Why not just use the GIMP? It's not quite as capable as PhotoShop, but it's pretty close (from what I hear at least, I'm not a PS expert or anything).

with VMWare you are actually installing windows inside linux so it will take much hard drive space. If you want to run Photoshop I recomend you use CrossOver
