Free image editing tool

The program Photoshop, by Adobe, is widely considered one of the most powerful tools to edit images. The problem for most home users is that it is $650 for the basic edition. This cost rules out most home users buying this program.

Most people, when they get a digital camera, will get some sort of program to do image editing, but they are often very limited. In addition, Windows does come with a program called Paint. Paint is very limited as well.

However, for those of you who are interested in stepping up to a higher level of photo editing, there is a free program called GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation program). I've personally used this program since 1999, and it is right up there with the expensive programs in terms of flexibility.

Gimp takes too long.
