They can do MUCH more than just edit photos. At their lowest common denominator they are quite alike. Although Photoshop can work with 16-bits per channel (48-bit) whereas at present The GIMP is limited to 8-bits per channel (24-bit), though 16-bit support is in the pipeline. The GIMP does have a few major advantages over Photoshop in that is is multi-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux), opensource, and free.

The fact that gimp is free is it's greatest achievement. I use it and there seems to be a way to do everything that Photoshop can do in gimp. But if you could get Photoshop for free using a giftcode, don't waste the opportunity. Photoshop appears to be the leader in graphics and design, and their interface is a bit cleaner than gimp's. They are pretty much identical in capability.
