GNU Image Manipulation Program
  20 reviews

GIMP is an advanced picture editor. You can use it to edit, enhance, and retouch photos and scans, create drawings, and make your own images. It has a large collection of professional-level editing tools and filters, similar to the ones you might find in Photoshop. Numerous fine-control settings and features like layers, paths, masks, and scripting give you total control over your images.

Many image file formats are supported, including JPEG, Photoshop (.psd), and Paint Shop Pro (.psp) files. It can also be used to scan and print photos.

To open files remotely (like over HTTP), install the gvfs-backends package.

To use a MIDI device (like a musical keyboard) as an input controller in GIMP, install libasound2 and read the how-to at /usr/share/doc/gimp/README.MIDI

Since I'm editing images, I'm very happy with GIMP and feel even more comfortable then working with the proprietary "Photoshop", but it may depend on the way you are used to work with images.

Hat eine wirre Oberfläche, nichts mit intuitiv einfach lachhaft. Und: HALLO, wir schreiebn das Jahr 2022 und Gimp kann immer noch nicht 4c-Bilder bearbeiten. Schlimmer geht es nicht. Kein Vergleich mit Photoshop, einfach nur ein Malprogramm...

its little hard to use but with time learning it it works great.. BUT if you install the flatpak version the extra addons you download for GIMP might not work automatically like I have noticed!

It works but has the most unintuitive and frustrating UI I've seen in an art program

O que dizer desse software? Simplesmente TODAS as minhas postagens do Twitter (@Ciberpolimatia) passa pelo GIMP. Na época tenebrosa de minha vida virtual (quando eu usava aquele outro Sistema Operacional, pago e ruim) eu conheci o GIMP e imediatamente eu, professor de Photoshop, abandonei o software da Adobe e adentrei de cabeça ao GIMP... E nunca mais larguei esse excelente software. Vale a pena conferir.

I like GIMP for being an EXCELLENT alternative to Adobe Photoshop, after updating from 19.3 to 20.1 I have no problems with it. :D

Getting better and better over time. If you are a Photoshop user, you may have a learning curve, after which you should be able to use Gimp without much problems.
