Gimp Mask

AdvantagesIt's free and it does everything a professional photographer could want

DisadvantagesIt has so many features it could take a while to find your way around

"...I would like to reiterate the word "free". This software is downloadable legally for free and has been developed and supported by the users of the program as part of the "GNU Project". I won't go into the history of this, but the philosophy behind the project is that "people should be free to use software in all the ways that are socially useful" to quote the GNU website: http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/philosophy .html Many digital cameras and ..."

Children of the Revolution

AdvantagesIt's free. It's powerful.

DisadvantagesNot shrink-wrapped.

"The GIMP -------- No, it’s not something from the cellar in Pulp Fiction—The GIMP is a piece of open source software that rivals the likes of Photoshop and Paintshop Pro. For those unfamiliar with Open-source—essentially the software is free, and what a revolution it is! Background ---------- GIMP stands for Gnu Image Manipulation Program, and was designed originally to run on Unix (later, Linux), to fill a photoshop-shaped-hole on ..." Read review

The GIMP Software Review

AdvantagesFree, easy to use - able to create professional pictures

DisadvantagesSome cool features that we can do in PS but not in GIMP

"...it works - and especially the fact there is no money involved whatsoever. Apart from money that you can gain. The GIMP, or GIMP is a free software that lets you edit photos, or create professional drawings and digital paintings. After finding out about GIMP, I no longer had to rely on MS Paint. It has many useful tools aswell as the simple Brush, Pencil and Eraser tools including 'Smudge' tool and more. I have been on the popular art website deviantART ..." Read review

Useful image processing tool for non professionals

Advantagesfree, it has all main possibilities of products for image processing, works good and fast

Disadvantagesthe application is composed of separate windows and you chase them

"GIMP is the free Photoshop. I used Photoshop because I worked in the domain of pre-press and I use Gimp because I work in the domain of web development. When I saw Gimp for the first time (after get used with Photoshop) I thought that this application is not user friendly. After working with GIMP, you will see that it is not bad. If your job is not image processing or pre-press, GIMP is one solution for free. You have all file formats for pictures, ..." Read review

GIMP: Get that photo pimped.

AdvantagesFree, More Features, Easy to use

DisadvantagesNew Layout

"...that are readily downloadable from the internet. Even if its interface is quite different from Photoshop because it has a multi-windowed layout, I think one can easily adapt to it. And well, if it isn't that easy then there are a lot of tutorials available online. In my experience, it can handle quite heavy loads as it generally doesn't crash at all. That is really comforting because I'm not the play-safe kind who saves their work every now and ..." Read review

GIMP Photo Editor - Love It!

AdvantagesEasy to use, wide range of functions, free!

DisadvantagesNot a proper airbrush, not very clear set out.

"...not use even half of the tools as either they are not needed, or are too complex! My favourite is the ''airbrush tool''! i would not say that it does airbrush, which would mean getting rid of pores and smoothing out the area, like on picnik (which i am not a fan of, because it costs, but if you take a screen shot then crop the picture you can still use everything for free) it just puts a colour - if you understand me, but it is not solid unless the ..."
