I put out a post before asking for help selecting a free program but as I did not get any concrete suggestions I will try again with different wording and hope for the best.

As a complete beginner and designing T-shirts and I would like to find out some of the better free T-shirt design software out there. Most of the free ones that I have looked at seem very complicated and I have found during my research on them that they are more for an advanced design which is not for me. What I would like is some kind of program that I can use with Amazons Merch program as I have been accepted as into their program.

Some of the programs that I like is Vectr & paint .net- I don’t know if there are others that are easy to use but maybe not as effective or advanced as one’s like gimp or ink space but will do the job for Merch’s designing T-shirts.

The main things I would like to do in my T-shirt designs are :
Edit text
3D text
import photos
Wrap text around an object
change the background color
as well as any other tasks that you can suggest.

As many of you know Amazons Merch program requires 15 x 18” - designs to be saved as .PNG – 300 dpi  & a resolution of 5,400 x 4,500 and a transparent background. (If any of this is wrong please let me know). I don’t really understand most of Merch’s requirements  so if anyone out there could please explain them to me and how I might be able to utilize them with another simpler program I would really appreciate it.

Thank you Craig

craig  I don't know what your background is but just jumping into design work like this is quite a big step. And yes adobe Il and photoshop are not free  gimp is. so start with it they have tutorials on line for it. And you can use the template provided. I would not use Photoshop for design of this type.  I've done this kind of stuff for over 30 yrs and I still don't know enough  done design for business and some colleges
So take some on line classes or something There is no easy way to do it
Good luck
