    GIMP is like Photoshop, you should checkout the thread about Photoshop theme for GIMP in this section, maybe it helps you with the transition. And i think Blender is like autoCAD, i think, just google it and you'll know.

    Have a look at Bricscad, I have never tried it but you can get a free trial version.

    The Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program... I think) is excellent as stated above. as for CAD I have used extensively QCAD It is certainly lightweight as far as modern CAD programs go, but it works really well and it is highly intuitive. Blender can be used as an engineering program although that really isn't its purpose; Blender is more of an artist's program. As a side note I also enjoy and recommend Inscape it is a 2d art program that uses scale-able vector graphics which is more object oriented than raster images like those used in Photoshop or Gimp. I hope this helped, and good luck!
