Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Sure...it's called The GIMP or something to that effect. I haven't used it much, but it's comparable to Adobe Photoshop (and can even utilize some of it's plugins). Do a google search for it, I'm sure you'll find something related to it...
Are you sure it's not already installed on your system?
Originally posted by Matir The GIMP is by far a more powerful piece of software than Paint Shop Pro (which I use at work from time to time). That being said, it does have a STEEP learning curve, which I am still at the base of.
Yes, I have to agree, GIMP is by far superior to Paint Shop Pro...and was it mentioned already, it's FREE?!
Also, it does have a steep learning curve, but once you get a hold of it, you're pretty much set. If you're familiar with what photoshop is capable of, then you can do it in GIMP, just need to figure out HOW since there are many logistical differences in how the GUI is set up... It definitely takes some getting used to, but a VERY powerful tool nonetheless.
tutorials, mailing list, tips, program, etc., is all there for you, considering that you'll realize how superior is the Gimp. It's always difficult to start but once you pass a certain minimum level (learning curve) you'd never want to come back. Be clever, use Gimp.
I had both Gimp and Photoshop on my windows machine before I switched to linux. Personaly They are practically the same things. But I like gimp shop better because the layout is much easier and the setup is easier.
