Now, I don’t use GIMP, but I have astrophotography friends who do. They say it’s not that easy to use, but then again, neither is Photoshop.

Might as well make it unanimous. Gimp. And best part iis it can be installed on a server where it can be accessed as a photo manipulation service. You can see Gimp at work here.

I’d say the learning curve is no steeper than that for Photoshop.

GIMP, hands down. It doesn’t have quite the same range of functions as photoshop, and it’s different enough to confuse you if you’re used to photoshop, but you’ll get the hang of it.
