    "Worth The Wait..."

    October 17, 2010  |   By Arionex


    It's easy on the eyes, quiet unique features and similar to Adobe's Photoshop in many ways yet it has a indepentant feeling. This Software is a Must-have.


    The windows size at first can be a pain to get used to, other thing that bugs me is the font uploading process which seems to take longer than expected some times, the wait is worth it, if you don't mind a few seconds of (non-responding) on old PC's.


    This software is an essencial must-have on your personal computer if you do not have nor wish to purchase Adobe's Photoshop. The interface is similar, the tools are similar in many ways and the upside to The GIMP is that it's totally FREE!
