Gimp - (GNU Image Manipulation Program) an open-source program originally developed by two university students in 1996. It is a powerful image editor, but with the power comes complexity. That makes this program a better bet for those really interested in playing with digital photography, but it probably has too steep a learning curve for those simply interested in cropping a few photos or removing red-eye.
