SphereDesigner is a plug-in for The GIMP, which can be used to create nice looking, textured spheres. The ones on the top of this page are all created with it.
The SphereDesigner plugin is now ready for pre-beta-testing. It is _not_ to be considered stable at all, and is currently under heavy development.
For the cutting edge version, the GIMP CVS tree is probably the best choice, but I'll try to make regular updates here, as well.
