okay i actually need to replace illstrator and photoshop with something free, and while yes i could pirate adobe's stuff i actually hate the current versions of their stuff and want something better/different in my life now.

suggestions and boosts welcome. maybe even something that works on Linux??

@matt @June Hi, I'm using Krita for peppercarrot.com/ and Inkscape. Both are multi-platform and Free/Libre and Open-Source (they are run by non-profit org, based on donation and code is open to volunteer).

I also share my Linux install receipe here: davidrevoy.com/article783/kubu

Good luck −I was a Photoshop teacher 10years ago− and switching to another tool often mean doing many compromises. I hope you'll find features attractive enough on alternatives to ease adaptation and make it fun.
