Few peo­ple will ar­gue that you can’t go wrong with Gimp, if you’re in­ter­ested in a ma­ture and fea­ture-packed image edi­tor. It’s been around for years and boasts of a vast user com­mu­nity. The project is also in­cred­i­bly well doc­u­mented, and the sub­ject of sev­eral books, and you can also find tu­to­ri­als and video­casts on­line.

Krita is also an ex­cel­lent op­tion, but would ap­peal more to bud­ding artists. Al­though the pro­gram has been pri­mar­ily de­signed for paint­ing and an­i­ma­tion, you could still use it for per­form­ing some ba­sic image edit­ing. If you spend a lot of time with raw im­ages, you’ll ap­pre­ci­ate

RawTher­a­pee. Its non-de­struc­tive image edit­ing and batch pro­cess­ing abil­i­ties make it pop­u­lar with pros. Al­though it hasn’t seen a new re­lease in a few years, UFRaw is another op­tion, es­pe­cially if you pre­fer work­ing from the com­mand line, as its batch pro­cess­ing can be in­voked from the ter­mi­nal it­self.
