>What literature should I read to get into graphic design?
The sidebar on the /gd/ wiki has plenty of book reccomendations.
>What programs do I need to get started?
>Which program is the best for X?
It's usually subjective if you pick a program in each of the right categories above. Use vector programs if your making a logo/icon/illustraton, use bitmap programs if you're messing with a photo or stock image. Gimp, Inkskape, and Blender are free alternatives and have the same function as the paid programs but the paid programs tend to be used more in a professional enviroment.
