I would use GIMP and you can download it HERE It takes a while to learn, but you get used to it.

Like Starbucks said, and like I had mentioned in your earlier question about animation. GIMP is very good free program to use....I have a few pieces I've made from GIMP for examples of what you can do if you're interested

Click the image to open in full size. - An example of a slide show animation...

Click the image to open in full size.- A past avvie, this is an example of transparency - no background - which GIMP can handle well!

Click the image to open in full size. - See the blue glow in the background? That was made from a 'Gradient' you'll learn about those when you download it...they can come in handy alot!

Click the image to open in full size. - For some reason, GIMP has a lot of space-related things you can do to a picture...I don't know why, but it's really cool! If you download GIMP I can show you how to do some of this! It's very easy

Click the image to open in full size.- This is actually a spinny star from WI that's using Transparacy (no background) animation and a gradient to make the rainbow on the star! This one took some time, but it turned out right!

Not some of my best work, but you get the basic idea I think!
And, in fact, for every graphic I make...I use GIMP! That includes my profile stuff!

So you can do a lot with GIMP...infact, it's become so popular I'm considering writing a guide on it for WI members. I know a lot who use it, but there's so much to GIMP....so it'll take a very long time to complete a full guide

If you have any questions about GIMP, feel free to VM/PM me. I'll be glad to help!

And that ends the infomercial
Just kidding!
Hope this convinces helps you!

Gimp is good, but it gives viruses to your computer. I would suggest photoshop.

GIMP is perfectly safe to download...
All 4 of our computers have it, and we've had no problems with it.

Photoshop costs at least $100-$200 though
If you can get it, that's great. It's fantastic...but it's incredibly expensive....
