It’s a pimped up, pumped up GIMP. It has only one GUI window, and the usage is a bit more intuitive than in GIMP.

In it's current state it's basically GIMP with a new name, icon, and some hotkeys.

I see very little adoption in schools happening. Colleges will just purchase Photoshop (as they should) and GIMP. Quite a few of the high schools I've worked in have purchased full Adobe CC subscriptions in bulk. Web-based photo editors are just overall better in a school environment. The online accounts makes it easier to check out laptops/tablets to the students, grade assignments when synced to the student's Google Drive, and access assignments when at home. Plus adding a bookmark saves much more time than installing software on dozens and dozens of laptops.

+1 Star for the new icon
+1 Star (in faith) for the upcoming accessibility features

It's been over a year and they've hardly done anything. Yet they're already planning on launching another image editor. Aside from accessibility, they're solving problems that are either so small, nonexistent, or already have solutions.

Tried it for a few months now. I'm happy there is an alternative to gimp building up, but right now I wouldn't recommend the switch from gimp to glimpse. I had the feeling it is a Gimp lite, which has still a few issues (nothing too major though).

I will still follow development with exictement and looking forward to where this project will head :)

Really good alternative to Gimp (as it's a fork) ! Works fine with "resynthesizer" / "Heal selection" plugin under Linux Mint 20 (as i didn't managed to make this plugin work with Gimp !!!).

I finally replaced Gimp with Glimpse.
