GIMP Isn't like photoshop. It doesn't even have the blending options that you can access in Photoshop. I dislike it, but then again like it to a degree. For those wanting to know the status of blending options among other photoshop-specific things: Go Here

How does Gimp compare to Paint.net? Can those two programs be compared or are they in a complete league of their own?

Yeah, and how did you pay for Photoshop? By downloading a cracked copy, I bet? Just like I have several times, although never have used the HUGE a** program.

TheGimp is an excellent FREE alternative.

I agree. Unfortunately there are people who sit there pressing F5 on the main page all day long waiting for a news article they can troll in.

Photoshop has become bloated junk and I wouldn't use it if I wasn't required to. At the end of the day though, if you know your tools it doesn't matter what you use as long as the work gets done.

Bloated? Hardly. Photoshop CS3 runs A LOT faster for me than CS1 or CS2 ever has. And I use Photoshop at work, so no cracked copy.

The interface is horrible. Photoshop all the way.

You never used Photoshop on a Mac, did you? It looks just like The GIMP there. What now?

I use it all the time on my PowerBook. They look nothing alike.

Gimp is mainly a Linux program which compiles on windows using cygwin.
GTK+ is your best choice for a toolkit on Linux.
Qt4 is supposedly good too although I am yet to try it.

Um, what? Gimp has windows binaries...

As for the rest, well, ...
