    Which photo editing software do you use to add spice to your digital photographs? I use GIMP and love it. I like using GIMP to create banners, avatars and other things using my photographs.

    Lightroom and Photoshop. I have Topaz Labs', Nik Software's, and OnOne's plug-ins too, all of which I find invaluable.

    Lightroom and Photoshop for me as well. I could never get much out of the gimp's impenetrable interface...took me forever to do anything!

    If you have PS, don't bother with GIMP. You get more with PS. ;)

    Lightroom 2, Photoshop CS4 Extended, Noiseware Pro (Imagenomic), Photomatix Pro (hdrSoft), Color Efex Pro (Nik Software), GML Matting, Topaz Adjust and Detail, and numerous plug-ins and actions.

    I have more but most are specialty apps.

    Gimp and Irfanview (IVIew). Gimp has been able to do everything I've done in my years with Photoshop, but it's free. There are plugins that make it more like photoshop, but IMNSHO, the learning curve for Gimp is easy for Photoshop users.

    I use picasa and picnik for now but I have been trying to teach myself Photoshop. I have several books and several videos yet I still find (Photoshop) very intimidating! Any suggestions for overcoming learning curve issues?
