Well I've always wanted a Tablet PC, and after trying a few here and there like the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Motorola Xoom, etc: none of them really stack to the iPad 2. (I think the TouchPad might have a shot, but we'll see how that works - http://www.palm.com/us/products/pads/touchpad/index.html)
So anyway I'm a huge graphics designer, as well as a web developer, and before I invest in getting my very own iPad 2 I was looking around for some good designing applications via PhotoShop Alternatives like Gimp for the desktop for example, and all I found was this article on Wired.com (http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/04/adobe-ipad-apps-photoshop-cs5/) and well lets face it if you're a big designer this sucks, especially if you do all around designing like I do from digital painting, web designing, vector art, etc:
So I can't seem to find anything that really stands out, and be good for me as a designing other then using Sumo Paint (aka Closest Web Based Alternative to PS) url = http://sumopaint.com/app/
So besides using Sumo Paint does anyone know of a good PhotoShop alternative for the iPad??? (No I'm not investing into the Asus Eee Slate even though it supports wacom, because I hate windows, and the operating system isn't optimized for the hardware)

Instead of getting a iPad or a tablet get something that is designed for digital design.
http://www.wacom.com/en/Products/BambooTablets.aspx (These are the ones without a screen)
http://www.wacom.com/en/Products/InteractiveDisplays.aspx (These are the ones with the screens)
I have used both before and the Interactive Displays might be more expensive they are well worth it if you are into design.

I can't find a SINGLE app for iPad or iPhone that will allow you to load two images, and then cut/paste between the two. I've been searching for days now. Is this rocket science?
Here's my real world requirement for iPad/iPhone:
load img1.jpg load img2.jpg select rectangular area from img1.jpg copy & paste to img2.jpg move (and perhaps size) pasted selection around in img2.jpg confirm and save img2.jpg
BTW - thanks for the SumoPaint link - awesome tool!
Edit: sorry this is a new question, not an answer.
Why would you even try to do design work on a tablet? That's like paying for someone to punch you in the face. Besides, with the slate, (theoretically) you could attach an external cd drive to it via the USB ports and install whichever OS you want.
