GIMP is a really helpful image manipulation program. One can practically edit any image format.
What I also like about this program is that it has a multi-windowed layout. It was difficult to handle at first since I was accustomed to the Photoshop interface but it's totally cool. It also has all of Elements' features like the layers, masks, channels, etc. There are also templates, brushes and other stuff that you can easily download from the internet. I also like that it has a more user-friendly feel with its not so formal look. It doesn't make me feel intimidated.
Have I mentioned that it's free? Yes, you read it right. It is readily downloadable and you don't have to spend a cent. Fabulous, right? I think I will continue using it from now on.
