    GIMP is a free image software that's pretty popular. I don't use it, and know nothing about it, but I thought I'd get the ball rolling. :D

    Photoshop Elements could be called Photoshop "Lite"...it's much cheaper but does just about everything you might need for editing photos. It's even more user friendly, IMO.

    I think they call GIMP "free photoshop" or something of the sorts. I use it and its very good for what I do, which is just image editing.

    I ordered the educational version of CS2 from B&H (same software.) It was $299. If that is within your budget, it is the way to go. CS2 is really very good.

    I don't know if you can process raw images with GIMP, but Rawshooter Essentials will, and it's free.

    I've used both GIMP and Photoshop Elements 4.0, which is $100.

    I can say that in my opinion, PS Elements is far, far, above and away better than GIMP. I started out with GIMP too, but when I felt like I had the money to spend, I bought PS Elements, and I'm glad I did.

    Before making the jump to CS2, I used Paint Shop Pro for years and years...since way back in its shareware days.

    I couldn't quite handle the full version price of PS so I purchased a previous (and legal!) version of Photoshop on eBay...v6...then bought the upgrade version of CS2 for $149...which is now $169. Saved myself about $400 or so.
