Gimp and Paint.net are good but Photoshop is still the best for me !!!

Photoshop, Lightroom and fireworks.

Fireworks engine is better than Photoshop in compressing images for web-use. :)

GIMP for me! :)
Firstly, it's FREEEEE!!!
and it does just about everything i need (as a beginner hobbyist) in a photo editing program.

I have no doubt that if I were a professional, GIMP would somehow limit my editing abilities.

well simply put lightrooom is like a super improved version of adobe bridge for handling batches of photos and improved version of elements tied together..
but if u do only a few photos and heavy photoshop
then lightroom doesn't work for it..
its more like a workflow solution ..

Photoshop belong primarily to the Create & Edit category.
Lightroom goes to the Edit category.

Mainly use Paint.NET.
Pros :

1. Free
2. Simple enough to use as is
3. I started out with it and find no use to 'upgrade'
4. Good enough for my '1min PP' (ie. levels, curves, contrast, crop, B/W)
5. Add plug-ins (again free) and it really quite powerful

Cons:
1. No good scissors tool (but then I don't want to spend too much time doing this anyway)
2. Less power layer (esp. no layer mask AFAIK)
3. Many tutorials will refer to Photoshop techniques, which will be hard/cannot be applied using Paint.net (main source of techniques will be fro mthe Paint.Net forums)

Sure you can. Use the Mogrify Plugin: http://timothyarmes.com/lr2mogrify.php
Lot's of options to insert into the picture or create a frame where you can place the caption into.
