One app I'd like to share for movie editting/creating is CinePaint formerly named FilmGIMP.

CinePaint is a free open source painting and image retouching program designed to work best with 35mm film and other high resolution high dynamic range images. It is the most popular open source tool in the motion picture industry -- used in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Scooby-Doo, Harry Potter, Stuart Little and other feature films

Another tool that I am "getting acquainted with" is Inkscape, a free open-source tool that is going to be the vector-line editing alter-ego of Gimp (actually, I use Gimp more than Photoshop now).

If you know Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw (I'm a long-term CorelDraw user), you will find the screen layout familiar. I am pretty impressed with it so far, especially considering the "price"!

[EDIT]:  Awww shucks, I just now looked at the thread-start date. Oh, well, maybe this could be a pinned thread? Some really good information here.

To spin this into a neat direction, how about a good app on a Smartphone that's quite decent for photo editing. I run a Facebook page for our local Squad detachment of the 501st Legion and I'm typically stuck photo editing on the go. I've used LightX for a few months, I like it, it's proven to be worth what I paid for it. (iOS) but I've been starting to lean into Photofox a bit more, similar idea but with a layer function that really helps!

LightX - iOS ($2.99) & Android (Free + Offers in-app purchases) - Easy to use, built-in tutorial videos for most major functions.

From my part I would like to add following software:

 

Adobe Illustrator - https://www.adobe.com/products/illustrator.html (great for collages and logo creation, as for me)

Affinity - https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/photo/ (also very good as Photoshop and has very large functionality, I used it during logo creation for my educational web project Paperleaf, so here you can see the result: https://paperleaf.ca/).

 

Anyway, it directly depends on your needs. So, if you would like to do some photo editing, pay attention to Affinity Photo. 

If you want to make some 3D models, check 3Ds Max or Blender
