    anyone know of any free ware that does some of the stuff photoshop does?

    cropping and resizing...colour correcting...sharpening...etc,etc

    GIMP its free, for windows, Mac and Linux, and does pretty much all basic to intermediate Photoshop functionality.

    I use it pretty much daily.

    holy shit this program is go fucking frustrating. I gave up trying to move a selection futher up.

    It's cute, but it's not photoshop. fak. I was excited too.

    you couldnt figure out how to a move a selection?

    was it a separate layer, did you choose the ' move tool '?

    and like i said, its not photoshop, but does most basic to intermediary functionality.

    Forget GIMP, it blows.

    Just go and grab Paint.net


    It'll cover everything you need.

    Gimp - GNU = lots of online tutorials and forums. No need for individual posts here. :)

    I used Gimp and Corel and there are some good ones on the web, but you might have to use multiple sites to get the job at hand done.
