    I've got Gimp for years now. I think it's more than 10 years now since I've used photoshop.
    Once you find your way in Gimp, you never look back, such an easy program, certainly with the latest version.

    For my RAW photos, I use Rawtherapee to convert.
    And for illustrating, I use Inkscape.
    The learning curve can be a little higher, but it does what it should do.
    I already done more complex stuff with it to create artwork for my music and other stuff.

    + when working on several machines, all 3 softwares are working cross platform (linux,windows,mac), free and open source. You can even install it portable on a usb flash drive.
    Or even when you work on a corporate computer from work without having admin rights to install software, you can just copy the usb-installed software to your computer and it works directly from there without the need to install as admin.
    Very sustainable on a long-life span, no more licenses to pay, ever.

    Ask here
    Just be careful if buying on line used that the prog is not a pirate copy or the past owner has still got the prog registered to their computer as to get licence keys for older versions is quite hard

    same here like what @Dikkie said above .. I use RawTherapee + Gimp (+ sometimes Hugin) and I wouldn't change that .. I have in my photobag a mac book mini for quick field edits with LR and PS there and I don't like it .. My wife is PRO graphic artist, for her is AI, PS and ID a daily bread so I have access to both programs and moreover I have her full support in using Adobe stuff .. bah, I am fine with what I am .. RawTherapee is certainly better than LR, and Gimp, well, it's 300% fine for my needs ..
