I'm planning on changing operating systems and using Linux instead of WinXP- I'll likely go with Redhat because there are so many programs and utilities written for it.

So Linux users- what software do you use for photoediting, etc? I'd prefer open-source software. :D

If you don't rely on wizards, such as Paint Shop Pro's "One Step Photo Fix", to do most of the work for you, check out The GIMP. It was created for Linux, but there are also versions for Windows and Mac OS X. It's probably not as easy to learn as PhotoShop Elements or Paint Shop Pro, but it has the power to do whatever you want, much like PhotoShop. And it's free, unlike the others. I haven't tried it, but JPhotoBrush Pro looks interesting for $25.

Gimp is definitely on my list of downloads- I've heard it's quite powerful.

Anyone else have other suggestions?
