Free or very low cost image editing software?

I have a new desktop (HP Windows 7) after many years (we have been surviving with new laptops/netbooks etc...) and would once again like to be able to edit images/photos. I used to use Adobe PhotoShop CS but our software is as old as the computer and new Adobe is quite expensive for my infrequent use.
I need something that would let me add transparency, edit pixels, change backgrounds etc... not just correct for colour, red eye and crop like picassa for example. No 3D rendering or anything that powerful needed. Out of desperation I used Paint yesterday to edit some clip art. That was frustrating!
I looked at the previous questions but they seemed to be from 2005 or 2007 which is too old to be relevant.
I turn to you to suggest any free image editing software that you might know of. Thanks!
