    Is there an Adobe Photoshop CS4 equivalent out there? If not, how well does it run in WINE?

    I'm thinking of ditching this desktop (including HUGE CRT 'boulder') for a nice laptop, wiping it clean, and slapping Ubuntu on there. But I can't do my work without Photoshop.

    Nearest thing to Photoshop is GIMP. http://www.gimp.org/ Its not as feature packed as Photoshop, but very capable.
    There is gimpshop which emulates the photoshop layout and terminology, or you can look for the Deweirdifier plugin which does the single interface layout (without terminology changes).

    Cheers, Nick

    Thanks Nick.

    Although, I could argue that anything I do in GIMP, I can do in half the time using Photoshop. I guess it wouldn't hurt to adapt or learn to like it right? I'll look into that Gimpshop too, the multi-window interface gets to me sometimes.

    Those tutorials will help a lot. I'm going to try and stick to using GIMP over the next few months, and see if I can get adjusted to it. Thanks again!
