"Non-intuitive and limited"
Version: GIMP 2.8.10
Will show you how much you need photoshop.
Horrible. You can't even move objects without infuriation. Picture editing is a joke, both difficult and poor.
"Get the RIGHT GIMP VERSION for your OSX version"
Version: GIMP 2.8.10
If you are familiar with Adobe PhotoShop, JASC Paint Shop, or Corel PhotoPaint, the tools are pretty intuitive. You can do all of the basic and many of the advanced operations from those programs in GIMP. This is far and away a more powerful program than Seashore. Great capabilities for the price (FREE).
Crappy install process = lazy, half-baked installation programming (grumble)... see note in summary.
When EPS and CMYK are handled better, GIMP will earn the 5th star from me. ;-)
CNET is linking to the latest version of GIMP, which doesn't work with older versions of OSX. (CNET can't do "everything" LOL)
Go to http://gimp.lisanet.de/Website/Download.html to be sure you get the right version of GIMP for whatever version of OSX you're running.
NOTE: Once you download the correct DMG and double-click it, it just gets unpacked wherever you saved it. So if you didn't save the DMG to the Applications folder, you'll need to open the folder from wherever you saved it and move the app to the Applications folder.
