GIMP is fine for the casual user, but IIRC it can't work with RAW format, and doesn't do CMYK. The lack of PSD (though a given, since it's Photoshop's proprietary format) is mildly annoying. Also, having used Photoshop and GIMP, holy shit Photoshop's UI is so much better.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM THAT LINK! That version of GIMP includes malware. GIMPshop hasn't been developed for a decade and the one offered in the page is a scam.

www.krita.org crowdfunded open source project with a GUI very similar to Photoshop. It's good.

im pretty amateur at this kind of thing, but imo paint.net was pretty comparable in terms of ease of use. It lacked some features, but was pretty close to photoshop for me.

I love paint.net, but for serious work, its trying to use disneybucks a Caesar's palace. No comparison for features.
