Well, there's Photoshop - and it doesn't yet have a real competitor in free 
software. Though Gimp is almost as powerful, it is much harder to use for 
newcomers. Give Photoshop to a newbie, and you'll see him/her working at once. 
Try that with Gimp, and after a few minutes you'll have a confused user. 

I think the reason why there are most times pro-apps and simple programs is, 
that their developers don't think usability far enough. 

Best wishes,
