I am Gimp, all the way. It's not the most user friendly thing, but it can do pretty much anything Photoshop can do for 500$ less.
I tried Paint Tool Sai, but it was too much like real painting, which I don't like.
Why do people keep thinking this? Photoshop is not 500 fucking dollars, you're looking at the business/establishment/institution-licen sed version, and nobody would be idiotic to pay that much for a program, regardless of how good it is - it is, in a sense, just a much more refined and professional version of Gimp, or even one of the many minor image-altering programs out there. It is, usually, about $40-$50 AUD. Hell, I got my version for about $35.
That's under a tenth of the price you're being scared off.
