Default Decent Art/graphic suites

Hi my bro is starting out in web design/gfx design. He's been asking me for a simple (blond proof ) program, yet one full of features. Does any one know of a decent graphic suite, that you can create ur own designs/art easily. He mentioned he'd used one a while back that had stamps where u cud stamp leaf patterns etc onto the page lol. He cant remember which one it was. Hopefully someone out there has a brain (skipped my family) and can recommend a decent program please.

Cheers

The Tutorials can get boring and long wounded because a lot of the time your reading stuff that is like Pre school knowledge, but saying that there are a lot of good ones too...
