An enhanced image editor is on the mythical 'To-Do" list. ;)

I have one more tool to share :)

PhotoFiltre by Antonio Da Cruz

The layout is quite similar to Photoshop and it has tons of functionality (layers, plugins, and much more).

Best of all, there is a free version that has already a lot of functionality and then there is a payed version (about 25) with so much functionality that I have not missed anything I need for my work.

The Free Version can be found here: http://photofiltre.free.fr/

[QUOTE=UberDark]... If creating a circle in Gimp is frustrating you i think you should not start photoshop either ...[/QUOTE]
Creating a circle in Photoshop is easy-peasy (Marquee tool). See this page of my Platform Tutorial for examples.

I use Adobe Illustrator for pixel art, its fantastic!

You can always go back and save the artwork in a higher resolution without loss of quality if you plan on making a game that takes advantage of different resolutions.

Corel Painter is also very nice and very user friendly. You might want to try the free trail as well.

If you want to do simple sprites you could go for Pickle or GraphicsGale.

There was a topic about graphic softwares in the tools/ressources sections but i couldn't find it anymore.sved2013-05-04 07:29:56
...but this is mostly psychological. Check my devlog
