Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for what software I should by. I have a fairly new
computer and the photo/paint software's free trial is up and I have decided I don't care much for it(Corel) and would like something new, not too expensive. I am looking for photo editing, card making, clip art, etc... And also, any suggestion for a good art/paint/draw software I would appreciate it. Thanks a bunch

Why buy, when you can get FREE? :thumbsup:


You need to download two programs for Windows in order to use the GIMP: the GIMP and the GTK runtime environment, which is available for download on the same site. The program won't work without it. Also, if you speak a language other than English, you can select it when you install GTK.

Here's some GIMP resources you might find useful:
GIMP Tutorials at gimp.org
GIMP Tutorials at pixel2life
GIMP User Group (GUG)
Grokking the GIMP
GIMP User Manual
Simple Animations

And if you want to give 3D graphics a try:

Here's some Blender resources you might find useful:
