"Powerful Image Manipulation Program"
This program is great for people who want to do advanced work with graphics and not pay an arm and a leg for it. The controls are not very complicated if you know what they are. One would think operating a forklift to be difficult if they didn't know how to drive one. It has many aspects that are comparable to Photoshop, and can edit Photoshop documents.
Being a free program means that people have to use it to find the bugs. That's a con with almost all open-source software, but it is worth it. I have no qualms otherwise. If you are used to using open-source software and doing bug reports then this will not be a problem for you. Um...it doesn't make me coffee?
This program is great for designers on a budget, people that do recreational photo editing, web designers, designing graphics for print, and anything else you can think of. Easy controls, two different window modes, the ability to edit a TON of files, and many options. It is hard to go wrong using this program.
