Quite the opposite, for seriuos image processing it's either the ludicrously expensive photoshop or the very able but comes with wired UI GIMP. Everything else is just a variation on MS paint.

The UI is not really that bad once you get the hang of it but I thing a lot of people open up the app, look cluelessly at the strange Windows and go back to Photoshop once they worked out how to shut it down. If they really want market share they really need a more conventional UI which doesn't take a month to get used to.
