This is an important fight. If we don't fight over this, then we're left to fight only over which brand of camera we use.

We can't have that.

Is GIMP a solid photoediting software or is it worh the $ to upgrade to photoshop? (or something else). Any comments welcome.
I use PSE and GIMP. GIMP can be very capable. A recent version has added more color depth (used to by 8-bit/color). The main problem with GIMP IMO is that it does not implement adjustment layers. I believe this is being worked on and there has been a recent infrastructure change to support adjustment layers in the future.

Since GIMP is free software I suggest you download it and try it. It will only cost you some time. I would also suggest downloading the FXFoundary plug-ins as they provide some very nice functionality.
