Out of the free photo editing software , GIMP is the best . It is almost as good as photoshop, but a bit hard to use . The free programs works like photoshop is http://www.paint.net/ , but GIMP is more efficient than it .

I've had GIMP for editing my digital pictures for over 2 years now and there is rarely a day goes by that I don't use it. I've never needed Photoshop because there is always a plugin available online to enable GIMP to serve all of my photo editing needs.

Windows Live Photo Gallery is alright for basic stuff. I've always liked Paint.NET, has decent capabilities for photo editing.

+1 for the GIMP. In fact, I actually prefer it to Photoshop.

1. $700.00 vs. FREE!
2. I prefer the way the path tool works in GIMP

I have full on PS on my Mac but just cannot justify paying for another full license for my Windows PC. GIMP was the way to go for me. I also run it, of course, on both my Linux boxes.
