studio Pro, Roxio Creator, and Photoshop.

Is there comparable software available to accomplish those tasks that would run on a Linux system?

 

PS. I did some searching, and I see that Gimp would work , among several others.

I use Gimp, but not very often.

I'm going to search video editors next, but it looks as though there is a selection of software out there.

Thanks for the links, I do not have any version of Linux installed yet, but if I would go with one, I just was curious about the availability of software.

It looks like there is quite a variety of options.

That is just a sample of the software you can get.  You do not need to Install linux to try it use a live disc ( download the .iso and burn to dvd) then open software manager.

Type into terminal "software-center" then press enter without the " "

That should do it. If you want to use command line to install a package then the correct way to do it would be

sudo apt-get install package-name

or

sudo apt-get remove package-name

With the kind of software you are talking about perhaps have a look at Ubuntu Studio.  It is pre-installed with a lot of software likely to be of interest.  There's nothing to stop you using any version of Linux you want and installing the software you want, of course, but it's an easy option to give a taste of what's available.

Hey Frined, You can also check out http://www.toolpic.com it is similar to the one you shared, but it has some paid features which pixlr have in paid version and they are offering in free version. Do check and review so that users can benefit from it
