What is Adobe Kuler? I am sure all of those are useful, but if you are just starting out you can probably manage with a lot less. For a while for me, it was enough to deal just with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator and that was it.

One important tool that hasn't been mentioned is pen and paper. I like how effortless ideas can flow onto paper. Sketching is like visual brainstorming and I think it's very important to the graphic design process.

The software I use the most is Photoshop and Illustrator, but of course I use many others already mentioned here.

Well, a good list of softwares but I use Photoshop and Illustrator the most, I'm surprised that program hasn't been added into the main list, and pen and paper is also vital, since you don't need a PC to do it and you can do it just about anywhere.

Well the main list mentions the Adobe Creative Suit and Illustrator is a part of that. But yea I think it would be better to list the individual programs because some Adobe programs are of no use to graphic designers (the video and sound programs). But since now they are all in the Creative Cloud you will pay the same price no matter how many of their programs you use.

Tools mentioned are probably essential for a graphic designer but not absolutely necessary to create a graphic design. There are times that I just need Photoshop to create designs.
