I've found Gimp not very intuitive, but once you get the hang of it, it's 
very powerful, and not difficult. You need to climb the learning curve, 
but the view from the top is worth it.

Don't forget imagemagick.. I haven't done much with it myself, but it's an 
amazing array of functions which are well worth researching. Especially 
good if you want batch functions. I don't think there is anything like it 
in either Mac or Windows.
