I've recently started looking into making graphics for Websites and video overlay type things. I've tried Microsoft Paint which obviously doesn't reall do the job, and I've also tried Paint.net which was actually pretty good, but it either doesn't do some of the things I want, or in order to do those things you have to go through a complicated process. So what are some good free art programs that can be used to make the sorts of things I'm trying to make?

Gimp is good. You might also try the drawing program from openoffice.org and from irfanview. Also if you go to http://www.giveawayoftheday.com and check each day they usually have a free art program once per month. Just be aware that you have to download it and install it completely on your computer on the same day they offer it.

Ah but the question is: would that program be windows based or linx based. Not every one uses windows.
