GIMP and Paint.NET are the two photoshop alternatives I've used - both are respectable tools and have a number of extensions and plugins.
GIMP is good once you master it, but there is a bit of a learning curve involved. Haven't tried Paint.NET. I think they were implying that u cn get a cracked version of photoshop relatively easy.
I agree with the rec. for GIMP tho, good program.
Inkscape is also nice.
