    Hello,

    I suggest you try GIMP: http://www.gimp.org/
    Its like photoshop, but its free. Its all the rave as far as software in that genre. What kind particular 'graphics programs' are you aiming for? Model? Photo? CAD?

    A while back I was running Ubuntu and I had no problems with Gimp. I was use to using Photoshop in Windows and literally took about 5 minutes to create and slice up a logo.

    The first 'free' graphics software that comes to mind is 'Gimp'. If you want a good graphics software program I strongly suggest purchase Adobe Photoshop. I wouldn't go with any revision less then CS2.

    The Adobe Photoshop can do anything you want or need - 3D or 2 D designs. Plus your able to find TONS! of tutorials on Google, Bing and YouTube about Adobe Photoshop. Best of luck!

    Gimp's fine but when it comes to using a tool like this, unless you're just doing very basic image manipulation you're going to have to invest a fair amount of time learning to use it. For that reason I'd recommend spending some cash and getting Photoshop, otherwise you're learning something that isn't the industry standard. Besides, Photoshop's just better in my opinion.

    Thanks everyone. I was using a free trial of Photoshop cs4, but it expired and I really can't afford to buy it at this time. I'm really looking for something with similar features. I'll try out GIMP.

    If/when you get GIMP, check-out the GIMP extension "GIMPshop" - it changes the layout of GIMP to be a bit like Photoshop.
