    Pixel is another Photoshop like image editing software. It has most of the features of PS and you can also do some basic animation just like in ImageReady. Since the interface is similar to photoshop, getting used to it is simple.
    Whats more it can run on Linux, MacOS, FreeBSD and many other OS.

    And the final release price is just set at $79! that is approx. $400-500 less than PSCS2.

    I suggest you won't try the beta version until the stable ver. is released.

    Even I tried the Beta Its more like a Alpha version very unstable, eg If I maximize window its contents vanish and the prog wont even close.

    I don't think an application developed by a single developer can even touch Photoshop...forget about killing it. Applications like these will never be good enough for serious graphic designers and for home users there are various free alternatives available.

    Let's see. Adobe will seriously consider reducing the price of PhotoShop CS2 if Pixel
    is as good as PhotoShop!!! PhotoShop is the defacto standard for Image-editing
    software.

    I agree with this. Nobody wants to use any other alternatives. This name(and s/w too) has so much 'power'.
    Still time will decide the 'fate'. When its stable version is released i will be eager to use it.

    Heres the link for download

    But I recommend don't download the beta version. See their forum page. The beta has lots of bugs.
    Either wait for official release or till then use Photoshop! :p

    Its so easy to use word like Photoshop Killer. And then there was none. Lots of similar software had come and gone but then there were none who could give it a fight ..
    Word potential is too ambigious and uncertain. I think by the time people can come up to standards of photoshop with n numer of plugins Adobe PS already will have another version ready.

    if someone can buy imaging software, they can opt for photoshop, and someone who can't, they can opt for photoshop. see what i mean?
    no market for pixel...
