Thread: Who is using the GIMP?

  1. Who is using the GIMP?

    Well, I'm just curious. On french forums, I see lots of people using this software, but as I browse american blogs, forums or websites, no-one seems to mention it... I really surprised, because it's a powerful tool, just the same as Photoshop or Paint shop pro, but free!

    I know several scrappers who use GIMP. I'm not sure if any of them are members here though.

    I tried it out, but found it more comparable to Paint Shop Pro. I didn't think it was as good as Photoshop though. I think it's catching on among scrappers though!

  4. The truth is I didn't try Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop: my budget doesn't allow me to buy any of them. And I thought it was pointless to learn to use the demo, then change for another software...
    I'm still wondering why it's not mentionned on the list of potential softwares for digi-scrapbooking, especially here!

    (oh, and I didn't say it on your blog, but I prefer the new picture!)

    I used it for awhile, and would still be using it, but I won PSE 5 (thank you, GDS! ). I found Gimp easy enough to use, though the interface confused me the first time I used it. LOL I had previous experience with PSP 7, PSP X, and Picture It Express.
    Maybe you can become our in-house expert on Gimp!!

    Hi, I have been using the Gimp for a few months now, I am very new to all these fancy programs and I a ways to go with trying to figure everything out, cant wait for a few more years when I can actually say I mastered one of these programs, but until then I will continue to try and figure it all out. I have got the transparency effects down pretty good, plus I learned to paint in there also, my next adventure is learning how to use the layering effects! Yikes might take me a hile for that one! LOL But its not a bad a program and for the price, well that pretty good also! LOL

  7. I downloaded it, but only spent a short time trying it out. I'm not sure I have the time to learn a new program. I was hoping that it would be more similar to PS than PSP, since I already have PSP. Someday I'll get around to playing around with it more.

    I think any program that lets you scrap is a marvelous program.

    I have to say that GIMP is a pretty robust little program. I used it while my Photoshop was down! It's certainly great for digi scrapping! I hadn't really used it that much until my Photoshop went south! Thanks for reminding me about this! I think I'll set my mother up with it so she doesn't have to purchase any software.
