I wouldn't go as far as to say Gimp is not a suitable substitute for Photoshop by any measure, but I would agree that most Photoshop users would find it lacking. The problem I have with Gimp is the same problem I have with PS-Elements; while both are capable programs that can do most of the things I need from PS, the toolset is incomplete and neither fit my workflow.
and I couldn't find a good RAW image editor like Photomatix either.
As for a good RAW image editor, take a look at Luminance HDR, RAWTherapee, UFRaw and Darktable. All are available through Software Manager.

Here is a blog/tutorial that describes an HDR workflow using native Linux applications, and much of the work is done from the command line. All of the programs featured are available through Software Manager.

Well good for you. But back then I don't find any solution. May be may be my lan card was not supported by Linux. Because No matter what I do I always get a cross sign and it was my only PC back then and only way to connect internet for help. That was the main reason to ditch mint.

Yes, I know that. I made Nemo default file manger instead of Nautilus. It was working fine. I try to completely replace Nautilus. But Ubuntu's icon and other things are dependent on Nautilus; so I keep both of them. But when I try to extract any archived file through Nemo Ubuntu get stuck (I mean right button "extract here"). So I think why should I spend more time to fix this thing when a stable one is already exist. And another thing is I am a window user (I still use windows 7 to play pc games) so UNITY desktop appearance is not so friendly for me. Seriously it was hideous from the point of usability(from my point of view).

It is, if you have to pay for your copy of Photoshop...

That is the beauty of Linux. If you don't like Unity you can always install another desktop environment that looks more like Windows. Check out XFCE, KDE, or Cinnamon.
