"In no way comparable to Adobe Photoshop (any version)"
Version: GIMP 2.8.14
This is a decent application for anyone not wanting to invest in the purchase of an established retail photo editing program and having a lot of time to learn how to use it.
At a beginner level user of this product i found GIMP extremely difficult to use for basic photo editing. I found cropping an image nearly impossible as well as moving guides to be extremely difficult in setting because an arrow covered the guide marker. I found the use of all tools far to complicated and equally difficult to locate what i was looking for without clicking all tabs. In general I find interface to difficult to understand for occasional use and that using the program would require a lot of time to figure out.
This is a very good photo editing program simply because it is free for users. I do not find it anywhere near equal to Adobe's Photoshop (any version) in ease of use or functionality but again i have used Adobe products for many years. I think there is room for improvement in the layout of tools to make using the interface much easier for the user. As a photo editing program for free, GIMP does have a lot of features which given time and practice would be of benefit to users.
