I edited this to make it a little clearer Hi my name is Tanner and I make some indie games and me and my friends have put together a team to make a freeware game website and we have been looking for a 2D artist(Still looking if interested PM me.)but can't find one who will do it for free so we need a relativly cheep program to make are sprites look at little more professional I guess I want them to look smooth and nice not ridged like pixel art so if any one has any suggestions please post them.(I'm not an artist so I don't know what a Bitmap or a Vector is I just need a easy program to use, if any one knows a program that's really good but a little pricey still post.) Thanks Tanner. [Edited by - thegamemaker777 on December 4, 2009 10:35:51 PM]

Gimp is a professional quality program, it even has an animation-preview function Photoshop lacks. I assume you mean bitmap/raster sprites? Because it's entirely possible to make vector sprites. But if you want professional-looking pixel art sprites and you can't make them in gimp the problem is the lack of art skills, not the program.

Personally, I like ProMotion by Cosmigo. It's not free, but its pretty nice, and its (at least spiritual) pedegree stems from DeluxePaint, which was very popular in the time of 2D games.

There's also GraphicsGale and Pixel, but I haven't used either of those.

Now that I think about it the error message that comes up says this in not a valid Win32 application nothing about the 64 bit thing but I still don't know what that means.
