GIMP (the GNU Image Manipulation Program)


I was with a customer yesterday and updating their machine to Mavericks, when I came upon a piece of open-source image-editing software called GIMP ( 


There is now a Mavericks-compatible version that runs natively without the need for X11 or XQuartz and is free to download, although donations and pledges are gratefully received.


I played about with GIMP for a little while and was really impressed by how easy and user-friendly it was.  It looks to be ideal for those users who need more than iPhoto can provide but can't really justify the expense of one of the more elaborate image manipulation packages. 


Has anyone had any experience of GIMP or any other interesting software that they would like to share?
