I have friends who use AutoCad and are always talking about scalable,
vector graphics. AutoCad also uses layers, but I've forgotten exactly
what the were.
AutoCad is a CAD program and uses vector graphics; MS Paint and GIMP are
bitmap graphics programs. If you what you want is bitmap graphics, GIMP
is an excellent choice, but if it's vector graphics you need, you should
check out Inkscape (http://www.inkscape.org) which uses SVG (scalable
vector graphics). GIFs are never scalable though; they only contain
bitmap graphics (well you can rescale everything of course, but the
quality will suffer).
