in need of a good texture creator

hi everyone. i am working on a project and i am in need of a texture creator similar to Genetica. I have a very small budget so i am looking for one that is free or relatively inexpensive ($50>). I have tried Photoshop and Gimp but i’m not too good with them.

any help is appreciated

thanks in advance

There’s MapZone, but the link seems to be down at the moment.

You might consider Texture Studio. Easy to use, lots of control, and free.
