    Well, if you're looking for legally acquired software I believe GIMP may be one of the most powerful and comprehensive. Personally, I find it's interface to be poorly designed. It's still good though.

    I've heard fairly good things about Paint.NET which has a watered down Photoshop feel to it.

    Here's a link I've held onto for online editors:

    I've never tried any, but there may be some merit in the list.

    get to know someone that works for Adobe, then it isn't so pricey when you buy it through them.

    The GIMP is awesome. And legal. Give it a try - if you don't like it you uninstall it and you haven't lost anything.

    Yeah, well I'll never shell out that kind of money for photoshop. The only thing I plan on using the software for is giving myself a visual aide for kitbashing. Thanks for all the imput guys. I think I'll give GIMP a try.
