I want to find a good FREE ( no money ) to use program for making good tile sets.
Aseprite is free if you take some time to build it from source: https://github.com/aseprite/aseprite/blob/master/INSTALL.md
I personally use Paint.NET and I like it a lot.
Pyxel is great for making tilesets.
Do you mean Pyxel Edit?
If so then yeah that's what I use and it's great for tiles, but OP specificaly wrote "FREE" in caps so I didn't suggest it.
Oh, I thought they had a free version. *shrug*
They do, but it's really old (v0.2.22): missing features, no animation, the old UI etc.
Full version is $9 (v0.4.8)
Piskel is free but not really for tilestes.
Pixel edit. Is worth the 9$
You could just use GIMP's pencil tool. But as far as I know, GIMP doesn't have any special features for checking how the tiles look when tiled, if that's what you're after.
I use MS Paint (the Windows Vista build), PhotoFiltre, or GIMP.
But, if you want a free tile set specific program, try Tile Studio.
Pyxel Edit isn't free but it looks really good and I'm willing to spend 9$ thanks for the replies
It does... under Filters > Map > Tile.
(EDIT: sorta, but it's featureless.)
There are lots of pyxel edit tutorials on you tube. Watch a few on tiles and see if it’s what you want first.
