Default ARG!!! Need image editing software

I'm trying to use GIMP and Inkscape to do some text effects, neither one am I able to do anything with quickly. Inkscape can do incredible things, but it's HAARRDDD.

I need ez-mode that doesn't cost much or cost anything. Simple simple text like having the fat outline color and an inset color, and a simple gradient across it or something. Coreldraw was easy back in high school (ancient times), but I don't have it.

Kevin,
I can't remember who shared it few days ago but http://pixlr.com/ is an excellent image editing program and its free too. Just go to that website and it's a firefox plugin...install it with the browser, you're set.

Hey, thanks guys.

It seems pretty easy to use so far. But, I want some "easy" text effects. Can it do that? I haven't seen how yet. Even the most simple effect like having a thick oversize outline, or fill the text with a color gradient or texture.

The tiny little artist inside me is frustrated at being unable to express himself. Heheh.

Hey i'm in the same boat. The problem is that we don't know how to use the tools we have...... Just bang stuff out and do your best. You'll figure out more stuff along the way....... I had zero design experience a week ago and now i'm able to bang out landing pages like nobody's business. And I enjoy doing it......
