    Really good 2D animation software?

    Hello! I'm pretty new to animation. I recently begun learning how to do traditional animation (with a light tracer and pegbar). My thing is, I can do the frames okay, but I'm having trouble on what to do next. I scan each separate frame and put it onto my computer. My question is, what do you guys think is a really good, simple 2D animation software to use? Basically, the only thing I'm looking for in the 2D animation software is to put my images together to form an animation, and clean them up. I realize I can do this in photoshop, but it seems rather complicated (not to mention expensive).

    Any suggestions would be great! Thanks in advance!

    Well I believe you need something like Photoshop to actually clean them up but for the rest you could try Monkeyjam. It's free pencil test software!

    The better software is expensive, like Flash, TVPaint and ToonBoom. Monkeyjam is pretty crappy, but basically does what you want, DigiCel Flipbook is also useful, and the Lite version is affordable. For cleanup, you can use any drawing program you're comfortable with.
