    Try looking on Google for The Gimp.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    my first couple projects used Paint, but then I found an old copy of Photoshop at a computer show in Huntsville, AL.

    Do a google search on the GIMP. You'll love it. Has a lot of Photoshop functionality, only it's open-source and completely free. It works on Linux and Windows, and some other platforms (I think it works on BSD)

    I thought as a child,
    I reasoned as a child.

    I put childish ways behind me"

    I would recommend GIMP rather than PhotoShop. Mostly because it would be illegal to obtain the latter of the two via the avenue you suggest. GIMP is just as good (if not better), and it's free.

    You can get it from:
