Adobe admittedly is a big name in the "industry" while Jasc is not.
However, I did download the evaluation version of PSP 7.0 from the Jacc website for the 30 day trial and put it through its paces. I found that for purposes - and I am a serious amateur/occasional pro - PSP did everything I needed. It has the layering, filtering, and adjustment capabilities of Photoshop. And it recognizes most plug-ins designed for Photoshop.
