One of the things that has stopped many people migrating from Windows to Linux over the years is the lack of native applications like Adobe Photoshop.
Despite it's age Adobe Photoshop 7 is still an excellent application for design. It installs and works through Wine without any issues. I also believe Adobe Photoshop CS is the same, however if you don't physically own these disks and you cannot afford a subscription to Adobe your next alternative on Linux is to use GIMP.
If your a long time Adobe Photoshop user like myself, you have probably tried GIMP in the past and found it frustrating to use, however I always try to keep in my mind the amount of work that has gone in to GIMP over the years, and the fact this is another piece of software you never have to pay for so try to stick with it. I don't think I could ever replace Adobe Photoshop, however it's good to know how to use GIMP.
With this in mind, I wanted to provide a quick tutorial to new users on how to create a simple banner using GIMP. This isn't a masterpiece, and is intended in helping you to get going.
If you don't have GIMP installed on Ubuntu, or your Ubuntu based distribution open the terminal and enter the following command
