Try Gimp. It has many of the same features as PS, but it's completely free.
I wouldn't say GIMP. I'd say GimpShop.

https://www.gimpshop.com/

I think it's a little more user friendly.

I just downloaded it, and my Norton anti-virus program said it was unsafe and deleted it.

That's very strange, Ironclad.

GimpShop is generally known to be safe. I've been using it for several years with no issues. My anti-virus has never picked up any problems with it.

I downloaded it from the link above.

I downloaded it again. It was Norton Insight that cancelled it, not Norton Anti-Virus.
So I overruled Norton Insight and might give it a try.

I tried it, it's EXACLTY the same as GIMP. Even down to the about page. And there's bundled software in the installer. I would NOT trust it.

Maybe it was the bundled software that displeased Norton.

Whoa, bundled software? That's new. I haven't tried Gimpshop in... uh... several years, but last time I did, it was just Gimpshop, nothing else.

I still don't understand how it's any different than regular GIMP.

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
GIMPshop modifies the menu structure to more closely resemble Photoshop and adjusts the program's terminology to match Adobe's. Due to the interface changes, many tutorials for the popular Photoshop can be followed in GIMPshop without modification, and others may be adapted for GIMPshop users with minimal effort. All of GIMP's own plugins (filters, brushes, etc.) remain available.

WP also quotes Gimpshop's creator, Scott Moschella, re: spyware and other crap:
Quote:
I originally created Gimpshop, but I'm not the jerk who owns that domain and added adware & spyware to the source. Sorry about that. I hate that this guy is out there making my fun little project into an abomination.
If you're going to get Gimpshop, it looks like SF.net is the best place to get it: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimpshop.mirror/ ...but the software hasn't been updated in 2 years.
