GIMP vs Photoshop


My skills in graphics editing are limited. I learned how to use Paint Shop Pro in the 90s when I was a kid, before Photoshop became insanely popular, and I never learned anything else.

Today I decided I'm going to try to teach myself some high end image editing software, PSP hasn't been cutting it, and I've never been too slick with it anyway.

So my question is, GIMP or Photoshop? How does GIMP compare to it? GIMP appeals to me more because its freely available. I've tried it a few times in the past, and I've also tried photoshop a few times as well, but I never really got into either of them.
