As a long-time Photoshop user, I recently have started using Gimp and am quite impressed. It will do everything Photoshop will do for standard and semi-pro projects, it's free, and there is a lot of Google-search help to find. It is not for extreme, high-end pro studio work with advanced techniques, but now that I am retired I don't need that. I am quite impressed by it, and it is constantly being upgraded. To test, I just finished a 3-month intense project and used Gimp instead of Photoshop. I was impressed with how fast I picked up on the main tools, and it performed flawlessly and 100% the quality that Photoshop produced with the same project.

It is all I use now. Oh....and by the way....with what Photoshop costs now, and, if I am not mistaken, I believe that Photoshop is now on a "rental" licensing program, so you will have an on-going cost factor of $30/month or $360 a year, to consider.

Hard to beat Gimp.

The first link is to an "automized creation" online program for creating online tutorials; I have no experience with that. The second website you link to (alternativeto.net) for alternate graphics programs is a good website for listing alternative options. Good find on that one!

The only one I tried once is Paint.net; I can't remember much about it, but I don't have any bad recollections either. I have not tried any of the other programs listed. The only thing I noticed is that CorelDraw, Printa and Sketch are vector line draw programs, which operate entirely different from bitmap editors (aka "paint" programs) so if you are looking for photo image editing those are not for you. I know CorelDraw very well and use it constantly, but it is not created for photo manipulation. Also, any Corel product is not free, so if you are looking for a free program do not look to Corel. Corel Paint is also listed, and as I said already, it will not be free.

Sorry, wish I could be of more help. As far as I can see from the overall descriptions, some of the other programs may be as good as Gimp, but I don't think they will be better.

I also use gimpa, but I have heard opinions that not everything is so easy to do on it. Sometimes I have to look for some more specialized options. If, however, someone is looking for a program for basic image processing, then Gimp is perfect in my opinion.
