What is a good software to edit and create custom control panel art?

Hello I’m looking to make up some cool looking control panel art and have a couple of good looking wallpaper which I plan to edit but I don’t know what is a good software to edit wallpapers and arts. Can someone suggest something?

something like photoshop is what I think you want.
It’s pretty popular and you can find art for panels and arcade stick art/templates easily as well.

Photoshop, Paintshop, and Gimp are all pretty good.

side note, i saw this on G4 a few months ago… http://aviary.com/

its a web based image manipulation app.

Good luck.

Thanks fellow gamers. I’m gonna try this web base one then try the others. Thanks again!
