I am reasonably experience developer on photoshop and it has spoiled me to no extent. I am searching for a graphic tool on fedora which is simple to generate images that I would like to use on my android apps. I have tried my hand with Gimp and it seems to have huge learning curve. Is there any photoshop like app in Fedora which can help ?

The GIMP pretty much is the 'PhotoShop-like app for Linux' – DA01 Apr 4 '12 at 21:31

First of all, congratulations on using Fedora, it's amazing.

You can always install plugins for Gimp to imitate certain photoshop behaviours.

Check this article: You can for example install Layer Styles (Layer Effects GIMP plug-in from, CMYK Color Separation, Liquid Rescale, and brushes, among others.

The Gimp doesn't have a huge learning curve.

Also, try Inkscape. My girlfriend uses Inkscape and Gimp (on Debian) and this is what she does with them.
