Nope! Then you have faulty parallel structure. I teach SAT English, and that sentence would not have been "correct as written." :P

Actually, it is possible to interpret that as a grammatically correct sentence listing two things “you do need”:

But you do need (to know how to crop, resize, and adjust images so that they work on the site), and (working knowledge of open source image editors like Gimp or Seashore).

It’s not even a garden path really.

"But you do need to know how to crop, resize, and adjust images so that they work on the site, and working knowledge of open source image editors like Gimp or Seashore."

I think you left out "have a" before working knowledge. As it is, you have a conjunction connecting a verbal phrase to an independent clause, which is wrong in two ways.
