Looking for software for a 32bit computer


I am currently using a 32 bit computer and I would like to know what free software is out there for texturing 3d figures and objects? I know there is GIMP but what else is out there?

I remember Photoshop CS3 was 32bit, with 64bit support. Don't know about later versions.

Clip Studio Paint (formerly Manga Studio) supports 32bit. It's an excellent cheap tool for drawing and texturing. Highly underrated!

Autodesk Sketchbook Pro is also 32bit compatible. It's nice for drawing, but I wouldn't recommend it for texturing. Check out the demo version for free and see what you think.

PD Howler has a free version that is older but fully functional. And DAZ has sales on some of the newer versions from time to time, making them really cheap ($4 or so). It's what I use for everything not rendered!

There is Karita and Paint, but I don't know much about them.

I agree with Bonnie. I haven't updated my Photoshop since CS2, and I can't think of anything I can't do with it, and if you have CS6, you might even have some options not available in older versions of PS.
