Here is a good list of alternative open source programs that work as alternatives to Adobe Photoshop pixel graphic editor.

There is also a nifty online image editor site called Sumo Paint: http://www.sumopaint.com/home/

Core image is excellent. I'm surprised more business-type programs do not use it.

The GIMP can be invaluable for those occasions when you just need something locally installed but don't want to splurge for Photoshop. We talked about GIMP and the other editors in this article on Episode 23 of the Talentopoly Podcast.

I was using GIMP, but then it started to crash on me, so I'm back to Sumo Paint and loving it. I made two buttons using Sumo Paint. This online photoshop-like program is smooth and has some unique effects. - I have an account here: sarahmac.sumopaint.com

I've bee using Sumo Paint off and on for the last two years and think it's great. I wouldn't trade in Photoshop for it. But when I'm not at my laptop it's not a bad replacement.

@Jared, did you know that Sumo Paint has a Remix feature that allows users to edit images created by others users. Users can give or not give permission for others to remix their artwork. Sounds like Dribbble, but better because Sumo Paint is not exclusive.

I remixed a user's gecko:http://www.photosnack.com/slideshows/d5fea58250f9f8703066c6e0a2667193

That's a cool feature. Though your link didn't work for me.
