This is mostly just to see what everyone is using these days and what is prefered. This is including but not limited to free photo editing, animation creation, and 3D sculpting software. Whatever you feel is worth mentioning and have had the best experiences with.

What are your favorites? What aren't your favorites?

Hope I put this in the right place...I figured since most people that use this fourm are designers of some sort this would be the best place to ask for opinions.

Gimp is a nice free tool for arranging photos and shtuff, and Easy Paint Tool Sai is wonderful for painting, although it only has a free trial :(

3ds Max with free student licence for meshes, some basic texturing and animations, zbrush for sculpting (you can use what you create in 3ds Max on zbrush and vice versa) and photoshop, UVLayout and GIMP for photo editing, drawing, etc.

I'd say that photoshop for most EVERYTHING which doesn't have to be with 3D of course. Photomanipulations, colouring, drawing, retouching,etc.

But, for lineart and painting I really prefer SAI Easy paint Tool, it's free and a very useful tool, it works quickly and has no problems. And the most important thing, I've found that the drawing tool to reduce the movement and the blending tool are so good and even better than photoshop on painting anime, manga, etc. But it's a pretty simple program though.

So, what I do is, use SAI for normal drawings and edit and add final touches with PS. I use PS for everything else. I've tried Manga Studio and Gimp and well, Gimp was simply a mess for me, I hated it till the moment I opened that messy thingie xD I guess that I'm too used to photoshop but I have to say that it's a pretty useful tool and the most important thing, works in Linux! And about Manga Studio... well, it works amazingly well with big sizes and resolutions but unless you're look for HUGE linearts and when I say HUGE I really mean big as hell xDit isn't worthy I've found, sooner or later you'll need photoshop for something and then it'll explode with that holly canvas xD
And if you don't need that big resolution, then you can find the same tools and effects and even more in PS.

Oh and graphics tablet *-*
