Yeah.... Sadly, lot of viable answers for everything that's freeware, opensource, and all that jazz. In the end lots of things come down to usability and end-user experiences for what they can use.
A lot like Mac - PC - Linux. I love all three, but I'm taking an unnamed one over the other two. Hah!
Thanks for the details!
But I'm more familiar and comfortable with using Photoshop. Although Gimp is free, it's just not something I can manage. I've done some of the work using Gimp, but not my cup of tea based on previous experience and classes using Photoshop.
Thanks for becoming our first watcher on our first day of Indie DB! :-D
