    Zoner Photo Sudio.
    I have the Home Edition (which was a free offer for one day) and there is a Pro and a Free version as well.
    For a free application it has quite a lot of features

    Photoshop.
    Adobe are giving away CS2 Premium Plus Suite. You'll need an Adobe account and you'll need to wait a while as the server is overloaded at the moment (suprise suprise). There may be issues on newer machines but people are reporting that it's working OK on some Win7. Great if you run XP.
    Here's the Adobe link.

    Oh well. Too good to be true and all that. Since I just shelled out for CS6 a few weeks back, I rather expected that it would be true. Such is my luck.
    However, GIMP (which definitely is free) has been trialling 16 and 32 bit / channel support. Up until now it's just been 8 bit which is pretty limiting.
