i am sorry but i stick to whast i said
i see it as primarily a generic image editor not specifically by any stretch of the imagination a photocentric program
showfoto on the other hand really is for photo and nothing else
check all the options for example under color/black and white...
by the way i love gimp and use it everyday but not often for photowork

There are a few photo retouch based programs worth looking at.
I generally use Digikam for this 2.0 will be out soon and looks really promising. The other option I quite like is DarkTable.
I tend to see such "Photo-centric" editors as too limited and hand-holding in what they do.
As I said, see the Gimp-Registry for scripts and plug-ins. I'm certainly not lacking for options for B&W type things.
Though for the vast majority of my photo work, I use Darktable now.

Now that one is new on me. Tried To install it yesterday on Natty. Using the Pascal de bruin ppa but it says broken packages
Code:The following packages have unmet dependencies. darktable : Depends: libexiv2-6 but it is not installable E: Broken packages
If anyone knows how to install it on Natty would love to know
Personally I love GIMP, but for very basic editing and organizing, you can use Picasa 3 .

I don't hate the GIMP anymore. But I did before I found this site:
Because I hate software I have trouble using. Meet the GIMP has some nice video tutorials that walk a user through basic tools.
I used to have a lot of difficulty using InkScape. But since I've found these tutorials (again, more free online videos), my use of Inkscape has improved greatly: http://screencasters.heathenx.org/
Hope these references help.
