Gimp or paint.net are free.
Adobe PS and Corel are for advanced users and they both have a 30 day trial period for you to check out.
I use all of the above mentioned software and for quite some time now but I'd have to disagree .... Photoshop is one of the more difficult to master if you use it to it's full potential. Corel only seems more difficult because you are learning to use a "suit" a bit like MS office.
Corel consists of more that one program this is why it comes across a bit more involved. If you were trying to just learn how to use Corel PhotoPaint alone you wouldn't find it any more difficult than PS. CorelDraw is a different kettle of fish as this is a vector based program with full support for bitmap editing included .... much better value for money in my opinion

I appreciate the replies, all. Believe it or not, I have an "antique" version of CorelDraw, won it as a door prize when I was a member of a PC User's group. It's a complete retail box with 3.5" floppies and a CD, version 5. I believe that I tried to install it under Windows XP rather recently and it seemed to resent being woken from its long sleep.

I've played around a bit with The GIMP in an Ubuntu install but didn't really get very far. However, tutorials are all over the net these days so my ignorance could probably be cured rather quickly

I'm thinking I'll probably give Paint.net a try. I'm more of a technical person than artistic, but one never knows...

For the small amount I've done, I use Paint.NET, good price, it's free.

I started with Photoshop when I was in college. It was part of my syllabus. Also had some knowledge in CorelDraw. I have been making sigs from the year 2003 and till now no turning back. After entry into SF, learned some more from CDR after Nick showed some beautiful sigs he made.

Have also tried Gimp, but I feel the menu is all scattered and never touched it again. No Paint.net either.

As far as the gallery is concerned, yes, we can go for it.

And glad Lava King liked my sig for him.
