Gimp 2.

I decided it was time I tried out Gimp properly. Gimp is a free open source photo editing software. It's pretty close to the older versions of Photoshop, although it being updated on a fairly regular basis, the version shown here is 2.6 (the latest at time of writing)
So how does it work, well it works very well, although I find it very slow compared to photoshop, it's also a lot more basic. Another issue is it's total lack of raw support, so no raw editing then.
That said it is FREE, and it does the job well, although a bit slower that it's £650 rival.
