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

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.

how do they say all the time? You never change a running system. Or ... proven things are difficult to replace

I haven't used it much, but it looks very powerful and well organised. Main reason for my comment: it wasn't installed in my Mint 20 update, likely for the reason Mehdi mentioned, but today it installed without any problem. :-)

I love gimp. It is awesome! But since I have upgraded my linux mint from 19.3 to version 20 (Ulyana), I am not able to open gimp. It is installed properly but when I open it, it raises Segmentation Fault error. I tried it from repository, flatpak, used PPA, even used AppImage but none worked. It works on lower version of mint but not in Ulyana. I could not make it from source because the component versions did not match. Mostly I faced problem in babl/GEGL stuff. I asked for assistance in HexChat but none solved this problem. I miss gimp a lot!

I spend hours to try to make resynthetizer (and Heal selection) plugin work with no success (package, flatpack, binaries of plugin, compiled from source...). Finally I found a really good alternative alternative GLIMPSE. I finnaly removed Gimp and use Glimpse instead wich works fine with resynthetizer plugin !

I know professionals may be used to Photoshop and may think they can't live without it. Maybe some of them really can't. However, the functionality of GIMP is impressive once you know the basic concepts.

Very good software! Could be a bit more user friendly but if you take the trouble to learn the keyboard shortcuts, you can work around this. All round, great photoediting app!

got to gimp.org to install gimp 2.10 with flatpak. gimp 2.8 available here isn't very good.

Es ist "Ok". Bedienung nicht gerade intuitiv und man muss es erst einmal studieren um zu verstehen was man machen kann / sollte, aber es läuft.

No other alternative to Photoshop can manage pictures as good as this app. Highly recommend. Just be patient!
