Gimp is a free software for making graphics for the computer. It is liek paint, yet more advanced. You can make logos with it, pre made logos that you can edit. You can make web graphics, icons, there are so many options that you have to look for to find, and when you find them, you will be quickly making things for your website that will benefit it greatly. I did not know all of this until I needed to make something for my forum, I looked at Gimp and had alook at the features and there is quite a lot of good stuff there!

Do you use Gimp or are you a Photoshopper. Why?

I heard about Gimp but not ever used it before.

I have used Photoshop cs for editing and making any simple graphics

Does Gimp have any advantage over Photoshop?

One thing I would say is its free and I think it can be used just as good as Photoshop, bar some professional things. You couldn't make a professional magazine with it, but you can with Photoshop.

I do feel that people go straight to photoshop for everything, when they could save money and do it on Gimp. If they don't know if the can do something on Gimp, Google it. I am sure there will be other people who have thought of doing it and made guides on how to do it in Gimp, saving so much money than using Photoshoop. The quality is fine in my opionon, but I would be interested what other people think about this.

I'm no graphics pro by any means!

I know my way around the basic of Photoshop and use it from time to time.

I have never used Gimp, but it does look interesting. May have to give it a try.

I think Gimp sucks. It's like an advanced microsoft paint with a piss poor user panel and after having it for a few days, it quickly found the bottom of my recycling bin.

It may be free, but it's definitely not as good.

Photoshop and Illustrator are the best for a reason.

Gimp! Yes I used for a while. But after taking the Ps & Ai I'm now free from it. But it is also a good tool for Graphic Designer.

ahhh... old gimp... I thought it was dead! Used it long time ago and it felt bulky and not user friendly at all. Not sure how much it has changed but definitely an OK option.

Personally, hands down for Photoshop.

I have also used Gimp in the past, but I find Photoshop to be more user-friendly (at least for me) :)

Gimp is a popular freeware tool to design elements, icons, graphics etc., I have heard from my friends that many corporate companies are also using Gimp only to design some product icons kinds of works.

Actually gimp is alternative of photoshop, where photoshop has paid option but here gimp is free, but most of the time i use photoshop because of i used to use photoshop. Gimp also have similar option like photoshop. And it's works great for graphic designer.

When I was in highschool, I used GIMP in creating my logo thesis and I don't know yet about Photoshop at that time. I knew photoshop when I was in freshmen. There's no much differences between the two but since adobe is much more popular so people mostly used Photoshop as their editing software.

I only ever used Photoshop when I was in school only because it was there, but since I left school a long time ago; I haven't had any access to it. I like Photoshop for it's complexity and loads of features, but the way they are managing it now with Creative cloud, I'm not a fan of it. I would rather pay for it up front.

As for Gimp, I just recently downloaded it for some of my projects and had yet to learn. I plan on going through within the next couple of weeks, so far it looks promising! Perhaps I can find some easy to follow tutorials
