I was curious if anyone here knew of a good photo editing software similar to photoshop that is either on the cheap or free side?

all suggestions would be much appreciated.

Pixlr, when I'm away from my desktop. Works via Flash and is very quick.

+1 to the Gimp suggestion.

Paint.net is another program that some people like.

Gimp and paint.net are both pretty decent.

If you are on a mac SeaShore is alright too.

Another vote for Gimpshop. Although I find that the Gimp interface makes more sense if you're not a Photoshop guru.

Paint.NET is closer to the Ps GUI than GIMP, but GIMP has more Ps-type features.
Paint.NET is more basic (or slightly above); GIMP is more feature-rich. I just hate the way everything is scattered around (though it's been awhile since I've used it).

Gimpshop, if I had to go free. Under any other circumstances, I think Photoshop is worth it
