    I'm no graphic artist, but have just completed my first 100% Linux developed site (usually it's just PS that needs firing up). For my purposes (header, background, some "gloss", a little image editing and integration of a logo), Gimp did the job superbly (previously I really only used it for very basic jobs). My main problem in the past with Gimp has been with text (PS does make prettifying your text very simple), but after seeking and following a couple of toots, I am actually quite comfortable with even that now.

    It isn't Photoshop, but it's very capable. There is a learning curve - but then I remember being massively intimidated by PS 5.

    Non-destructive editing and a better interface (and some of the other "limitations" mentioned here) are planned for 3 - I am looking forward to that release.

    Edit:


    I apologise for my massive overuse of parenthesis in this post

    Illustrator is a VECTOR program, so it cannot be an alternative to Photoshop. Period

    The Latest version of Gimp was a huge improvement over it's predecessors although I do agree it doesn't really compete with Photoshop, it can come in pretty handy though sometimes.

    Paint (dot net) has everything that you are looking for. This is probably what I would go with. I myself use macromedia "fireworks" though, and I love that program. It did cost $200 though, but still way cheaper than photoshop.

    Yeah Gimpshop is good albeit it's a little buggy, crashes sometimes.

    Thumbs up

    If you are a "programming guy" and trying your hand at design using Linux tools only, like me, imagemagick will save your life. Your life.
    Seriously, GIMP enthusiasts would be well advised to advise Imagemagick too, because it saved my life while i had to make hundreds of thumbnails in batch mode.
    Imagemagick help options give you a picture of the power of the command line.
    This powerful alternative / complementary toolkit exists, is free, and works.

    Command line was never so aesthetically pleasing!

    Update: Forgot to highlight this part:
    The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the command line or you can use the features from programs written in your favorite programming language. Choose from these interfaces: G2F (Ada), MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM+), Magick++ (C++), JMagick (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), NMagick (Neko/haXe), MagickNet (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP), IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby), or TclMagick (Tcl/TK). With a language interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images dynamically and automagically.

    ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary distribution or as source code that you may freely use, copy, modify, and distribute. Its license is compatible with the GPL. It runs on all major operating systems.

    Adobe Photoshop is a great product. I have been using it since 2003 and I simply love its functionality and ease of use. If there is anything to complaint about, then it has to be the high cost (US$649) involved in buying the software.

    For those who can’t afford Photoshop, here is a list of the 5 great free alternative to Photoshop.

    GIMP
    GimpShop
    Krita
    Paint.net
    CinePiant
