    I need to make some templates for stickers and stuff and I don't have photoshop. Turns out, no one I know has it. What is a good free program to use for "making" pictures certain sizes etc?

    Or try the new Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8 Beta. I use beta 5 now and it works like a charm. You don't have any brushes or sump, but for editing it's perfect.

    PaintShop Pro 8 isn't free or at least it wasn't the last time I checked.

    I can't see it being a full no time-limit version whether its beta or not. But even if it is time limited it only takes an hour and a half on 56K.

    It looks good to me, no info given on install of time limited or other restrictions.

    According to Beta 6 release notes:

    "Beta 6 will expire on July 1, 2003"

    You could try Open Canvas. It's not free, but I'm pretty sure you can do the trial version thing. It's only like $50 or $60 to buy tho. (Beats photoshops price)

    I've seen some rather impressive pieces of art created through Open Canvas. Here is a pic from an artist on DeviantArt that uses OC quite a bit. I've installed OC and the interface reminds me a tad bit of GIMP and Photoshop.

    The Beta versions of PaintShop expires 5 weeks after the creation date (not install date)

    I tried it out and I would not recommend Open Canvas. The GIMP and 20/20 (which are both free) have more capabilities than Open Canvas. See this link: http://www.ntfs.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=31797
    Also, it doesn't come near the features of Photoshop or Pixel32 ($32).
