Alternative to Photoshop or Paint.NET

Hello. I am working in Ubuntu. I want to do some editing and drawing. On Windows I was using Adobe PhotoShop like software. Now I want to know which are the software available for doing this. Also, is there any default software for drawing an image?


Gimp or GNU Image Manipulation Program is the best alternative for photoshop in linux.

Krita (no longer a part of koffice) is also good:
