GIMP is free to use to create commercial artwork.  There is no cost to
use it.  Some vendors might attempt to sell you a CD with GIMP on it.
This is not illegal, technically, but there is no reason you should pay
for it.  You can get GIMP free for use on Linux/Unix, Windows and Macs.
If you're not sure where to get it, feel free to ask here.  Please
mention the operating system you will use with GIMP.

The GIMP license (known as the GPL) is more importantly attached to the
program itself and how it can be redistributed.  The license is designed
to make sure everyone has free access to the actual source code if they
want it.
