As a couple others have mentioned, The Gimp is a good alternative to photoshop.. some people say its too hard to use or not as feature complete as photoshop, but its come a long way since a year ago even. today, its what i personally use on my home workstation for editing pics from the digicam. i'm no graphic designer or anything, but the number of filters it comes with is pretty amazing too. also, you can't beat the price :) .djc. nate koechley wrote: > i'm curious too: what about photoshop? as a > developer, photoshop is a necessity. does linux have > a viable alternative yet?
