What is good beginner level graphic design program

I'm looking for something a little more advanced than Paint but I don't think I have the skills for Photoshop. Is there a happy medium?

Gimp is one of the coolest programs that is somehow hidden behind one of the world's worst interfaces. It is completely backwards and counter-intuitive and that's why it doesn't get any traction among anyone in the design community.

But... it is free and it is powerful if you don't mind the steep learning curve.

Photoshop is technically not a "graphic design" program. You'd need something like the old Freehand app or Illustrator (or Corel Draw) to complement it.

I've always liked NeoPaint. While it may lack some of the more powerful features with other programs, it's quite easy to use.

Here's a link to some freeware recommendations, with Paint.net being cited as easy to use:

i use The Gimp...

gimptalk is one poorly administrated forum... great for helpful info and tutorials though, when its actually running...

lots of gimp tutorials on youtube...

oh yeah... heres the Link to the Gimp for Windows...

here is a great site for brushes... Link...

get the Ghostscript running and you can open and edit photoshop files or PDF's or the like.... and use photoshop plugins and add-ons...

get your windows rich in fonts, for use in the Gimp, at a site like this one... Link...

GIMP is a good program but its creators really do need to give it a new name.

it does really stand for something, but everyone thinks something else

my company once paid some company a lot of money to make a new logo and a new company name. some of us creative people got a headstart on it before the official announcement by visiting the trademark and copyright office website. as soon as word spread, the sexual jokes started. next thing you know they scrapped the new name and the old name stayed

True, but it's not very intuitive to use.

For simple graphic design software for beginners... Umm... One of Corel's Paint Shop or Ulead Photosmart.
