Editors' Review

+

The volunteer developers of The GIMP have been working hard to develop a polished, user-friendly, and freely distributed image editor. This application caught our attention--and hearts--as one of the most powerful general-purpose image editors around. The application's features include channels; layers and masks; filters and effects; tabbed palettes; editable text tools; and color operations such as levels. The application provides professional tools that can stand against the big boys without the hefty price tag. The only downside to this otherwise flawless program is the installation process. As it stands now, you have to install Apple's X11 app and The GIMP separately. Once installed, though, the program is extremely powerful and easy to work with. The GIMP is ideal for amateur photographers, Web designers, and anyone who wants to create and edit professional-quality digital images on a budget.

"Great visual editor"

April 26, 2008  |  By DeathinaCan

 |  Version: The GIMP 2.2.10

Pros

I really like that you have so many ways to create neat visual effects and that the program is so easy to comprehend. It has a very cool User interface and most can use the program after only a few minuttes.

I am very happy for the feature that lets you use the clipboards size to make the next picture.

Cons

I find that it takes a lot of system resources and it is a bit annoying, that when you uses more than one instance, it can be hard to define which is the one you need to use.

"Very good"

March 18, 2008  |  By richteral

 |  Version: The GIMP 2.2.10

Pros

It works just fine, I have absolutely no need for PS with this rich piece of free software. Its modular structure is quite handy once you get used to it & arrange your working space properly. It does the job, as simple as that.

Cons

From time to time, esp. when using some fancy plugins, it crashes on my laptop. Some effects are shown in preview, others are not. Menu structure is not totally rational, so it is sometimes intuition (read: wild guessing) over logic which goes against my grain.

"Very Good Software, and it's Free."

January 15, 2008  |  By Lissa D

 |  Version: The GIMP 2.2.10

Pros

This software has lots of tools, pretty nice filters, and dialogs. No need to buy and expensive software to get the job done. I like it very much. Simple to use.

Cons

Some of the filter takes quite a time to process, but its free...

"Perfect adobe clone"

June 20, 2007  |  By danieljackson123

 |  Version: The GIMP 2.2.10

Pros

Well where to begin this program originally created soley for linux users became availible for windows users. And i thank all the people who worked to make the program cross platform. This prg. has everything plus a little more than photoshop plus to make it even better it is capable of using adobe's plugins for all you would be haters out there, heres the best part its free yeah you read right its not a typo its amazingly and utterly free brought to by the people who create free software for linux i've used this program for everything from animation to simple photo splicing. It supports all video formats plus a few extra ones that adobe doesnt.

Cons

All in all this product is almost flawless but unfourtnantly it is open source and thus an incomplete dont get me wrong its functioning perfect. But as with all open source programs it will in essence never be finshed but that technicly isnt a con more of a blessing becuse it will always imporve and never be crappy
