You can make an emission map in GIMP the same way you make it in Photoshop - the RGB channels control the color and intensity of the glow while the alpha channel (transparency) controls the speed of the flashing. You just need the dds plugin for GIMP. You could also use Paint.net which is free and supports DDS natively.

I'm considering writing one myself if I can get my glowing shoes working right.
