Pretty cool. The last time I used a editing tool of any kind was a DOS based one a couple decades ago. It'll be nice to see what the hype is about with 'Shop.

EDIT: Link to photoshop Click Here (photoshop.com)

Boy howdy, you ain't kiddin'. I finally opened this up to see what it was about and it didn't do ANYTHING I rely on PhotoShop to do at home.

It took me all of one web search and fifteen seconds to determine that the app I REALLY needed for my Windows machine at work was paint.net (getpaint.net). This thing has plugins up the wazoo for future graphical manipulations I don't even know I'll need, and it's freeware (but I may make a donation really soon since it looks like it's got everything I need).

I use Gimp (gimp.org) for my minimal photo-editing needs. That's not to imply that Gimp is lacking in features. I just don't need most of them. It's available for Windows and *nix systems, so I don't have to worry which OS I'm using. Has anybody that does any *REAL* photo-editing used both Gimp and Paint.net? How do they compare?

I use GiMP as well, but I don't know that I'd recommend it to everyone. It feels non-intuitive at times, it doesn't feel like a windows program (they can't find a way to use the normal file open/save dialouges and have to invent their own?) and I always feel like there's probably a better way to do things in there but I'll never be able to figure it out. I use about 5% of what it does because I have no idea how to start on the under 95% without a lot of googling.

Also "GiMP"? Someone thought that was a good idea for an acroynm, really?

GIMP doesn't feel like a Windows program because it isn't. It's a Linux app ported over using GTK. The dialogs are the standard GTK Open/Save dialogs. You'll see the same thing in Pidgin, another ported GTK app.

Yea, I figured it was because they were using something that would work cross platforms BUT I feel that's a lazy job of porting.

It's free, so what am I complaining. It has the ability to be better.

GimpShop is closer to what you want.

Gimp 3 beta is looking more like a regular program.

I use Gimp at work because I'm too cheap to requisition yet another copy of Photoshop. 90% of the time I can do what I want to with it. The other 10% I ask my friend Gary to finish it for me.

GIMP is a stupid name and they are going to stupidly stick by it forever.

It might be alpha. I've read a review, not run it. Let me find the details later today...

My memory is apparently bad. I meant Gimp 2.5.
