What do you guys use to make your banners and icons etc etc?
I assume photoshop, but are there any other nice programs that are popular?

I don't think PSPro is free. Gimp is, but you get exactly what you pay for. plain

Despite Gimp not having some of the 'great' features of other programs, I think it's one of the best.

PhotoShop and Illustrator. Since my employer upgraded my software to CS4 Design Premium, I might mess around with Fireworks too but, the last time I used that program was years ago when Macromedia still owned it and all I ever used it for was batch processing images to web formats.

Photoshop. I'm more of a photographer though so I actually use Adobe Lightroom a lot more often.

Depending on if I am on my home computer, or in a lab somewhere, I use what is available. I have actually done some touch up work with just using paint. /snicker. But that is far from very useful.
I find that the often best work has been done with a number of different tools. I am far from a professional, but some of my favorites are PS, Illustrator, ulead and flash fx.
