Pros: i like how i can use it on any platform, windows, linux and mac. it is also free. i like that. and user can contribute to the community

Cons: sometimes it hangs on my machine, consumes lots of memeory space. and it is not that easy to use as to photoshop. we need it to be as good as photoshop

Has its limitations, but if you don't have a budget, it's the best choice around

Pros: GIMP is a free, open-source swiss army knife style image editing application. It can do a little bit of a lot of things. I work a lot on different systems, and not every computer I have happens to have a copy of my go to apps on it. In those situations, GIMP is the best solution to download and install quickly to get done what you need. If you're aspiring to get into the creative field but don't have the money for an industry-level app (although it's gotten more affordable than ever these days), this is the best place to start learning.

Cons: For those that have used professional editing applications, it can feel a bit clunky; the UI doesn't feel intuitive to me (but I'm used to editing in PS) and sometimes I can't find the tools I need. But being free, how much can you really complain?

Overall: GIMP is a good alternative for me when I don't have access to my go-to image editing apps in order to get things done.

Pros: Well, it's free! It has most all of the features of any of the paid options like Photoshop and Affinity Designer. Cross-platform too!

Cons: It seems considerably harder to use than some of the other options out there. It's just more confusing and not as good looking.

Pros: With gimp you can do everything with your image from restoring it or simply recotarca, put everything you can imagine into effect, provide excellent tools and the best thing is that it is free software.

Cons: There are moments when it freezes without knowing why, I also think that the final image lacks quality since there is a slight distortion, they are things more than everything that can be repaired over time, because taking advantage of that is an excellent tool for design.

Pros: It has what it takes to design images, it has excellent tools that to be free is super great, the designs I make are of quality and I can also use this software in linux and windows.

Cons: I think some tools are not optimized because sometimes it is not as we expected, however being free I consider it a powerful tool that will help us when it comes to design.

Overall: I like it because independent of the operating system that I use, I can download it and install it without problems.

Pros: If you can get around the sometimes unintuitive software, the power behind the free application is amazing. And that's a big selling point of this package - it's free. A lot of what you can do with photoshop you can do with GIMP. It's a beast to master, but the community behind it is motivated, and that's something I love.

Cons: GIMP can do a lot of things photoshop can do, but if Photoshop is a Tesla Model S, then GIMP is your mom's 1997 Saturn Ion that she needs to get rid of. Yes - it will probably get the job done, but it will be a bit harder, a bit less smooth, and a bit more frightening.

Overall: It's free, so if you need to do a one time project, this is not a bad way to do it.

A good design software. You can create and edit images in a bunch of ways.

Pros: Nice features like removing an entire background or spot-fixing. It also has great trace and cut-out capabilities.

Cons: What I don't like is the overall image quality. You can't really get a good picture with the Pixel Quality if you can't select a canvas size. The photos are usually grainy in appearance. Few Assets, needs a lot more.

Overall: Needs a makeover with more features. But it's free and It will get the job done.

Pros: GIMP is fairly full-featured, especially for a free program. An open-source, free, cross-platform image editor is a really good thought. It definitely gets the job done.

Cons: GIMP falls flat when it comes to quality of the final product. I can edit the same image in three different programs, and GIMP almost always ends up being the lowest quality.

Overall: On a tight budget when we began, we were able to implement graphic design quickly and easily.

Pros: This tool is introduced by my instructor when I was in college and I have been using this for almost 7 years! As a Web Developer, I need a reliable image editing tool to edit website logos and images for my websites. The size of this tool is lighter than Photoshop so it is so easy to install on any computers.

Cons: I don't have any problems running the tool for Windows and Linux OS but in Mac OS, whenever I run gimp, it always froze. And I need to quit it and run it again to properly work.

Overall: GIMP is really great! I always use it to edit images and logos for my website development.

Pros: -The first Pro is that it's free.
-It has all the tools that you may need to edit images.
-A very large community of courses or tutorials, this is very important to get the most out of it.
-I like it to be compatible with filters, scrips and plugins.
-I love its compatibility with multiplatform because I am a user of windows and IOS

Cons: I can only say that it still has some errors using some tools that cause the unexpected closure of the program

Pros: I use GIMP for website pictures for a small business. I don't have to do a lot of major graphic designing, so GIMP is everything I've ever needed to make items for sale look very neat and professional on our online store. It has tons of capability for editing, cropping, and touching up pictures, and it runs super fast when updated properly.

Cons: I have been a Photoshop user in the past, so I am partial to that program when I need to do some heavier lifting in terms of photo editing. Also, I have had some issues with this program in the past not wanting to automatically update and consequently becoming super laggy.

Overall: It has edited pictures that i can now use to promote our app and website - they look extremly professional :-)

Pros: It is free, it is open source. It got almost all the benefits of using Photoshop without paying a bit for it. You can edit an image by using layers, use the magic wand, filters and everything.

Cons: The learning curve is bigger than Photoshop and the tools are not as accurate as they are on Photoshop (it has no anti alias when pixels are being edited). Still, it's a really good software.

Gimp needs to be updated. It wants to be photoshop but it's so not.

Pros: The only thing I like about this software is that it's free. I would never pay for this software because it crashes all the time and it's difficult to navigate. Going from better software like photoshop to gimp is a huge learning curve.

Cons: Everything about this software is a con. It crashes. Different layers cannot be selected at the same time. The graphic comes out weird after I save and export. Did I mention it crashes. It takes so much cpu, more than photoshop.

Overall: It's free and I needed to make a flyer fast so that was the only benefit.

Pros: Considering how expensive Photoshop and all the Abode products are, Gimp is the perfect alternative if you are a student or aren't making any money with it.

Wether it's just for fun or to learn graphic design, Gimp is awesome and very similar to Photoshop.

Something I REALLY like is that you can install it on Ubuntu OS, something you can't say about any Creative Cloud software. I use Ubuntu to develop websites and sometimes I need to make quick edits to images or just resize them and it's a huge pain having to switch to Windows to do that with Adobe.

Also and very importantly, Gimp is FREE!

Cons: Being used to Photoshop will make things easier when you first use Gimp but it will also be a little confusing, specially when working with digital painting. That's not really their fault though!

Overall: It's free and I can install it on Ubuntu.

at the moment of carrying out large projects, it tends to cherish the pc, but this is relative since a larger project requires a better computer

Pros: I was looking for a good software product that can work with .psd files. This product can make all sort of photo manipulations that is needed with this sort of files (editing, layering ,...).
User interface is mostly simple to understand and use. There are plenty of options to use for Your work. All operations are fast enough, in most of cases.

Cons: User interface is similar to some other software but it's different just enough to make work slightly more difficult. Loading some times take too much time. Original filetypes is very specific so You have to export everything that You work on. Help is only on-line.

Overall: There was a problem as there is a plenty of media material on-line in .psd format and without product that can use and edit it. This is a good software product that can work with .psd files.

- Very extensive and scriptable.

- Surprisingly efficient for the task it does.

Cons: - Is there even paid support?
- Confusing interface: its choice for separate windows can be a bit weird. It is especially daunting to those used to other alternatives.
- Does not have all features one is used in other alternatives, such as Adobe Photoshop.

Overall: I'm rarely do image processing but it is sometimes needed when working on smaller teams and companies (and of course in the courses I've taken to be able to do it). In general, I had a good experience with GIMP but my more experienced colleagues are not that happy with it. I would recommend it, I know many professionals who use it a lot but it is clearly not the main option in the market.

Once you pass the learning curve it's great.

Pros: GIMP is free. It's been in development for years, and all upgrades are free. It's 'good enough' as a image editing software.

Cons: It's free because it relies on volunteers to work on it's software. A few years ago, the chose between GIMP and Photoshop was easy to understand... GIMP is free but has really ugly UX design. Photoshop is fully functional but cost alot.

Now that Photoshop costs per month and Adobe has really given Photoshop some incredible features, it's a no-brainer to use Photoshop. Something that takes 2 minutes in Photoshop may take an hour in GIMP. You're saving small amounts of money over time.

Overall: Not much. It's software I return to every few months to see if it's worth it. But it just cannot compete with the industry standard that is Photoshop.

Pros: Gimp is a great free and open-source tool that allows you to achieve Photoshop quality results. It has a nice collection of both basic and advanced photo editing tools that allow results to be quality when you don't have the money to spend on a pricy photo editor.

Cons: There is no real guidance on how to use the software, short of watching some youtube videos to figure out what you need to do. If you are familiar with Photoshop, you'll be able to figure out things, but if you are a novice, it may take a while.

Overall: Able to edit photos without purchasing expensive software.

Cons: It has a lot of functions ,which means that novices will need some time to get use to everything .However there are plenty of helpful materials online and with a little determination ,it shouldn`t be that hard .

Pros: Easy to use and install. Can open a variety of graphics file formats (including EPS if you install ghost script) and does not use a lot of resources (RAM/CPU). Best of all, it is free.

Cons: I see no real con for this software. The only thing I could say it that it does not open Adobe Illustrator files, but that is understandable, as it is a proprietary file format.

Pros: Gimp has so many positive aspects that it is difficult to summarize them. The fact of being a free program and available for several operating systems makes it the best alternative. Its interface is very simple and even the most novice can start in the work of manipulating images with this software. Another advantage is the few requirements that it demands for the little space it occupies in the hard disk. Gimp is a great software.

Cons: Honestly I do not find any negative aspects in the Gimp software. It seems to me one of the best programs that I have worked with throughout my professional life.

Overall: Gimp has become my best friend when it comes to working with images and graphics. Both at work and in my personal life I have used it on multiple occasions and the experience of working with this software has always been gratifying. It is very simple. I highly recommend it to all those who want to start in the area of image design and manipulation.

Pros: It is a great program for some basic fun edits. I do not use this program for my professional photographs. It has a lot of features and different ways to customize and enhance your images. The newer versions of gimp are stronger than some past ones. I feel like the layering has grown stronger and its ease of use has gotten better. You can also get plug ins to make it a bit more like photoshop but for me that starts to be a bit too much clutter. For the price tag you really cant complain it does a great job and holds its own against other expensive programs. You can find some really great tutorials online to help with some of the learning curves of the program.

Cons: There is a lot going on with GIMP i find it can be too cluttered. It can be a hard program to learn and can be frustrating as some of the tools are not as clean as I have used in other programs. The program itself works differently than a photoshop or on 1 so it may take some time to get use to.

Pros: I used GIMP for years before switching to Photoshop. GIMP can do 60% of the things that Photoshop can do. It's perfect for beginners and intermediates. You don't need Photoshop to start a business at all. Photoshop is there if you want more powerful rendering tools. Stay with GIMP until you need something more to justify the cost of Photoshop.

Cons: Some features that Photoshop has are not in GIMP, but most people won't need those features. Once you use GIMP enough, your curiosity for rendering and design optimization will naturally grow. As you get more advanced, you will naturally grow out of GIMP and transition to Adobe suite. So it's not a huge deal. For the free cost?? Go with GIMP!

Pros: First off gimp is free which is pretty amazing considering all of the features it has. Gimp has almost every feature that you would want from a full priced photo editing software like photoshop. There are tons of option, tools, filters, effects, and ways to make your photos/drawings look amazing

Cons: It's hard to use. There, I've said it. I'm sure if I used gimp every day I'd get the hang of it, but I'm used to using photoshop and gimp just seems harder to use. IM constantly googling how to do simple things in gimp that should be intuitive.

Pros: I've been using Linux for almost 20 years now. Image editing is something you have to do every now and then, for school projects, university, and then for work. Having a single tool that accompanied me all the way is great. It does the most common things an occasional user might need, yet it's capable enough that a graphic tablet will be put under good use.
It's extensible and there are lots of free plugins available.
And of course, it's portable and available for different OSes.

Cons: If you have a friend that knows PS, it's possible he will complain about missing features and won't be able to help you. However this is more a professional than a hobbist tool, and you will need some education. Guides are available but you're better off just experimenting.

Cons: I do not feel there are a lot of cons at this point time, but maybe tyou can say that it still lacks some features that Adobe provides, not big ones, but very specific stuff.

Pros: This has most of the necessary tools, albeit under different, names, at near full functionality when compared to the competition. I can do almost everything I've ever done on rival editing programs with some digging.

Cons: This often takes some digging. To avoid infringement expect to spend a fair amount of time in tutorials or the Gimp wiki looking for the right tool name for what you are trying to do. My first time through after transitioning was a slog in regards to time, even if everything felt relatively familiar. Renaming and re organizing can take some relearning too.

Pros: Disclaimer, I am not a graphic designer. I don't often have complex needs when editing images, but even when I do GIMP can handle it. If graphic design was my profession then maybe it would be worth paying to use another product, but GIMP does so much with zero cost that it's a no-brainer. While there are a lot of features in GIMP that I don't always know how to use, doing a quick Google search will find me the answer 9/10 times - there are lots of online resources on how to use GIMP, including YouTube videos for training.

Cons: I don't really have any complaints about GIMP. If I had to nitpick, the user interface isn't very modern. But it's still very easy to use.

Overall: GIMP allows me to meet all my graphic design needs for free, so I don't have to pay for another product that would more than likely be overkill for what I'm trying to do.

Pros: I'm not aware of any other free similar software with that much functionality and gimp does a good job at what it does once you are used to the interface

Cons: It is much less intuitive and appealing as photoshop, the interface is convoluted, and some tools are initially confusing, often slightly less powerful than PS

Pros: Whats not to love about a photoshop clone that is opensource. I use it on my 2012 macbook and it works great. While my old version of photoshop stopped working due to osX udpates Gimp kept working.

I do very basic photo editing and it does the trick for me. Save your money and get Gimp

Cons: The UI is a little dated but it is also opensource so you have to love that. Not a lot to hate about people writing software that I can use for free.

Overall: Cheap photo editing

Pros: I love GIMP. I use it all the time when I need to edit a quick photo for marketing and am on a computer without photoshop. It delivers 99.9% of what photoshop does without the price tag.

Cons: That missing .1% can be a dagger at times. It means I have to learn around what I am trying to accomplish. The upside of course is I become more knowledgeable on how to use the program.

Pros: The thought that is free to use says it all. It can get things done, I really like the documentation its well explained and there are a lot of tutorials that can help.

Cons: I can't really think of a bad thing about this software, but maybe in future the developers could add more features.

Pros: It's free! And if that's not enough, I've found that I can do most of the same things in GIMP that I could do in Photoshop or other graphics editors.

Cons: Learning curve is a little steep -- but that's coming from a long time PS user. With that said, there are a number of learning resources and tutorials on the Internet to help.

Overall: The benefits range from quick photo editing to in depth graphic design.

Overall: Helps me edit images for free!

Pros: The final image can be saved in the xcf format of GIMP that supports layers, or in a flat format without layers such as: .png, .bmp, .gif, .jpg. It is available for multiple platforms and Operating Systems. This application occupies very little space on our hard drive.
It is completely customizable. You can change the appearance of the tools, the icons, the positions of the buttons.
The included channel mixer gives you the flexibility and power to make your black and white photography stand out

Cons: Add some functions and tools to be able to do a better job when editing the image
A tutorial could be made so that new users can learn and understand the program a bit more by downloading it

Overall: GIMP compares a lot with Photoshop, one of the differences that make this software better is that it uses less memory when it is downloaded to our computer.

Pros: This software is very similar to Photoshop, only it's free! It has a lot of the same features and manipulations. I love Photoshop, but can't really afford it. So this is a great free option. If you need to do a little more than basic photo edits, but can't afford Photoshop, this is the way to go. It looks like the newer upcoming versions will include gradient features as well, so that's definitely a plus.

Cons: It's not Photoshop, obviously, so there are things that Gimp doesn't have such as adjustment layers. It also take a little getting used to (learning where things are, etc.) if you're used to Photoshop.

Excellent free alternative to the other photo editing software.

Pros: I love everything about it. It is very easy to use, and has all the functionality of the other photo editing software and then some. The workspace is perfect and the UI is very well designed.

Cons: There is nothing not to like about GIMP. My only peeve is the load time - however that could well be my laptop and not the software itself.

Overall: Open source software that works as well if not better than it's overpriced colleagues

Pros: Gimp allows you to edit photos and create graphics for free - even doing many of the things the more expensive professional software Photoshop does.

Cons: It takes some getting used to what all of the tools and pieces are called. And there's not as much tech support for Gimp as there is for Photoshop.
