    I just use MS Paint for most of it, and occasionally I use Adobe Photoshop for some special editing.

    If by jagged you mean pixelized, you'll want to antialias the picture. Just search download.com for something that can do that for you.

    I use photoshop and imagready for almost everything.

    Photoshopped by someone else for me.

    Anime Girls had many various opacity adjustment airbrush work done to the girl in that photo to give various spots of her head like her ribbons, her bangs, and the center of her eyes a little extra shine.

    ^ Example website layouts with logos that were photoshopped.

    You get the idea.

    Govtcheez, you are hilarious.

    I use Macromedia Fireworks. Admittedly not free or cheap at all, but I use it for everything even though I have Photoshop. Examples include my avatar, my old avatar (currently found at this link), and the attachment to this post (originally for a web page).

    I like GIMP. I generally suck at making any sort of art on a computer, though, but GIMP is quite a nice program.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    How do I put this delicately. That logo is ugly as hell.
