Sonia I recently went to the local camera club as a guest of my wife :-) and 
was stunned to find all the old-farts doing *really serious* photo-shop 
making out. In 1 evening I learned more about gimp that I already knew!

It was a lecture on photo-shop but still!!
Since I was sentient when Sputnik was launched, don't under estimate what the 
OLD-farts can achieve. Gimp *may not* be the right solution, but it's 
certainly a good one.
