Photoshop Vs Gimp
« on: 05-02-2010, 23:06:33 »
Ok we're all web designers here and we've probably all dabbled in photoshop but what about GIMP. It's free and surprisingly powerful, anyone use it here ?

I have used it in the past and it's pretty darn impressive, it lacks some of the advanced features within photoshop but it's a great place to start for someone who can't afford PS.

GIMP is open source right? I tried it last year when i first got into photoshop, it's not bad, I mean it caters for layers and has many of the same functionalities as photoshop but it's still so far behind and even with it's extensive plugin support it's still not considered a pro tool.

So although I really like it, I have to say you might as well just jump straight into photoshop as it's the only tool that most web designers take seriously!

I prefer Photoshops layout so much more, it is easier for a newbie to get started with photoshop as well as access to all of their tutorials.  GIMP I've noticed has a steep learning curve but is also free..there is a lot of customization you can download online for GIMP as well.

if you are going to working in the industry get photoshop as its unlikely to switch over anytime soon. If it's just personal then use whatever program your budget allows. You can also get Affinity Photo or GIMP ( free ) . I believe it would be adequate for most if not all your post-processing/editing needs.

whatever program you get, your still going to go through the same thing.

I prefer Gimp, as it is free to use, and you can still get professional results.

I am using the xp-pen star g640 ( https://www.xp-pen.com/product/51.html ) drawing pad for Gimp . It’s the best thing I ever did for photo editing. It’s seriously amazing.
