    Missing loads of features gimp has. Can’t make layers. Selection tools are basically nonexistent. Disappointing.

    Pixlr E has a lot of the same features that GIMP has and Pixlr X allows to make minor edits to photos quickly. Both run in a browser without any need to be installed. And yeah, both are free to use :)

    Adobe Photoshop Express vs GIMP opinions
    Some users think Adobe Photoshop Express is a great alternative to GIMP, some don't.

    No way comparable to GIMP, much too simple in functions. It doesn't give as much options for editing images, as GIMP does.
