GIMP is the most commonly-used
yum install gimp

How it compares to P-Shop? Well, it's tempting for me to say "Photoshop is better" but I don't have any experience with photoshop, so I'd be going by what the rumor is. When it comes down to it, I think the commonly-held mantra that "Photoshop is better than GIMP" is something a lot of people repeat without being qualified to comment; it's sort of a "mother's wisdom" deal amongst Linux users that few people bother to actually confirm.

Try it and see. There's definitely going to be a learning curve if you come from photoshop.

In any event, you should note that though the GIMP can be used to do much of the same stuff Photoshop can, the GIMP devs have strongly noted in the past that GIMP is not meant to be a FOSS clone of Photoshop.

(I don't mean to sound mean, but the answer to your question could have quite easily been found with a search engine.)

Well being an ex-photoshop user, I have to say that GIMP will handle the bulf of your photoprocessing needs. There are tons of addon filters and scripts available for it free. The interface is different and takes some getting used to, but it can be setup to approximate your photoshop standard layout. Also there are versions called GIMPshop that try and emulate photoshop more closely, but I never bothered to try it.

The wonderful thing about linux distros is that you can load your package manager, install it and play with it yourself to see how you like it. (pssst it's FOSS software).

Cool man enjoy. photoshop express is alright i still use gimp, if you find it rather hard to use there always the option of using wine and adobe. i think i remember reading something about photoshop works with wine on linux pretty well now http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?appId=17

About the nearest thing is Gimp. It should already be installed in your Applications menu under Graphics.

It depends on what level you use Photoshop. For professional grade stuff, some key features such as higher colour spaces are not going to work, as Gimp can currently do only 8 bit. CMYK is also not supported by Gimp as far as I know. If that is important to you, you are out of luck at the moment.

For general playing about with images and doing some effects, Gimp and Photoshop are very similar. All the basics are there, but some of the nice features in Photoshop are not in Gimp yet.

There is a good podcast about Gimp at http://meetthegimp.org/ Well worth downloading.

as Gimp can currently do only 8 bit. Try Cinepaint.

You can try on photoshop installed under wine, if you have a good machine and enough RAM.

What error? Perhaps start a new thread asking for help with WINE + Photoshop.

Or better yet try the WINE forums and the WINE appdb.

i have Gimp ( for 8bit/chan-RGB ) and cinepaint (8,16,32,128 bit/chan )
and Nip2 http://www.vips.ecs.soton.ac.uk/index.php?title=VIPS
every map in the link in my sig has been worked on it some way with The Gimp
I do have an old copy of photoshop on my windows xp drive , and a win build of The gimp .In windows i found i was using gimp 95 to 98 % of the time .
Cinepaint i use to import raw 16 bit files from the cam. then do some minor curve changes and save as a 8 bit rgb .png( 24bit) .Then i use gimp on them .
