I'm having more fun learning Picasa at the moment strictly because of the user interface.

Same. I wanted a quality photo editor, wasn't willing to pay up for Photoshop, so I tried GIMP but couldn't get a good handle on it.
But this kid seems to really know what he's doing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8OTSC_iVT0

When you scale an image down in Gimp, then save it, you ARE actually changing the file size. Correct? I had one incredibly huge image that almost broke my internets. That was a problem. A very confusing thing is the checkered background lurking behind every uploaded picture. What do you call that thing and what does it do?
Also, Firefox seems to crash if you try to upload a photo from Gimp while the Gimp application is open.
