You'll have to use a program like Photoshop.

You open up the terrain.png and start recoloring the pixels to whatever you desire. It's actually pretty simple.

I used paintbrush for my texture pack.  It's easy to use for beginners and you can immediately jump into it. Where photoshop has a little learning curve to it.

What's so bad about GIMP? It is kind of a free version of photoshop, also paint.net is great as well.

Photoshop and Gimp can't really be compared, there is such a large gap in features to be honest =/

Also,  Paint.NET is absolutely horrible compared to either of the two. =(

If you use painterly not customize a texture pack, it is NOT creating a texture pack. It's taking someone else's textures and using them.

GIMP is your best free option for making one. There's not even a "quick" way to make a pack, it takes dedication and hard work, unless you want to come out with a piece of crap.

Unless you're looking to do some seriously crazy unnecessary effects to your work on the texture pack, I'm pretty sure GIMP and paint.NET would both be fine.

EDIT: I'd use paint.NET just because it's the simplest.

I use Photoshop because it has all the features I could ever ask for, and I am also a graphic designer, so I use it for many different purposes =3

Well yeah, if you're a graphic designer obv you'd want more features than just the simply cut/paste/draw/select.. I was just talking about making a texture pack in Minecraft.

The best way to learn how to use it is to simply toy around with it and learn it's settings. Online tutorials can be a blessing but it's up to you to really make stuff happen.

Yea, online tutorials are nice and all, but I learned best by just going through all of the features and when you hit a bump, just try everything you can =)

You learn things better via trial and error, instead of brainlessly watching tutorials =)
