For most of the design community, Adobe's Photoshop has always been there for you. You create your layered graphics and export it to your site and everything is well and good.

But now, there is a new face on the scene.

GIMP is a raster graphics program that can easily replace MS Paint. But can it replace Photoshop? I'll leave that argument to the They've posted an article about who would win in the battle between GIMP and Photoshop.

Ehh...personally, I would recommend Adobe Fireworks (Raster AND Vector graphics capable). :-)

If you want to see what GIMP can do, check out some of the tutorials.
