Still an EXCELLENT photo editor. As a former graphics designer, GIMP has most everything that Photoshop has and you don't have to spend a fortune.

Beware !!! There are some suggesting that you use Krita instead, even calling those who stand by GIMP, Morons. Comparing Krita and GIMP is like comparing apples to oranges, and while Krita is an excellent drawing program, it lacks the functions needed for advanced image editing. I stand with the GIMP. 5 Stars !!!

lol morons saying kritas interface is unconventional when it looks EXACTLY like photoshop, meanwhile gimp looks like it was make in 1972. And yes Krita does painting very well, but that does NOT mean it doesn't ALSO do photo manipulation, it does, and it does it BETTER than gimp ever will.

As a former graphics designer, I see no need to fork out $$$ for Photoshop, and make Adobe lots of money. GIMP has practically all of the features of Photoshop and it's developers don't just rush releases out the door. The magnetic scissors tool is a masterpiece.

Great Program!! and best of all it's FREE !! I've tried Krita, and quite frankly, it's unconventional interface just doesn't cut it.

Krita is a digital painting application, Gimp is a generic image editor. Both programs have entirely different uses. I'd never use Krita to do any sort of basic picture manipulation.

Will admit that version 20's working fine for me (so haven't installed 22 yet) but still, GIMP is still my editor of choice. When you ad G'MIC to it, it makes it superior in many ways to Photoshop. Cannot wait until GIMP goes to 2.10x; the beta version already supports high bit depth which is the main complaint with GIMP in it's present form. Regardless, I seldom (if ever) need more than 8 bits per channel when I do my retouch play. :)

I hate to say it, but GIMP is done. Krita came along and did everything the community had been asking GIMP to do for decades. Ive switch to Krita, it even replaced photoshop for me. Goodbye GIMP, you missed the boat and its over.

My most pleasant surprise. Truly nice work, and to get that free. Thanks a lot for the developer. Fully compatible with all of my PCs, on 3 different OS and language platforms, works without incidents.
Very effective, great for demanding works. Needs some learning but not too difficult to use, give very nice result.

Gets even better. What caught my eye with this release is that you can now have a clipboard brush that's up to 1024x1024. Very cool stuff indeed. It flawlessly installed as well. I'm using the Win 64 version. I've been a GIMPer since 2001 so I might be a little biased. lololol

Took an online course through lynda.com for this. Downloaded three plugins and it out performs Adobe IMHO. I wish that they would update the Linux version though.

I can swear that version 2.6 and even 2.7 was faster. That's my only problem with this 2.8 version. On the other hand, single window interface is a great addition that now, after using GIMP for a few years, I cannot get my head around it. I so wanted it, and now that it's here, I have doubts about it. Weird. Anyway, I always liked GIMP and I have never considered buying something like Adobe as I'm far from a professional, and Photoshop is very expensive for a piece of software for an amateur, absolutely not worth it. GIMP is all, and far more than an amateur photo editor needs. If it just weren't so slow... I was actually hoping it would get faster than the old version. :( Really sad. How many cores do I need to get it run normally? 16? However, because of all the wonderful features, my love for Open Source software and GIMP, out of gratitude for such versatile software we get for free, I have to give it five stars, again. [p.s. but guys what are you doing? why is it getting even slower instead of faster?]
