I haven't used gimp much but if you do a google search for "Photoshop alternative" gimp is one of the programs that is mostly displayed so i assume It can do pretty much anything photoshop can do.

I'd check out this page from adobe.
http://www.adobe.com/resources/business/rich_internet_apps/whitepapers.html

They have a PDF Document:

The Essence of Effective Rich Internet Applications

Providing a better customer experience for users of interactive software can increase revenues. This paper identifies the four essential qualities that define the new benchmark for interactive experiences.

Could be something worth checking out as far as qualities go for RIA. I didn't check it personally but looks like it would be interesting if you're a FLEX admirer.
