Check out Download.com for suggestions. If that isn't the category you're looking for (above link), select another one and remember to sort by Free license. That way you don't have to pay $500-$700 for good software, you only see free ones.
I hate time-limited trials too, feature-disabled trials aren't too bad but I still prefer free and open-source.
I know yEd Graph Editor is good for creating SVG images.

So which format is it that you want?
You can take a look at VCW VicMan's Photo Editor, but I doubt it will be to your liking if you are a avid image editor:
Like FirefoxRocks mentioned earlier, some of these will be feature limited. In this case, this one is free but has limitations.

Basically there is GIMP and Photoshop. If you can't or don't want to buy Photoshop, use GIMP. Now that the LWZ patent has expired in most countries, saving to .GIF shouldn't be a problem and JPEG has never been a problem with GIMP.
Now GIMP is NOT photoshop nor comes close to replacing PS. But it does argueable do something better. I prefer the lens flare effects from GIMP over Photoshop so I tend to use both. That being said, I use PS with various KODAK filters for restoring pictures every day. But then again that IS my business so...

It doesn't matter how good or powerful something is if you struggle too hard to learn how to use it.

Of course, Photoshop is the best. But I think if I had it mysteriously stolen from me, I'd switch to Paint.NET.
G/L with finding a good paint program!

Now, of course, besides Paint.NET, everything basically boils down to two choices: the GIMP or Photoshop. If you had money, I'd definitely recommend Photoshop (it's the greatest!) If you lack money (which seems to be obvious from your post), then I'd suggest just downloading the GIMP. Since you already seem to have the GIMP, if you are still unsatisfied, perhaps you could try Paint.NET. But I do think that the GIMP has more features than Paint.NET, so it'd be rather pointless for you to do so.
