    • The technology in GIMP really is stellar. There are tutorials all over the web for accomplishing just about everything you can imagine. Photoshop is a great piece of software, no doubt. But with their change to Cloud licensing GIMP is just that much more enticing. I *highly* recommend GIMP.

    • GIMP is a powerful, yet fairly lightweight platform for general image editing. It runs on many platforms, including some obscure Linux distributions.

    • It is probably the closest alternative to Adobe Photoshop, at least from those I know. For me personally too complicated but if you know how to use it, you can do many things you can do with Photoshop too. What I also noticed is that it loads very quickly on Linux.

    • Cuz open-source. But less for editing, while more for painting.

    • I was working with PS since v1.3! Since they start the Creative-Cloud-Versions, they deliver no more quality, so I was looking for a alternative to PS, like is. I compare MyPaint, Pixlr, GIMP, Krita and some more, but Krita was the best for me. Easy to switch from PS, no unstable App, can read PS files, and supports privacy by default (a big problem with PS and Pixlr).
