Hi Hershel -

Sorry this didn't get through at first.. Got held up by thelist software 
for manual approval(nothing on your part :)

Anywho, I'm a programmer too, but when I decide to dabble with images, I 
usually use the GIMP which is free and runs on windows as well as linux( 
i think).. If I don't have the option to use my linux box and am on 
windows, Fireworks is usually my choice application. It's not free, but 
its pretty intuitive and not as complicated as photoshop.

btw, i'd probably *still* fail 5th grade art class ;)
