The GIMP is the boss.

Posted on May 24, 2006. Filed under: tech talk, Teen life |

If you have any doubt about it , then I am going to clear it with this post. I have had very little experience with Photoshop , one of Adobe’s most popular products and the current market leader of image editing software. I was dazzled by the flexibility of Photoshop but after that , I saw the GIMP or rather used the GIMP. I was super dazzled. It is much more powerful than Photoshop , much more flexible and much more extensive. It lives up to the tradition of all GNU freeware. It is better than the most popular software available and much ahead of it’s time. You can do things with the GIMP that you can’t even dream of with Photoshop. You can be a beginner or a professional with the GIMP. Although the user interface needs a bit of patching up, GIMP still reigns supreme.

To top it all , the GIMP is free. It has a lot of space for expansion, why ? Because of the amount of user made scripts that can be added and the tons of free extensions that are available on the web. All of my header images and the logo that I am working on are going to be made with the GIMP. There is little factoid that few people know. The original Google logo was made using the GIMP 1.0. This is the new logo that I made…

the logo is awesome! i love the font.😀
i think i almost have to try out gimp now, even though i’m a photoshop person myself.

To tell ya the truth, both GIMP and PS don’t live to the expectation. Never can a single program reach perfection. Sometimes I need to use all of PS, Macromedia Flash, Adobe illustrator, and Macromedia Freehand to come up with a decent work. You can take a look at my works in this page:

Maybe both of you can keep a tab on ‘ Teen Beat ‘ the latest page that I’ve added. It’s just for showcasing some of my art.

Your current logo is very good. Good use of colors!!

Your definitely improving dude!

Yeah , thanks.

GIMP has crtitical weaknesses compared to Photoshop, at least for photos. The lack support for high bit-depths (16-bit, 24-bit color), color spaces (storage, editing, or display), and raw formats simply kills it. CinePaint (formerly FilmGIMP) addresses most of that, but 1) it’s based on GIMP 1.0 and GTK 1.x and 2) I’ve heard of other problems (ones I’m not qualified to argue). I appreciate your enthusiasm but your claims of superiority are mostly unfounded😉 GIMP is still the best free raster graphics application I know of, but it needs a lot of love before it touches Photoshop.

Hi, it is my duty to only say the same things that I read on slashdot or from other expert sites and I have this to say about GIMP:

“GIMP has crtitical weaknesses compared to Photoshop, at least for photos. The lack support for high bit-depths (16-bit, 24-bit color), color spaces (storage, editing, or display), and raw formats simply kills it.
