    hi really like making themes and backgrounds and all that jazz. I'm really quite good with fugu and know how to make everything about a theme. but..... i have a problem i am unable to make icons on my mac because the only program i know that i could use is gimp but in order to install it i have to have my x11 disc which i do not have. i was wondering if anyone knew a free photoshop/paint program like paint i could download off the internet. i would really appreciate this.

    You could always check if there's a Mac OS binary of the GIMP (Google it).

    Or XPaint
    Or GNU Paint

    They all compile properly on my Mac OS X 10.4 Powerbook G4.
