Pixel: Photoshop for the Linux Crowd

Linux users unhappy with the GIMP image editor may want to take a look at Pixel, a cross platform image editing application, which more closely mirrors the behavior of Adobe Photoshop. Although Pixel isn't free in either sense of the word — a licensed copy will set you back $38 USD and the source is not available — in terms of ease-of-use Pixel trumps the Gimp on a number of levels.

Where the GIMP’s palettes are each separate application windows, Pixel opts for a unified interface similar to that of Photoshop, eliminating the confusion of palettes showing up in your taskbar or app switcher.
