    I'd choose PS. I've tried free versions that try to mimic it's features and ability but PS is second to none. GIMP is one of the programs I've tried, I became very good with it after awhile but it was lacking many of the things I need and want for web design graphics and became later useless. I finally took my money and bought PS CS5, I can't say I regret a single thing that was done then.

    I've never used paint.net, I don't understand if that compares to PS or if it has the same features. I've heard it's equal to PS but that's a bit far-fetched seeing me paying $600 for the program.

    Well mine are PS and CS - the newest versions just knock everything off. It is just perfectly funny to work with these and you always discover some new features or shortcuts or things you did not know - it is all just a big game and that makes working with graphic softwares so entertaining and interesting.

    Photoshop
    PhotoPosPro is a pretty awesome freebie
    Pixlr is a phenomenal free addition to firefox that (for an addon) does a mind-numbing great job at imitating photoshop
    FotoFlexer.com is pretty cool for removing backgrounds online quickly

    Since you know PS, I would suggest Illustrator before FW because Illustrator is a vector based drawing program while PS and FW are pixel based painting programs.

    It's a Japanese program. But there's an English patch on the web that converts it. It's a paint program like Photoshop, using layers, brushes, etc. It's very nice.
