Here's my best advice on which program to use and how and,...
Go on Google on find the program named: GIMP.
It's totally free, it's a little (I mean it) bit harder then PhotoShop, but it's giving better result.
You must do some tutorials of GIMP, which you can find on Google easily, before being really good with it.

But for people who don't know how to start, go download GIMP Surprised

All things like gimp, flash, photoshop, ect. all need experimenting. Try and fail until you get something.

Errrrrrrr
no
Photoshop is the number 1 image editing program in the world for a reason, while gimp is free, and has good stuff, photoshop will forever be better.
For sprite animating i recommend using Fireworks for the simple stuff like copying and pasting, and taking off the BG. Anything advanced try to learn photoshop but if you don't wanna go through the trouble of GETTING or learning PS because PS is actually the harder program, then id recommend gimp.

I WON'T TAKE IT! Gimp is better in the effects it bring.
There's a diffence between Gimp and Ps learning.
Here's a schema:
Leargning: Beginniner - Inter - Pro
Program;
GIMP(#1) : No Yes Yes
PhotoChop: Yes Yes Yes

So, you cant learn Ps easier than GIMP, but after practicing both worth the same thing.
Except the fact that photochop cost money ^^.

That's because PHOTOSHOP (not photoCHOP) doesn't bring everything premade like gimp, in photoshop you have to create most of the things yourself, this is way more of an advantage because you're not limited to what GIMP gives you you're limited to your imagination. Gimp is free and easier, as well as it has a lot less and can do a lot less. I've seen professional attempts at both gimp and photoshop and PS always came out better.
Gimp can't make fat girls look hot as well as PS can.

That's true, but in case spriting and,... You know games, GIMP do enough the job.
GIMP doesn't deny that PS is better.
But as programming language or anything on world: Put on the same base, every need have his solution Cool

No offense, but Eric's right. Photoshop is far superior to GIMP. The MAIN issue between the two is how expensive Photoshop is while GIMP is free, which is bullcrap. Because if you do the research and the GOOGLING, you can find ways of downloading Photoshop for free, just like Macromedia Flash 8 Pro(Got it for free) <_< No viruses, no charges, no fees, no trials.

I've just talked with my informatic teacher and he said that GIMP is quite superiour and only with one reason: it's an Open-Source. You can download new effects and even edit them as you want. So, you can create your own effects and waste time on it on PS, but with GIMP you got a full library of editable effects ^^
For that reason, GIMP is better.

Btw Eric, it's not because you've bought those program (PS) that the other ones like GIMP are bad Cool

So what. In the rules it says to not talk about that. If you can get GIMP to allow you to give us a direct link, shoot ahead.

Now where did i say Gimp was bad? And how would you know what i bought or not
And also your teacher must have not used PS because you can also download new effects and brushes etc to PS.
Also in PS it's all your talent not the talent of the program, if you wanna be lazy and just take a premade effect and call it your own fine. But i like the complete freedom of PS, making it your own no matter what, starting out fresh it takes a lot more skill and the out come is as good as your imagination, not what you're limited to in downloads with gimp. Gimp is quick and primitive, takes a lot less talent and you are more limited.

I respect that and I like the Xbox360 Vs. Ps3 allusion.
PS my teachers used PS a long time since he knew GIMP.
And, btw, PS cannot be updated, GIMP yes, this is what I meant, my teacher say it, my friends say it,... Everyone except you.

PS can't be updated...?
Lol so............how did it get from CS to CS5 o.0
That's not updating at all now is it..

Gimp has it's advantages but Photoshop has MANY many more. and if you want a program that destroys them all theres After Effects.

No need to even Explain it. lol
But hey, everyone's entitled to their own opinions. So if you believe Gimps better by all means think that.
But Photoshop is alot better to actually compare the two you need to be really good with both.

It can be updated but ill let you take a wild guess why they don't make it so you just upgrade.

Anyway, I dont know why again there's a debate between PS and GIMP when the main idea of this forum was to introduce people to animation/graphism.
Let's argue when there's a debate question >.>
