"GIMP is Great for most Users!"
GIMP provides the average user a powerful GUI to create, enhance, and manipulate graphic images. You can enhance colors, add text, or create a virtual masterpiece with all of the tools that GIMP provides.
The learning curve is pretty steep if one desires to learn to use all of the tools available. I've been using GIMP for a couple of years, and I still haven't fully grasped the "How to" of many of the functions like using layers, mastering "Selection" techniques, manipulating colors and so on.
In all fairness in reference to my "Cons", I only use GIMP on a limited basis, so I haven't invested the continuity of effort that is required to learn such a powerful graphics editor. The fact is that for a "FREE" feature rich graphics editor, GIMP has continuously proven to be the King of the Hill. I've tried out some of the expensive graphics editors and if nothing else, they were equally difficult to learn how to use them. So I would recommend GIMP to anyone looking for a free graphics editor that provides functionality far beyond the norm.
