    This is one hell of a collection!

    Ive never understood why any one would use GIMP over Photoshop, or Illustrator though. You can download either, and theirs more support for Adobe Products.

    Great collection none the less.

      Simply put, money talks. Why would I spend hundreds of dollars on a photo-editing platform when I can save my money, use a software that has 90% of the capabilities, and put my money in other things to enhance my photo-editing experience?

      I’ve used both Gimp and Photoshop extensively, and once you get used to GIMP, there’s little point in investing in Photoshop.

  • Ronald Bien

    @Jwhite

    I agree on what you have just said :) Although Photoshop is more popular than GIMP, their are still people who loves using GIMP:)

    I agree with you, these are really good gimp.

    GIMP is new and is still undergoing devlopment. I know it has a very less market share as compared to Photoshop but soon it will outrun PS because its free and the team behind GIMP is adding excellent features in every release. I m sure one day the whole web world will be opensource .. :) ..

  • manny

    gimp and it’s community is awesome, thanks !!

  • manny

    @JWhite

    umm, using gimp for free is, umm legal, pirating ps is not, as you suggest.

    also gimp is super lightweight (in megabytes, not in features) and has a great community always adding the features you request without you need to pay anything. The entire community contributes

    while ps is more popular (mostly because of that pirating), gimp has been gaining lots of ground and is coming with a cool new interface soon

    anyway my kid just got started in gimp and hes quite happy with it and already following some of these nice tutorials posted here :)
