What computer program?

I'd like to plan a new paint job for the LT over next winter. What program (preferably free) would work best to "repaint" my bike digitally?

I don't know what level of graphics expertise you have but if you want free, you can always download The Gimp .

Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. Not very expensive and does a lot with photos.

I second the vote for "The Gimp"

Available for almost any OS (including MAC and Windows) and you can do just about anything you could do with Photoshop.

....and thanks to Andy's previous recommendation I've got it for free, free, FREE! Great program and easy to use even for technophobes like me.
