The Gimp

I found The Gimp very hard to use.

It has a learning curve, yes, but no more than Photoshop. There are other tools out there for basic photo manipulation which have a lower learning curve, but when looking for a free (meaning, not stolen) high-end photo manipulation package, Gimp is the way to go.

and you can re-map the Gimps keystroke combinations to more closely match photoshop.

You could also look into running Photoshop under Wine.

But personally, after a while, I came to prefer working with the GIMP.
