I'm curious as to which Graphics programs people use on Linux. Personally I've always tended to stick to Gimp, Inkscape and Blender.
What else are you using? This can include palette choosers or anything else you might think is useful
Thanks in advance for your feedback
Gimp, Inkscape, Cinepaint (old, unstable, terrible UI, but when you need ultra-wide gamut, there are none better), Xara Xtreme (fast), Agave (for simple colour matching), MyPaint (for kicks) and Alchemy (for lulz).
Mostly just use the first 3, though.

Point & Squirt
Inkscape, Gimp, Agave, Blender(with Blender, I'm still in the learning phase), Scribus for making PDF-z,
I'd took a try for XaraLX, but I think Inkscape is allmost equivalent with XaraLX
(the last I was care about Xara it was a year ago, so I don't know where the Xara project belongs at the moment)
Dell Studio 1537+#! Statler Alpha2 || http://taklertamas.deviantart.com/gallery/
I use mostly gimp, hugin occasionally too
I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may.
Gimp mostly. I also have Gcolor2 for picking out colors without needing to start Gimp.
BTW if you wish to contact me, send me an e-mail instead of a PM.
Here also mostly gimp and rawtherapee/ufraw for raw files, sometimes inkscape at work for some illustrations in reports
Photoshop CS2 via wine
just call me...
Tgif and the GIMP, but I use the former far more than the latter; I just use the GIMP to crop and add alpha.
I need to work on a schematic? Tgif. Chassis layout? Tgif. Cabinet plans? Tgif. It also prints out small, high-quality vector-based PDF's in case I need to share my work. You know those GPL'd schematics I made available recently? Tgif.
Granted, I have a rather narrow focus when it comes to graphic applications.

We've earned a reputation as a nice, friendly community; please help us keep it that way.
I mainly use Scribus, Gimp and some Inkscape. Since I work in printing, sometimes I use Krita to change an image from RGB to CMYK. I don't think Gimp has that yet, at least in the version I'm using.
I use Inkscape, Gimp and Blender 2.50 mostly. Though for raw conversions I use RawStudio (which rocks btw), and sometimes UFRaw. For colour scheme work I've been playing with the web tool at http://colorschemedesigner.com/ which is nice because it can export a Gimp palette which I then normally use as a palette in Inkscape.
I've completely given up on F-spot but have recently tried using Picasa3 under wine. As ugly as that sounds, it's about 400x better than F-spot even under wine. The face recognition capabilities are great for someone who's as lazy about tagging photos as I am. After not using it for a version or two, I was amazed (and a little bit scared as a FLOSS fan) at how far it has come as far as the casual photographer is concerned.
Also I've been playing with MyPaint and my wacom tablet
Under Qemu or Wine:
Photoshop 6 (I know it is old but, for simple stuff I usually use it... I like that it loads in 2 seconds)
Manga Studio Debut (I have Illustrator but, this is a better tool for what I am into)
Google Sketchup (I love how simple it is, works in Qemu WinXP but I have no luck in Wine)
GIMP (does everything I use photoshop for, if my image is not on a virtual drive I use GIMP)
DigiKam (has some editing capabilites)
Comix (The best thing since sliced bread if you like manga as much as I do)
I'd like to use Blender but, it just seems beyond me...

Been meaning to give this a spin
and what this have to do with the thread?
Pinta is a mono app
I love to make photography ; so I use a lot of apps for that :
- rapid-photo-downloader : for download from my Digital SLR.
- Mirage or Geenie : fast images viewers.
- jBrout : photo manager and renamer.
- ExifTools (terminal app) : to change name of RAW images like in jBrout.
- Phatch : Photo Batch Processor and Exif Renamer.
- Rawtherapee : RAW converter and digital photo processing.
- GIMP : don' t need to present !

My Fluidr (= Fickr) : http://www.fluidr.com/photos/kookadimi/sets
I've always done everything in GIMP. Show Flyers, web art, banners, merch designs, the whole nine yards. Besides that......
-Krita works for my needs. I haven'y used it much, but like it so far.
-Digikam for managing photos.
-showFoto simpler Digikam.
-Agave to snag colors.

GIMP (now that it's working again, thanks anonymous and zwopper!)
Scribus for layout stuff--I work on a small community publication.
Gcolor2 (I think that's the one that comes with#!) for easy color choosing (mostly via gedit)
Punch all your friends.
Ooh, what a great thread!
I use Inkscape (which I love) GIMP (which I appreciate) and have used Scribus (which looks good) and Blender (which I have great plans for!). I also get occasional use of Hugin (which is pretty slick). Once or twice I've had cause to use ImageMagick.
I've just started delving into FontForge as well. It's ugly as all sin, but I am super impressed with it so far!
Mostly though, thanks for this thread! I've already installed MyPaint, with Alchemy next on the list. I've been looking for OS painting apps!
I've been using Inkscape and MyPaint
I like Inkscape better than Gimp. Just me. Or maybe, the Inkscape Tutorial have made my brain understand Vectors.
And MyPaint is still a new Open source paint application, but very easy to use and a true paint, not art app.
Gimp + plugins, plugins, plugins!, Inkscape, Blender, Pencil, the occasional various fractal software.
and others besides.
i'd love to learn to code my own graphics tools.
Any animations online?
I only discovered Pencil recently... brilliant program
