advanced image editor Gimp is an advanced image editor and image manipulation software that is often compared to Photoshop. It offers a ton of features, including advanced layer support, masks, filters, effects and many other features found in professional graphics programs. Beware however that the interface needs getting used to, and the program has a rather steep learning curve. Copyright

Powerful but hard to learn; win users beware 4 stars by Harlan Jun 16, 2019 (Read all my 66 reviews)
This has been a great free program for many years. It is powerful enough to compete with expensive paid products. It is difficult to learn, but no more so than similar programs. Unfortunately, each product has different interfaces and nomenclature, making it difficult to move from one to another, even with many YouTube videos for each product. Users should understand, however, that GIMP is primarily a Linux project, and all development is done for a Linux environment and then ported to Windows without being tested. The result is a growing pile of reported bugs under Windows which the developers admit are not getting much attention. If you are running this under Windows, you may run into these bugs and you can't expect any support. I'm considering moving to paid software. show Review details
Fails 1 stars by Compulink Jan 09, 2018 (Read all my 12 reviews)
Difficult to install. The download site says it automatically installs as 32 or 64 but on my 64 bit laptop it tries to install as 32 bit. When it does install it is slow. show Review details
Powerful, but exasperating 2 stars by biggeros302 Oct 18, 2017
The program is rather powerful, but even more irritating. I simply hate its irrational interface and the way in which he sometimes execute the commands messing everything up. Selecting something is sometimes a torture. In the end it is free so it can be a useful choice, but whenever you can use something else, be it even paint. show Review details
