For those that aren't ready to invest in Adobe Photoshop, there is a completely free program called the GIMP: Gnu Image Manipulation Program.

Find it here:
http://www.gimp.org/

No, it isn't exactly the same as photoshop, but it can do quite a bit and the price is right. Also, it is available for Windows, Mac, and (my favorite) Linux!

I currently use the GIMP in my digital darkroom to (un)sharpen eyes, process for web, etc.

Yep, gimp is great, especially when you consider it is being developed by a small group of part-time volunteers. I am using it under Fedora with a Wacom tablet and the combination works very well. Unfortunately, gimp doesn't enjoy the same huge userbase that ps does, but I've found that most (~90%) of the material on the web which pertains to ps is applical to the gimp as well. That being said, I'd be interested in any tutorials you or anyone else would care to put together specifically targetted for gimp users, especially ways of emulating in gimp some of the ps features that it doesn't have, such as adjustment layers.

Just wondering: have you had a look at Krita yet? Although apparently it still has a way to come, people in the open source world are excited about the rapid pace of its development as well as its promise of some key things that gimp is missing, such as color management and 16-bit editing.
