For those of you who cannot fork out the dough for Photoshop try this http://www.gimp.org/.

The Gimp is a freely distributed graphic manipulation program. I find it very, very close to photoshop. It allows you to create layers and channels, and has what I think is a very useful "scissor selection tool" which makes selecting objects easier than the photoshop pen tool. The Gimp has a pen tool as well. There are also tutorials on the Gimp website to help you out with specific tasks.

If you can get the new CS3, it has a color replacement brush. Basically, all you have to do is select a color and start coloring. :)
