Welcome Mercy,

I believe you will find Gimp & Linux to be a very big step forward in 
your graphics & operating system use.  Gimp has many plugins already 
that might suit your needs without looking for PSP types to add in.  I 
am not familar with that, so cannot assure you of that fact.  One of 
the more learned Gimpers here can probably help you more there.  Don't 
know what distribution of Linux you are running, but you may find a 
program or two that works much the same as your PSP, there are several 
for you to choose from there.  Gimp is more on the Photoshop level, so 
if you are familar with that, the transition should be much easier and 
if not, then there are a couple of good books on Gimp available from 
sources like Linux Central.

Your Linux distro should have included Grokking the Gimp, at least our 
SuSE Linux does.  I have seen someone else mention another good book 
also, but the name escapes me now.  Grokking can be called up just like 
any other program, there are tutorials and you can even print it out if 
you like or the book is available, if you don't want to do either of 
those!  Gook Luck on your quest!  :o)
