Does anybody know any free alternatives for adobe photoshop? Please reply asap. I tried GIMP and GIMPShop but they are not so good.

    I'm afraid the GIMP is the alternative.

    Is's not that, as you say, GIMP "not so good", rather it is a bit difficult to learn (as is PhotoShop). In fact, GIMPShop more closely emulates the PhotoShop interface than GIMP.

    May I suggest Paint.NET (also free) which has a subset of the functions that you find in Photoshop and GIMP).

    I found Gimp has a large learning curve and often times quite difficult to use.
    What did you need specifically David.
    As suggested I also like Paint dot net the best for quick work, has some good stuff but not quite enough to  cover professional details.
     INKSCAPE is a true alternative to Adobe Illustrator  , vector graphics tool. And can be used with Adobe.
    Guides  linked on the side panel
    Youtube has tons of tutorials there as well.
    Like these

    If you get stuck with any of these including Gimp you can always come here to EE for help
