Actually, that's the problem -- there *are* so many editors, and each
one has a different interface and different limitations.  I much prefer
to just use one editor that has all the capabilities I need.

It's important to use the right tool for the job, certainly, but image
editing has the same basic primitives regardless of whether it's quick
and dirty or a major project.  Having to remember different commands to
do curves, sharpening, denoise, levels, and such isn't very productive.
