Editors' Review

+

The volunteer developers of The GIMP have been working hard to develop a polished, user-friendly, and freely distributed image editor. Although the separated palette windows may disturb those users who are used to more traditional layouts, your comfort level should grow exponentially as you discover how pain-free the program is.

One of the most powerful general-purpose image editors around, the upgrades make the GNU Image Manipulation Program eminently comparable to Photoshop. Older features include channels, layers and masks, filters and effects, tabbed palettes, editable text tools, perspective clone, improved printing, and color operations such as levels. New improvements include GEGL integration for 32-bit color support, dynamic brushes, and more options for the free select tool. It even has regex-based pattern matching for power users.

The application provides professional tools that can stand against the big boys without the hefty price tag. Even the installation process has gotten simpler, with no need to download and install the GTX Runtime Environment separately. Extremely powerful and easy to work with, GIMP is ideal for both amateur and pro photographers, Web designers, or anyone who wants to create and edit professional-quality digital images on a budget.

"Same Exact Experience: Crashes on Leopard 10.5.08"

November 04, 2009  |  By sullivandps

 |  Version: GIMP 2.6.7

Pros

I've used this program before on this same computer in the past, but deleted in by mistake. Its a good program when it works.

Cons

The toolbar appears on the screen fine, but the graphic manipulation screen opens up with some enormous default text that is so large you can't read what its saying. When you mouse over toolbar items, large windows open up resulting in crashing.

Summary

There's something wrong with this specific download.

"Won't open. Nearly crashes my whole Mac."

November 03, 2009  |  By redgeminipa

 |  Version: GIMP 2.6.7

Pros

Can't get it to launch correctly, so... NONE

Cons

Won't load, nearly crashes my whole Mac.

Summary

This barely launches. When it does, the windows are huge (larger than my screen), and I can't even resize them to fit the screen. I'm running a 2.4 GHz Aluminum MacBook with Snow Leopard. I'm not sure if this is isolated to Snow Leopard since I just discovered it today. It's completely useless and nearly crashes my whole system. I'll be removing it as soon as I'm done here. I haven't even had any iPhone apps this bad!
