Hello. I am using Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit operating system.

Are there any great Linux Ubuntu compatible v.11.10 64-bit high end or highly functional, feature loaded, high quality photo editing programs besides GIMP or Google's Picasa that you can recommend or suggest? In addition, this photo editing program doesn't mandate or require significant or constant referencing an online/downloaded file/hard copy manual or guide (meaning 'fairly' intuitive to use)?

Please provide me the program name and the webpage (preferably' the author's home website for the program). Let me know if it is available on the Ubuntu Software Center, and if not; where the reliable and reputable program/program package is available for download or online instructions for manual installation through Terminal using apt-get or alike. Please make sure there are 'good' instructions for installation procedures.      

Please reply.

Thank you!

"Highly fuctional, feature loaded" programs usually cost money. All mine do (and because I value them as worth it). So that said, here is a link for Adobe Photoshop on Ubuntu using Wine.

@ thinkspad_user:

Hello. Nice to meet you thinkpads_user!

Thank you for your prompt comment.

Now, I have to say your comment is very nice! Thank you! I DO have Photoshop Elements 10 for my Windows 7 64-bit. I appreciate your link to add to to WinE. I am so curious now how such a complicated program code would work with WinE and ultimately the Linux Ubuntu platform. Interesting. Something to try.

What I was wondering in terms of the 'many' programs/program packages for Linux/Debian/Ubuntu, and especially through the Ubuntu Software Center if they have a 'really good one' for free through its repositories? I am sure when it comes to photo editing programs/program packages and Linux/Debian/Ubuntu, there has to be MANY out there?

Sorry if I didn't get any more specific. I understand your rationale to my initial posting at top.

Reply if you wish.

Thank you!

I have seen Gimp and Picasa but other than Adobe, I don't know of any more powerful, yet native Linux applications.

Perhaps some others will have some ideas. Most really advanced applications must be paid for in order to provide support and further development. I don't know of any.

@ thinkpads_user:

Hello again. Okay, time to close this question/thread. I see at this point, that no one plans on commenting. I guess no one else has any more suggestions.

However, because of the true fact that your comment that Photoshop meets my " 'Highly functional, feature loaded' programs" and your provide me a means to use WinE in order to use it (which I yet have to actually test for the level of functionality and features of my Photoshop Elements with WinE), so it does 'fit the bill'. I am awarding you the Accepted Solution and the full 500 points since no one else commented.

Again, thank you!

Thank you very much, and I was pleased to assist.  I have an Ubuntu Virtual Machine and most of the free apps are OK, but they do not compare to the heavy duty paid apps, which is why I responded the way I did. Thanks again. ... Thinkpads_User
