Does anyone here use GIMP and know where I can find some tutorials?

No I don't use it, I prefer Rawtherapy or Photodirector but better still Canons DPP, try Youtube or just search for Gimp tutorials there are loads on line..

Thanks Chimpy, I will look up those other titles as well, I am currently looking for the best, least expensive option for post processing.

Yup, I agree that YouTube is the place to go for tutorials. I also don't use Gimp. I tried to get used to it, but a commercial product like PaintShop Pro is soooo much easier to use, I just couldn't see the point of using Gimp. Plus, it doesn't support my Topaz plugins (although there is a way to use them by using Irfanview as an intermediary via the clipboard).

If you are shooting Raw, look into darktable (Linux and Mac) or RawTherapee (Linux, Mac, & Windows). Both are pretty good alternatives to Lightroom.

 

They're also much easier to learn and use than Gimp (in my experience)

You could also try Lightzone (free):

It takes a little getting used to, but there are a lot of YouTube tutorials for it.
