    Photoshop! Gimp = fail. Gimp has SOOOOO many icons, photoshop is easier, simpler, and MORE SMEXY! >

    Ummm well i say phtoshop and just go do some tutorials once youve read enough of them you know where everything is in photoshop and you can start to make half-decent ones without needing a tut.
    I've never used GIMP but ive heard its like comparing windows movie maker to sony vegas 9 (or something along those lines)

    Gimp is more easy for simple animations and photo-manipulation..
    But PS has many more features, however the interface can be confusing to a beginner..
    -I suggest Gimp.. or you read a few tuts from out on the net

    Blah
    I suggest PS, you'll always want it, it's more advanced then gimp and has more features, then look at some tutorials here or over at good-tutorials to get you a nice start.

    I downloaded GIMP a while back.
    Didn't like it, too confusing.

    Fine
    Photoshop or Corel Paint Shop Pro. Best to start out. If you want to actually draw stuff (like the renders) get Painter.
