image editing/graphic design software

Some of the most popular image editing and graphic design programs are commercial and high-cost. For example, Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign are very popular Adobe products. However, there are some free/open source alternatives:

GNU Image Manipulation Program/GIMP (Windows, Mac, Linux)
