Gimp is not bad – mibollma Jul 13 '11 at 17:14
Are you asking also for an image library to build into your app? – Otra Jul 13 '11 at 17:16

Paint.NET may also be an alternative for you. I personally find it a bit simpler to use than Gimp however it may lack some of the super "power user" features.

Additionally, when I do artwork for some stuff I prefer to use vector graphics so I can resize without loss of detail. For this, if I need a free tool, I use Inkscape.

Paint.NET's simplicity is brilliant, Inkscape is great for SVG stuff, but I found it a little buggy on Win 7 when I was using it about 6-9 months ago. – leinad13 Jul 14 '11 at 16:14
