For image editing, GIMP seems to be the best free option.

Google for tutorials on making textures, you'll get hunreds.

Alternatively, you'll save yourself a lot of time if you use free textures.

I recommend "Resynthesizer" plugin for Gimp.

It does things that not a lot else can do - maybe there are some commercial apps which know how to do this, but I don't have any.

Well set up digital photographs can help. Try to light the subject evenly and have the camera exactly perpendicular.

well since my first attempt at a business failed (selling really good textures i have made) i am thinkming of just releasing them for free. if anyone knows of a free hosting place where i could host them please tell (don't get too excited, i still have to run it by my business partner to see if this is fine).

Texture Maker

texture maker is one of the worst programs i've ever used. i first started out making textures with that program and and then moved to photoshop and was amazed...
i think gimp is better than texture maker, aviod at all cost.

Thanks friends,
The GIMP program is very good,do you know any program like this and 'Texture Maker' ?
I want a program that process border of textures and adjust the edge of texture.

well texture maker will do that for you but since it doesn't have an artist's touch everything it produces looks repetitive (even before tileing). i believe gimp has a plugin for seamless tiles, however if gimp (never messed with it too much since i has photoshop) if it has an offset filter you can basically say offset to the right 20 then patch up the seams then offset it back to the left 20 (to put it back) then offset it left one more time 20 then fix the seams... then do the same for all sides and it will be seamless. remove any object/part from the texture that may be brighter than other sections or may stand out. and the you'll have a good texture, there is still more to it but this will get what you want done.
