If you are looking for legitimate program to do some graphics and photo editing, and want a free one, this cannot be any better. I was just spending the weekend looking at the various options and was already about to put in an order for Corel Paintshop. Although that would be the latest version, and i am currently trying the trial first. I am going to get this CS2 free and see if it meets my basic needs. That will save me some bucks.
*UPDATES* It seems Adobe has disabled the link.
