Well, there is GIMP {GNU Image Manipulation Program}:

I don't know anything about it other than it exists [and the price is right!]

Gimp is a very competent photo editor. It is difficult to learn though.

Ken,

There is Linux CorelDraw 9 suite out there. In fact, I purchased a Linux CD9 (3 CD set) off of Ebay for $14. about 4 months ago. I have yet to install it, though.

I've also had the Windows version of CD9 on my desktop. I have to reinstall beings that we recently changed our OS.
The terrible thing is, I don't recall all the editing options in Paint. Previously I had only dabbled with it a little but have intentions of spending more time with the software.

If you can find it for cheap, I doubt that you would be sorry to install it. It is a powerful program, having both corel draw & paint. I had alot of fun in just the short time I spent "fiddling" with it. A very creative program.

You can find out what this program is capable of doing by searching for CorelDraw 9 suite.

On the back of my Linux CD9 set, it states that you need:

.Linux Kernel Release 2.2 or higher/X-Windows System

.glibc libraries 2.0, 2.1 or compatible

.Package management software for installing Red Hat or Debian packages

.Pentium 200 Processor

.64 MB Ram (128 MB recommended)

.255 MB of hard disk space to install CorelDRAW 9, Corel PHOTO-PAINT 9, Help files and fonts

.CD-ROM drive

. SVGA monitor

.Mouse or tablet

If you go onto the CNET site, go to downloads and type in Linux, you may find some useful programs there.

Good luck,

~Kate

Lazy,

I just checked out your profile! I once was a Pharm Tech., too.
A great job to have!!

In fact, it's the one and only job that I really loved doing and I miss it.
I worked in a clinical setting and so really got to know the patients. Most made my job that much more worthwhile.

When I left, my sister took over my job, so I felt better with my leaving.

Anyway, what I just really wanted to say...I think you have a fabulous job! :mrgreen:

There is a very easy program for learning the Gimp called Groking the Gimp (may have to check spelling). Do a Google search on Gimp and you will find a lot of programs and tutorials on it. Actually if you know Elements or Paint Shop, most of the same parts are there.
