I know there are free programs out there for this kind of thing.

what I need is a program with which I can do just simple picture editing/creation, beyond the really simple capabilities of MS paint or (*shudder*) Apple Works. The kind of things I'm looking to do are along the lines of placing "no" signs over things, making the white transparent, or just overlapping images in a visually appealing way in general.

What do you guys think of Gimp?

Wow, I've been here for a while.
