It would be helpful to the other members, to report back in this thread on whether they are worth the price or a waste of time by posting a brief synopsis or even a picture you worked on with one of these freebies

Beside's GIMP, I've not tried any of the other freebies, but I can vouch for the GIMP. It is my main editor of choice.

Gimp?

I've heard it's powerful but difficult to install?

Re: Free Photo Editors and Free Painting Software

It use to be, but, since the are now including both gtk+ and the GIMP into a single install, it's quite easy now. The extras are challenging though. To get Photoshop compatible filters to work, you need to get the separate PSPI plugin and place it where needed (the instructions are easy; no need to repeat here). Learning curve is like any other editor of this complexity (heck; I'm still learning). Still worth the download and you just can't beat the price.

Re: Free Photo Editors and Free Painting Software

there is also Gimpshop, which is the gimp supposedly made to work and act pretty much exactly like photoshop. i tried it out when it first came out, but i didnt have photohsop back then so couldnt really compare.

Re: Free Photo Editors and Free Painting Software

The GIMPShop concept seemed to die after a single release. I was kind of hoping they'd keep it up. Maybe GIMP purists didn't appreciate it; I recall some sort of controversy (separate from the GIMP binary packaging for Mac drama).
