I saw a similar question asked, but mine is more precise in what I am looking for.
Is there any (free) software or free web based software I can use for the following purpose:
I want to be able to create images. I tried using pixlr and it's not as advanced as the software (or web based software) that I am looking for. I'm not talking about simply adding or modifying images with photoshop, which is fine for most things. But, I want to be able to easily create something from scratch.
I find software like photoshop impossible to deal with in terms of actually creating images. The reality is that it does not possess the advanced power that images created with other professional software offer (I would presume). I don't think I could achieve something as nice as this image using photoshop.
Basically, I am looking for a software that allows that possibility but that gives you the ease of doing so. For someone with limited knowledge of design.
I am not a Graphic Designer, I am a Web Integrator. The reality is that I need tools to facilitate professional design work. I'm not looking for opinions per se, but websites that offer either this type of software for download or directly have it in their web browser.
To be clearer upon what I am actually looking for, imagine the following: you see an ad beautifully created with professional graphic design software. I want to emulate that work of art that you see. Imagine this specific picture, clearly this is not a real person, but rather it has been created from scratch, with the background that surrounds him. That is the type of software I need to get my hands on. Worst comes to worst, a paid one (but I would rather avoid that).
