Yeah: any 2D editing software is fine, as long as it can create in .jpg format (I think every photo editor can do that).

Photoshop, Paint Shop, Gimp, Even MS paint will work fine, just as long as it can create .jpg files it will work.

There are no rules on what you use.  As long as Anim8or accepts the file type you can use whatever you want.  I personally use mostly photoshop, while others prefer other programs.  Really it's best to be creative and try new things out!  Even if others haven't done it that way before, it may work!
