Gimp also offers a ton of plugins. Everything from sci-fi effects to turning images into cartoon illustrations.

I understand that Gimp doesn't provide complete solace to
dye-in-the-wool Phtoshop users. Yes, the 'transparency layer' and a few
other items are not available. However, Gimp also has various elements
that Photoshop lacks. While the entrenched Photoshop user may be
disappointed with Gimp, the great majority of users will barely begin to
scratch the surface of what Gimp offers. Gimp certainly exceeds
PaintShop Pro in capability.
