"The image editor of open systems"

What do you like best?

GIMP is an advanced photography program that also include much tools for make advanced draws. The best thing is that you the same actions that you do in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator in the same program in non windows machines. The selection tools are also great.

Another thing is that can works with PDFs, so you can edit a PDF from GIMP.

What do you dislike?

I can't say anything bad of GIMP, I use it almost everyday without problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GIMP it's the best image editor that there are available in Linux Systems. You can work with GIMP like a professional with their tools. It's free and it's integrated with Ubuntu and much other distributions. Also it's available for Windows.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use GIMP basically to work in modifications of images of the websites that I develop. It's very practical to modify the size of the images to fit in the web frames. Also I use to draw some simple logos for the webs.

"The best free photo editor"

What do you like best?

Its the best Photoshop alternative for Linux. Despite being Free Open Source this software has a lot of great features. It can open almost any graphic file type. Another feature I like is the filter , you can apply and they give you a profesional look that others do not. And finally the best feature is the multiplaform support because you can use it in almost in any Operating System.

What do you dislike?

If you come from Photoshop the layout it a bit confusing but eventually you will get used to. The interface look a bit outdated , they should give it a more modern look.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since is a free tool you should really try it. I you are a linux user this should be your first choice , but if you are a Windows user you should consider wheter if you wnat to pay a Photoshop license or use this awesome tool for free

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work with Windows and ubuntu and when I have to work in ubuntu I use Gimp. I use for photo editing and also for from scratch creations

What Photo Editing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Useful with a learning curve"

What do you like best?

Gimp has been able to accomplish everything I have needed to do, without the expense of Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

While Gimp is very useful, there is quite a steep learning curve. If you do not have prior experience with image editing software, I strongly recommend watching some instructional videos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read the user manual and watch youtube videos. Gimp does A LOT - I've found it much easier to learn how to do each task as it comes up rather than try to learn how to do everything at once.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Gimp I am able to make simple edits to images such as resizing and cropping. It has also been useful for changing file types, and opening images that default viewers are not able to open. While our marketing team still does the majority of the image editing, being able to quickly do some of the more basic work on my own has saved a lot of time.

"Programa perfecto para ediciones sencillas"

What do you like best?

Una de las mejores cosas de Gimp es que es gratis y fácil de probar. La caja de herramientas es simple y simple para que un principiante aprenda a usarla. Los filtros que vienen con Gimp también se ven muy profesionales y en comparación con muchos programas de diseño gráfico de alto precio. Parece que el software se actualiza regularmente para intentar corregir errores y otros problemas. También hay muchos complementos y scripts diferentes que puede agregar para funciones y herramientas adicionales. En general, la personalización es lo que hace que Gimp sea un gran software.

What do you dislike?

Carece de algunas características pero puede ser comprensible ya que es un programa gratuito. Otro punto que no me gusta es que los filtros se aplican directamente y no se pueden aplicar como otra capa.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomendaría intentarlo si tiene experiencia o no en diseño gráfico y, a su vez, encontrar tutoriales para aprender a usar sus funciones. También es una buena idea registrarse en los foros de la comunidad para obtener más ayuda.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Somos una empresa de diseño gráfico, pero también tenemos algunos programadores que no tienen capacitación en este campo, por lo que lo utilizan para hacer gráficos simples que son necesarios para los proyectos en los que trabajamos.

"Possible replacement for Photoshop"

What do you like best?

GIMP can be operated on Linux Operating System, But Photoshop can not be.Graphics related file can be opened in Gimp. Multiplatform capability and open source availability makes it a better option, for image editing.Selection of colour is the most impressive thing i feel in GIMP. Also, it allows easy manipulation to images.

What do you dislike?

I dont have many negative things regarding GIMP. Earlier i felt that i was having old fashioned aspect of editing, but now they really improved that thing.Just one thing, there must be proper tutorials on their website to guide the user about the various features of the application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are so many templates and other editing oprions that you might dont get into use at the starting, so just look carefully all the options, you will get something very exciting and new in this application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GIMP has been the most viable option, as some companies can not afford to pay a huge amount of money for paid licenses of proprietary software, and above all it is open source and is compatible with all picture formats.

"Not just another image editor"

What do you like best?

GIMP it's a very powerful program to edit draw and edit images. It's like a mix of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and certainly it advance a lot in the last years to be a good alternative.

The first thing that you realize when you use GIMP is the amount of options that you have, but it's easy to deal with them. There are very useful things like the possibility of open a new tool box wherever that you are with mouse, and at different that others image editors, you can have more than one toolbox.

The last thing that matters for me, is the possibility of work with PDF files, modifiing and adding things, without quality lost

What do you dislike?

It's a excellent program, just dislikes me that the standard format that it use for save the files, isn't compatible with other applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a professional image editor, works fast and allows you to do whatever you need. Essential application in all sectors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use GIMP in a lot of occasions; when I'm writing a manual of some application that we do, when I want to modify some PDF, when I want to modify some image.

"Le meilleur, être libre"

What do you like best?

J'adore ce programme. Et c'est gratuit. Gratuit! Aucune version étudiante ou période d'essai. J'ai été en utilisant GIMP pour créer de l'art numérique depuis des années et il aussi bon que n'importe quel programme que j'ai utilisé. Utilisé avec une tablette Wacom, je peux faire des croquis rugueux, travail en ligne fine, et la coloration finale. Pleins dispositifs brosses, sélection de couleur, sensibilité de pression, etc. Les calques sont très polyvalents, et je peux créer des masques, copier et fusionner des masques et des calques. L'outil de sélection est puissant et peut croître et manipuler la sélection. Les couleurs peuvent être corrigées. Et ainsi de suite.

What do you dislike?

Ma tablette Wacom s'écaille beaucoup, où je perds la sensibilité de la pression lors de la première ouverture du programme et doivent fermer et redémarrer.

Je souhaite GIMP a été un meilleur choix et la fermeture de Gap, afin que je puisse faire des remplissages de couleur sans avoir besoin de mon travail en ligne pour être parfait.

Outils pour aider à améliorer Lineart serait bien. Nettoyez le bruit, lissez, etc.

Voudrais différents outils pour créer des lignes de Détroit, de même épaisseur.

Les vecteurs et les tracés de trajectoire prennent beaucoup d'efforts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Je ne mérite pas ce programme merveilleux, libre et polyvalent. Il est agréable de peindre sans être un pirate ou de jeter une tonne à quelque chose à peu près équivalent. J'ai fait des trucs cool avec GIMP.

"Best alternative of Photoshop and First choice of a Linux user."

What do you like best?

Adobe Photoshop is a great tool for graphics editing but sadly it is not available on Linux Operating System. Luckily GIMP comes to rescue. It is Free Open Source software packed with features.

It open almost any file related to graphics.

Its features are well developed from fine tuning images to creating artwork from scratch.

Layering architecture is easy to move around with. Community is active so any kind of doubts get cleared quickly.

What do you dislike?

GIMP provide 90%+ of the features provided by Adobe Photoshop with zero cost but still there are some features that may be left untouched or care less by the community. I hope that difference between Photoshop and GIMP soon disappear.

Interface is Mid level. All tool tabs are independent of each other that result in losing track of tab behind another tab.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GIMP is been a free Image Editing tool solve the problem of providing trainees a licensed graphic editing tool.

Using GIMP we can test the ability of the skill of a trainee before handing him licensed software.

"El mejor editor de imágenes gratuito"

What do you like best?

Es Open Source y multiplataforma, lo que hacen que los programas completos de edición de imágenes sean más asequibles en el mercado, son muy completos e incluyen funciones avanzadas de edición como capas, capas de ajuste, selección de vectores y mucho más ... GIMP cubre las necesidades de edición de imágenes para el 90% los usuarios de programas comerciales y más caros como Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

Me gustaría tener una mejor paleta de fuentes, ya que tiene un modelo muy rígido para la impresión de texto, también sería muy útil una gama más amplia de complementos que me pueden dar otros resultados con capacidad de edición. En comparación con otras editoriales, GIMP es una buena opción, pero no podemos decir que sea la mejor opción que tenemos en el mercado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Incluso si no estás pensando en cambiar tu editor, pruébalo, ¡es gratis e increíble!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trabajos de edición principalmente rápidos, Gimp puede sacarlo fácilmente de algunos problemas cuando no está en una computadora con licencias para las herramientas de edición más serias como Photoshop.

"GIMP es esencial"

What do you like best?

El software GIMP posee una interfaz al alcance de cualquiera, es muy similar a Adobe Photoshop y tiene muchas herramientas en común pero sin coste, que es muy importante en ciertas empresas. Además es muy sencilla de personalizar la disposición de los botones de cada herramienta y permite abrir archivos previamente creados y guardados en Adobe.

What do you dislike?

Este software no dispone del mismo soporte y atención al cliente que Photoshop, debido principalmente a que es gratuito. No es tan intuitivo como Photoshop. En pequeñas ocasiones se cuelga el programa y no hay forma de que vuelva a funcionar, sin más que cerrarlo perdiendo los cambios realizados que no hayan sido previamente guardados.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo encarecidamente leer muchos manuales que puede encontrar en su librería, biblioteca o vía Internet para saber manejar desde lo más básico hasta lo más preciso para obtener los resultados más precisos posibles. Instalar la última versión y activar las actualizaciones automáticas para no tener que hacerlo manualmente ya que estas siempre mejoran algo más el programa y son livianas y no requiere de mucho tiempo de espera. Con sus múltiples herramientas de edición de fotografías, sus brochas y máscaras son altamente recomendables. Además permite visualizar y guardar en varios formatos distintos de imagen, desde el típico JPEG hasta TIFF.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Al principio cuando la empresa no disponía del suficiente capital para la adquisición de todos los programas necesarios, buscamos alternativas y encontramos en GIMP la alternativa perfecta y no tener que pagar nada ha sido una gran ventaja. Podemos realizar diseños desde nuestra empresa y enviárselos a los clientes de forma precisa.

"La mejor alternativa de código abierto a Photoshop"

What do you like best?

Con Gimp tienes 90% de lo que ofrece Photoshop para edición de imágenes a 0% del precio, su valor es imbatible, y si utilizas sistemas operativos basados en Linux es tu mejor opción para edición de material gráfico. La interfaz será bastante familiar a quien esta acostumbrado a Photoshop (principalmente si usaste versiones mas antiguas) asi que no deberían tardar mucho en acostumbrarse con la nueva herramienta... Tiene funciones avanzadas cómo la pluma para selección, la herramienta clonadora, la varita magica y como no, edición por capas.

Gimp me ha sorprendido en su tiempo y sigue haciendo a cada versión.

What do you dislike?

No es Photoshop, si es verdad que Gimp tiene 90% de sus funciones de edición, pero algunas veces estos 10% hacen mucha falta, especificamente diria que las capas de ajuste son la función que mas echo de menos, son muy útiles para edición de fotos, principalmente para cambiar el orden de los efectos y ver los distintos resultados que pueden traer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No dejen de probarlo, principalmente si usas sistemas operativos basados en Linux.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Principalmente edición de imágenes en entorno Linux.

"You cant get any better open source editor"

What do you like best?

Open source and multiplatform make the complete image editing programs more affordable in the market, it is very complete including advanced editing functions such as layers, adjustment layers, vector selection and much more ... GIMP covers the needs of image editing for 90% of the users of commercial and more expensive programs like Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have a better fonts palette, because it has a very rigid model for text printing, it would also be very helpful a wider range of plugins that can give me other results with editing capability. Compared with the other publishers GIMP is a good option but we can not say that it is the best option we have in the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Even if you are not thinking onadopting t, give it a try, is free and awesome!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly quick editing jobs, Gimp can easily take you out of some problems when you are not in a computer with licenses for the more serious editing tools such as Photoshop.

"Gimp, el programa de los ilustradores."

What do you like best?

Una de las posibilidades que nos da este programa de edición y creación de ilustraciones, es la varita mágica, te permite seleccionar aquello que quieres modificar, sin tener que hacer recuadros inexactos que producen resultados imperfectos.

Ademas algo muy sobresaliente de este programa es que es totalmente gratuito y nos da muchas utilidades.

Por otro lado su amplia selección de pinceles permite conseguir distintos resultados, desde pinceles para agua, acuarelas... hasta el mismo trazo de un lápiz grafito, es algo genial.

Gimp puede leer archivos .psd y exportar paletas a Photoshop, incluyendo también formatos SVG para los archivos.

ilustradores con mucha influencia en las redes como Piyoasdf o Happip utilizan este programa frecuentemente, aunque lo acompañan con otros programas de renombre.

What do you dislike?

Gimp es una programa muy completo y hay muy poco que decir acerca de posibles pequeños ''errores'', posiblemente le viniera bien un lavado de cara respecto a la interfaz, lo que menos me llega a gustar de este programa es el contenido, la mayoría esta destinado a un publico anglo parlante, mientras que países como España, Rusia o Alemania, entre otros, tienen un contenido mucho mas escaso sin contar la reducida comunidad que hay detrás de este producto.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Usar Gimp me ha ayudado en muchas tareas y me las ha facilitado, como por el ejemplo al retirar el fondo de los productos a comercializar, la eidición de la saturación y del contraste de las imágenes y el saneamiento de estas.

Su bloqueo de fondo permite crear logos para empresas, si la empresa tiene algo muy relevante puedes añadirlo de forma facil y segura.

Gimp ofrece bastantes soluciones y ayudas que al fin y al cabo nos hace ahorrar tiempo, que en una empresa es algo beneficioso, ya que la producción es mayor.

"Puedes confiar en él"

What do you like best?

Tienes al alcance de la mano paneles de pinceles, capas, caminos y otras herramientas que hacen que la experiencia sea extraordinariamente cómoda. Aprender a usarlo es más fácil que aprender otros softwares. El aspecto es simple e intuitivo. También te proporcionan actualizaciones periódicas, con correcciones y nuevas funciones.

What do you dislike?

La curva de aprendizaje para principiantes es bastante empinada sin mucho material de capacitación disponible. Las operaciones simples tardan mucho tiempo en realizarse por primera vez porque debe buscar en línea una guía de instrucciones para realizar las operaciones. Afortunadamente, he podido encontrar tales guías para cada función que quería usar. Tampoco me gustan todos los menús flotantes. Prefiero que se guarde en una sola ventana, pero tampoco he investigado lo suficiente para ver si esta es una opción que puede cambiarse de forma predeterminada.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

He utilizado GIMP para producir todo tipo de materiales de marketing, como volantes, anuncios impresos, anuncios web, publicaciones en redes sociales, tarjetas de visita y mucho más. Y, por supuesto, es perfecto para editar fotografías para la web y para imprimir. Con GIMP, puedo perfeccionar rápidamente una foto para usar en nuestro boletín informativo o folletos.

"Gimp is a great alternative to elaborate simple designs"

What do you like best?

What I like most about GIMP is that it is a very light program that can be installed on any computer. It does not occupy almost space in the hard disk of my machine. It also offers several tools that make it easy to design or manipulate any image. The selection by color is one that I find most useful.

What do you dislike?

I would like it to have more variety in when to sources to insert text. I think that in that sense the program is very limited. Another disadvantage is that the startup of the program seems very slow. In the same way you should have more tutorial videos on the WEB since sometimes it can be somewhat complex because of the large number of tools that you have...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not hesitate to install this program on your computers. It is very useful and costs nothing. If they have handled other image manipulation programs, they will realize that Gimp has nothing to envy to those programs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this software we have strengthened our capabilities from the institution where I work. With GIMP we have prepared a flyer and posters about our management that we have managed to viralize through our social networks. The best thing is that the program did not cost anything at all. Compared with other programs that have somewhat expensive plans, Gimp is undoubtedly the best option. Free and super useful

"GIMP"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de este programa es que es gratis. Tiene una interfaz muy mejorada en comparación con versiones anteriores, destacan temas para mitigar el medio ambiente, tiene un motor mejorado para la administración del color y lo mejor de todo es la transformación unificada que simplifica la realización de transformaciones múltiples que involucran acciones como rotar, escalar y perspectivas

What do you dislike?

Lo que menos me gusta es que es un programa básico: ofrece muy pocas herramientas, en comparación con otros programas similares, tales como Adobe Photoshop o Adobe Illustrator; sin embargo, este aspecto resulta positivo para aquellas personas que aún están aprendiendo en el campo del diseño gráfico porque es un programa bastante sencillo de usar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Este programa es más que válido para aquellas personas que acaban de comenzar su relación con el diseño gráfico. El aspecto más reseñable es la capacidad de utilizar el programa, en todos sus aspectos, sin necesidad de adquirir licencia alguna, algo que permite conocer cómo funciona el programa, y así, saber si este se adapta a las necesidades de la empresa o persona. Además, es difícil encontrar software libre, puesto que la mayoría (por no decir todos) de los programas similares que existen en la actualidad son de pago; es decir, se requiere adquirir una licencia para que permita utilizar el programa en todas sus funcionalidades: este último caso no se visualiza en Gimp

"Modificare le immagini come un professionista"

What do you like best?

Come programma Open-Source, GIMP ha una comunità molto attiva che lavora per migliorare il programma e aggiungere nuove funzionalità. L'interfaccia è molto intuitiva per semplificare l'editing delle foto rispetto a Photoshop ed è compatibile con una vasta gamma di pennelli di altri utenti online. GIMP è in grado di lavorare con una varietà di file immagine diversi e offre all'utente un notevole controllo sulla compressione dell'immagine. Suona molto bene anche con i plug-in.

What do you dislike?

Mentre GIMP è facile da usare per l'editing semplicistico, le funzioni più avanzate sono più difficili da trovare e meno robuste di quelle trovate in Adobe Photoshop. Il tempo di avvio di GIMP può anche essere un po' più lungo rispetto ad altri programmi. L'editing GIF è molto arcaico, utilizza un sistema a livelli invece di un setup di timeline. Le spazzole stock di GIMP lasciano molto a desiderare, rendendo molto importante scaricare i set di spazzole dal web.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Se conosci un po' di Photoshop, passerai un po' di tempo ad adattarti, ma niente di importante. Una volta che si ottiene il blocco di esso, diventa più facile. Inoltre, è possibile trovare un sacco di aiuto online nel caso in cui non sai come disegnare / modificare qualcosa.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nel caso in cui si è alla ricerca di un convertitore di immagini gratuito, o picture editorial manager, vorrei raccomandare Gimp, è anche un buon editor per cominciare, ha tutto ciò che si richiederebbe al minimo sforzo gratuitamente.

"Programa genial de edicion"

What do you like best?

Gimp siempre ha sido mi aplicación para editar gráficos en computadoras de nivel inferior. Poseo un netbook Windows 10 de 13 "con 2 GB de RAM + 2 GB de memoria RAM virtual, ejecutándose en una CPU Celeron de doble núcleo y 1.6GHz y funciona sorprendentemente bien. Empecé a usar Gimp en la escuela ya que la licencia era gratuita, y siempre mantuve una instalación archivo .exe conmigo en un usb stick. Las últimas actualizaciones son una gran señal de que la comunidad de código abierto es fuerte, y me gustaría vivir para agradecer a todos los que contribuyen al proyecto. Incluye todas las características que alguien necesita para manipular imágenes y incluso soporte para archivos .psd de Photoshop, ¡lo cual es genial para incluir a Gimp en su flujo de trabajo de múltiples dispositivos!

What do you dislike?

Me gustaría que Gimp tuviera una opción para convertir mi arte en un vector ... Actualmente lo hago con Inkscape. Pero, en general, prefiero la usabilidad de Gimp a otros programas.

La interfaz de usuario de Gimp no es tan limpia y utilizable como sus costosos competidores, y algunas de las funciones, filtros y complementos más avanzados tampoco funcionan * bastante *. Pero oye: gratis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si necesita un programa gratuito para editar fotos para uso comercial en línea, Gimp puede ser el camino a seguir. Para uso personal, busque algo más, y si su negocio es serio acerca de la edición de fotos, use Photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lo estoy usando para crear anuncios y gráficos de sitios web para la iglesia en la que trabajo. Como tenemos un presupuesto ajustado, no puedo invertir en costosos programas de diseño. Sin embargo, a pesar de que GIMP es gratuito, hace mucho más que muchos otros programas genéricos y generales de diseño de gráficos y fotografías disponibles en el mercado.

"It is a very useful program to edit and modify images"

What do you like best?

GIMP has several functions that allow you to add filters to the images to give them a more professional style. In the same way, it seems very positive that it is a free program. Without paying a penny we can install a great software that allows us to make designs without so much complexity

What do you dislike?

I really do not have many negative things to say about this software. Some time ago I thought that its interface had a somewhat antiquated aspect, but in the last months I have been able to notice that in the new versions they have improved this aspect...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lean on several tutorials that can be found on pages like you tube. It is a program that has many tools and we can end up losing ourselves in so many functions that it offers. The idea is to have fun while we work

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No doubt GIMP has turned out to be a great choice for the department where I work as a civil engineer. Generally we should take pictures of the spaces in which we do surveys. Sometimes these photos need retouching to highlight certain areas. GIMP is ideal for doing that job.

"GIMP is a very simple and useful software for those who start in the world of graphic design"

What do you like best?

What GIMP likes the most is that it is a free program belonging to the family of free software and at the same time it is very light. It does not occupy much space on my computer's hard drive or require many specifications from the technical point of view. The work area offers several tools that have nothing to envy to other image manipulation softwares. Its interface looks very nice. It has an immense variety of effects and filters that give our work professional character.

What do you dislike?

I think the customer service could improve. This program should have tutorials on its website that help clarify doubts about the operation of the software. It lacks tools with which photoshop has, however I think that to be a free software is just what it offers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GIMP is a very useful program to do simple jobs. On You Tube there are some tutorials that can be very helpful. Learning some keyboard shortcuts or commands can be a great advantage to get the job done faster. At first we can get lost in the large number of herremientas that has this program. However with a little dedication and patience we can learn to use the most functional resources of this program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Without a doubt, the possibility of saving resources by having a program for which we did not have to pay anything is a great advantage. In the same way, being a very simple management program, Promoting employees quickly become familiar with GIMP. We do not have to send simple jobs from the outside. We design them ourselves to show our work through social networks and some web pages.

"Útil y gratuito, pero básico"

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta es que el programa ofrece de forma gratuita todas y cada una de las funcionalidades del mismo, sin necesidad de registrar licencia alguna. Además, la interfaz es bastante intuitiva, lo que hace que trabajar con este programa no suponga una gran dificultad respecto a trabajar con otros tipos de programas similares.

What do you dislike?

Lo que menos me gusta es que es demasiado básico: ofrece muy pocas herramientas, en comparación con otros programas similares, tales como Adobe Photoshop o Adobe Illustrator; sin embargo, este aspecto resulta positivo para aquellas personas que aún están aprendiendo en el campo del Diseño Gráfico.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Gimp es un programa básico que permite, en poco tiempo, lograr llevar a cabo algunos arreglos para los trabajos requeridos. Sin embargo, no lo recomiendo para utilizarlo como programa principal, pues las funcionalidades de las que dispone, bajo mi punto de vista, no son tan completas como las de otros programas similares, como, por ejemplo, Adobe Photoshop. Sin embargo, hay que tener en cuenta que se trata de un programa totalmente gratuito, rasgo que lo diferencia del anteriormente nombrado.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Este programa, dada su simplicidad, y la intuición de la que dispone la interfaz, me permite delegar en otras personas que no tengan conocimientos muy avanzados, a la vez que supone un gran ahorro de tiempo, que puede ser invertido en otras tareas.

"Para ser gratuito es bastante bueno"

What do you like best?

Gimp viene con un conjunto de herramientas profesionales que tiene muchas herramientas de edición diferentes. Estas herramientas son básicamente del mismo tipo que usted puede encontrar es un software de calidad profesional costoso. La configuración general y su aspecto también son muy fáciles de usar. No me tomó mucho tiempo comenzar a aprender a usarlo. También puede encontrar muchos tutoriales en la red. Además es compatible con una amplia gama de tipos de archivos.

What do you dislike?

No me gustan los pinceles estándar que vienen con el programa. No hay mucha selección y muchos de ellos son algo que una persona nunca usaría. Los degradados y patrones que vienen de serie tampoco son muy profesionales. Este es un software desarrollado por la comunidad, por lo que las nuevas características pueden tardar bastante tiempo en aparecer y lleva tiempo descifrar los nuevos errores.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como el programa es completamente gratuito, puede intentarlo fácilmente para decidir si es algo que le gustaría utilizar a largo plazo. Yo, personalmente, recomendaría probarlo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lo uso principalmente para edición de fotos y diseño gráfico, tanto de forma empresarial como personal.

It has a much improved interface compared to previous versions, highlights an oscuto theme to mitigate the environment, has an improved engine for color management and best of all is the unified transformation that simplifies the realization of multiple transformations involving actions such as rotate, Climb and perspective.

What do you dislike?

Learning this software is not easy for novice users. The interface, however, is confusing and should improve it even more. There are many icons on the menus that have virtually no use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Many of the features and tools of GIMP are comparable to those of commercial photo editing programs, including support layers and layer masks, multiple brushes and tools needed specifically for the improvement of photographs, such as the cloning tool or filters that Eliminate barrel distortion. GIMP supports pen tablets and multiple types of image files, such as JPEG, GIF, PNG and TIFF. GIMP is not considered an adequate substitute for commercial editing software for a professional.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company is just expanding and can not afford to pay a large sum of money to obtain paid licenses of proprietary software, so GIMP has been the most viable option, and above all it is free of open source. It is compatible with all image formats, especially with projects made in Adobe Photoshop.

"Diversity"

What do you like best?

I like the dynamic ability of this program to do a multitude of editing. It has the ability to do minute adjustments to photos, as well as broad adjustments. There are multiple layering options to render photos in any way you can think. I enjoy the ability to specify the size in pixels or inches. That dynamic ability can allow you to create images in any way you see fit. I also enjoy the exporting options, they allow you to do very specific things before your photo is exported as a .jpg file extension.

What do you dislike?

It isn't as dynamic as photoshop, however, it is a free program that allows a multitude of editing. I would like more options to create shapes inside the program as well. The lack of insertable shapes can cause issues given that you cannot edit the specific size of selection tools to make mock shapes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a lot of templates in the program that can allow you the ability to start drawings in very specific ways. If you look around you will find many options that you may not realize at first. The image editing menu is a great tool location as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows me to edit down to the pixel. I can sharpen the images, bring up the quality of a render, as well as the ability to save in multiple file extensions. The ease of use allows many problems to be solved in extremely short time frames.

"Is a cross-platform image editor, lightweight and great tools "

What do you like best?

GIMP is an image editor, the PhotoShop counterpart, you can edit photographs and drawings. This app is free and free, it's open source under the GNU General Public License. One of its advantages is that it has a lot of documentation and a large community in the network that always helps people who start using this application. It'is oriented to graphic design. It should also be noted that it is a cross-platform image editor available for GNU/Linux, Windows, OS X, and more operating systems This program supports most graphic files such as; jpg, gif, png, tiff, you can import files in pdf format and vector images in svg format. It also has its own storage format, the "xcf.", one of the most powerful applications for image editing, besides supporting channels, layers, and filters, a variety of transformation tools, brushes and textures. GIMP supports pencil tablets. You can add new scripts and plug-ins at no cost, including GIMP has plugins to run Photoshop plugins.It's faster, more efficient and more powerful than other existing apps aimed at editing images, besides being very adaptable.

What do you dislike?

You can't manage images in RAW format, and usually photographers use this format, in terms of manual handling of white balance, it has an automatic module and to do it manually you have to use several 3 modules. Photoshop has many more features and its interface is much more intuitive with a high range of usability. GIMP needs to improve the poorer text editing compared to photoshop

Recommendations to others considering the product

GIMP is lightweight, with great potential and a very active community, currently has a new version 2.10 that brings impressive improvements, you can add new scripts and even plug-ins that you use in photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's Free, open source which allows greater freedom for its users saves the costs of the license, is powerful and requires fewer hardware resources than photoshop.

"Powerful image editing but not so easy to use"

What do you like best?

Cost savings. Gimp is FREE! image editing software but you can also do batch processing. You can open pretty much any file type and do file type conversions. The only serious competition in this space is Adobe, which is definitely not free.

What do you dislike?

It's not as intuitive as other image editors and has a longer learning curve. Also probably not what I would recommend for photo editing. This program feels like it moves very slowly at times (like it's thinking).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Gimp is open-source, which means new features are constantly getting added and even though the controls may take longer to learn, it's a very powerful image manipulation tool. I highly recommend this product to anyone with professional needs and especially to students and those who do not want to spend money on software. BUT... give yourself time to learn.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Image editing, file conversion, shipped with company product as additional image editor

"GIMP graphic designer that outperforms the competition for free"

What do you like best?

GIMP it's made for windows, linux and many other OS, that is a great advantage! also it's free, that's the best of it of course but also the updates are free too, there is no paid version. GIMP is kind of like a free Photoshop. It’s designed to incorporate many of the filters, tools, and photographic effects you get from Photoshop, but it doesn’t cost you a penny to use. That’s pretty awesome.

What do you dislike?

GIMP is free, but it’s also highly technical. You won’t understand how to use it right away, and good luck reading the documentation. Photoshop is easy to use and easy to understand. Free software “works,” but you often have to learn a lot more about it in order to use it properly. It tends to have been built by some very technically minded people, and that usually leaves the ordinary consumer feeling totally lost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Being free software, if you don't have any design software yet, using GIMP will open up work opportunities for you by telling the company that they won't have to pay for a subscription to a paid design software, so you'll gain experience and have more possibilities in any job or job interview.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Been using GIMP for years and it fulfills all my needs. We save money in our company because we don't have to pay for a subscription from another paid graphic designer, because I am an expert in graphic design I learned GIMP and they are all advantages.

"Útil para principiantes"

What do you like best?

Lo que más me llama la atención de este programa es la facilidad con la que se pueden modificar y/o crear imágenes: con unos ligeros conocimientos sobre el tema, se pueden conseguir desarrollar trabajos casi profesionales.

What do you dislike?

Lo que menos me gusta es que el programa no dispone de distintos niveles de dificultad: bajo mi punto de vista, debería contener un nivel más bajo para principiantes, y otro más alto para aquellas personas que hayan avanzado, y tengan unos conocimientos más amplios que otras personas que acaban de comenzar a utilizar el programa.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Este programa es más que válido para aquellas personas que acaban de comenzar su relación con el diseño gráfico. El aspecto más reseñable es la capacidad de utilizar el programa, en todos sus aspectos, sin necesidad de adquirir licencia alguna, algo que permite conocer cómo funciona el programa, y así, saber si este se adapta a las necesidades de la empresa o persona. Además, es difícil encontrar software libre, puesto que la mayoría (por no decir todos) de los programas similares que existen en la actualidad son de pago; es decir, se requiere adquirir una licencia para que permita utilizar el programa en todas sus funcionalidades: este último caso no se visualiza en Gimp

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Este programa me ha permitido lograr solucionar problemas relacionados con la diferencia de compatibilidad de colores de la pantalla del ordenador, respecto al aspecto que muestra esta imagen en el momento en que se imprime.

"No hay mejor editor de fotos de código abierto multiplataforma!"

What do you like best?

Código abierto y multiplataforma hacen de los programas de edicion de imagenes completos más asequibles del mercado, es muy completo incluyendo funciones avanzadas de edición como capas, capas de ajustes, selección vectorial y mucho más... GIMP cubre sobrado las necesidades de edición de imagen para el 90% de los usuarios de programas comerciales y más caros como Photoshop.

Además el facto de ser multiplataforma lo convierte en prácticamente la única buena opción para ordenadores ejecutando distribuciones GNU/Linux... incrementando aun más sus ventajas frente a opciones comerciales muchisimo mas caras.

What do you dislike?

A pesar de ser un software bastante competente, no llega a ser un Photoshop... si, es difícil exigir el mismo nivel de recursos de un software gratis pero más difícil es encontrar algo que quejarse de ese programa, es simplesmente fantástico.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No piensen 2 veces, es gratis, de codigo abierto, multiplataforma y atiende perfectamente a la necesidad de 90% de los usuarios de Photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tenemos un número limitado de licencias para el Adobe Creative Cloud así que utilizamos GIMP para ediciones de fotos cuando los ordenadores con licencia de Photoshop están ocupados.

"A good alternative"

What do you like best?

What I liked the most about GIMP is free software, that is, anyone can collaborate to make it better.

In addition it is a multiplatform program can work in several operating systems.

Also needs very little space in our hard drive and memory, which makes it faster in its execution.

What do you dislike?

One of the things I disliked about GIMP is that it has fewer features than other payment tools. Also that it is little known, and community and help is not as common as I would like.

At first, the graphical interface may confuse the new user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider GIMP as a good alternative in you daily basics confronting little or big needs about design or editing in your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With GIMP you can solve little needs you need in your daily basics without wasting so much money and time. Also without need a very strong hardware.

"Good design tool"

What do you like best?

The most important feature is that this program is GNU (free) with enough options to be compared to photoshop. It has a portable version, very light capable of running on every computer.

You will be capable to do any kind of edit or create from zero a new image.

The best feature is the multilayer interface, arguably one of the best in the market, allowing the user to speed the edit process without sacrifice performance.

What do you dislike?

The worst part about this program is the fact that in order to have all functionalities actives you have to download and install a big package of plug-ins .

All specific and custom features are added by plug-ins

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn as soon as posible to integrate plug-ins

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

-Image edit and customization by client

-Image exposure, rendering, customization.

"design and color as an expert: Gimp"

What do you like best?

If you need to design, illustrate, transform images or color them, your tool is Gimp. It does not matter that you do not have the skills of a painter, this tool has them for you. With it, you can transform images, change them in size, lengthen them, shrink them to fit the size you need. This tool has a lot of functions to do with your images, practically anything, sometimes it's just a matter of having good taste, because Gimp has everything you want: with the option: transform images: you can crop, scale , and give any shape to your images. With the "Paint Tools" you can give color effects to your images, draw freehand, give effects of erasure, clone pate of the image, copy colors or drip the color. With the "color tools" you can make color transformations of your images: balance the light, change the colors, change the effects of saturation of the colors, effects of brightness and posterization, and best of all, is that before accepting the effects that you apply, you can see a preview of what will be the final result. In the section "filters" you have more than 100 options to give special effects to your images: with GIMPressionist-Flowerbed you can become Monet, with GIMPressionist-Cubism you will be Picasso and with GIMPressionist-Patchwork, you will be your grandma. It is a great tool, excellent also for the design of icons or images for buttons, headers, backgrounds and borders for applications. It is also open source, works on Windows, Linux or OS X and many programmers who contribute to make this application one of the best.

What do you dislike?

the scalar function does not work well when you need to enlarge a lot. could improve algorithms that work with image scaling functions and improve their accuracy

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you can imagine it, Gimp designs it for you

"A Great Program to Start and Learn on."

What do you like best?

I like that this program is a simple to understand and basic version of many of the art programs out there today. It's overall simplicity lends to a new user of such software. The fact that it is free to learn on is also a massive plus.

What do you dislike?

My dislikes stem from my major likes of this program. Yes the program is simplistic but it is because of that I would have to look else where to do some of the more elaborate projects that I come across.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a simply piece of software, that is easy to pickup, easy to understand, and easy to use, this is one for you to add to your tool kit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The greatest benefit I have found is the ability to bring someone up to speed, who has had no prior background with digital art software, very quickly and easily. I feel that there are other possible benefits with this program and I feel that as time progresses I will find more and more from an educational and learning stand point.

"Great graphic design and editing program"

What do you like best?

I've been using GIMP for years for both personal and business use and I love it. Its a great, free, alternative to using Photoshop and offers many options for designing. You can create and edit images and then save and export them as various file types. I also like that I was able to teach myself to use the program and that it is easy to search for tutorials on the web to help when you need to learn to do something on GIMP.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything that I don't like about using GIMP. Over the years I have not had any issues using it. As long as I keep doing the updates as they are made and put on the website I don't think I will have any issues in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Search for videos on how to use the program and check with GMP community members who have answered questions you may have. Be sure to do updates if it has been a while since you have downloaded the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With GIMP being a free program I haven't had to ask for money in our budget to purchase it. In the past I had tried to ask to purchase a graphic design program but was denied as it is not necessary for my position. From time to time I need to do some image manipulation and this is my go to program.

Lo que más me gusta de Gimp es que todas las funcionalidades que ofrece el programa son gratuitas, por lo que no se necesita de ninguna licencia para acceder a las herramientas del programa.

What do you dislike?

Lo que menos me gusta es que echo en falta un mayor número de herramientas, pues las que se ofrecen me resultan demasiado básicas. De hecho, Adobe Illustrator o Photoshop están más especializados en el diseño gráfico.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Gimp es un programa que ofrece funcionalidades básicas de forma totalmente gratutita. Estas herramientas resultan bastante útiles para aquellos casos en los que se requiere una cierta inmediatez, sin necesidad de obtener un resultado totalmente profesional.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Free, Effective Design Tool"

What do you like best?

Since I work in a small company without licenses for Photoshop, I use GIMP in two ways: to edit photoshop files that others send to me and so I can do quick touch ups, color manipulation, and masking. The best thing about the product is of course its price -- it's free. There are a lot of tutorials out there regarding use and for beginners it's definitely easier to learn than Photoshop is. Also, if I already knew how Photoshop worked, and because there are a lot similarities getting used to GIMP was a breeze. This program is great for someone who wants to step up from the built-in editing tools in Photos or other native apps.

What do you dislike?

The layout is a bit confusing if you've used Photoshop in the past. Also, since it is a free product, it doesn't have some of the more power tools that Photoshop does -- so you getting what you pay for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can easily change photos' contrast, the light balance, and perform quick transforms to make sure they are client ready. I can work on photoshop files others send me without having to pay for the product.

"Good alternative design program."

What do you like best?

Gimp is a very straightforward design program. I like how the tools are laid out. The tools include many different tools that can be found on other more advanced design software. The filters look really nice and there is a large selection to choose from. You can also customize your own filter and save them. I also like how the software is compatible with many different types of files.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the layout of Gimp. I can be very hard to learn when you are first starting with a design program. I also do not like the brushes and the brush engine that comes with the software. The brushes do not have a lot of good presets to choose from. I have also found at times that brushes will lag slightly. The text editing features also do not work very well. I find it very hard to preview and edit text.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend others to try gimp. Start by watching tutorials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use gimp for my graphic design work. Gimp is a free software and it is updated regularly so it has benefited me by not adding an additional cost.

"Great free software for design."

What do you like best?

Gimp comes with a professional toolset that has many different editing tools in it. These tools are basically the same type that you can find is expensive professional grade software. The overall setup and look gimp is also very user friendly. It did not take me a long time to start learning how to use it. There are also a lotto user so you can find many tutorials online. It is also compatible with a wide range of file types.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the standard brushes that come with gimp. There is not much of a selection and many of the are something that a person would never use. The gradients and patterns that come standard with gimp are also not very professional looking. This is a community developed software, so new features can take a really long time to come out and it takes a while to work out the new bugs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since gimp is free you can easily try it to decide if it is something that you might want to use long term. I would recommend trying it out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use gimp for photo editing and graphic design.

"Outstanding free photo editing software to rival Photoshop"

What do you like best?

As someone who used Adobe CS when I got it free through my job, I have a lot of experience with high-dollar creative software. In my current position, I don't have access to a license (and don't really need one), but GIMP is more than enough for my needs. It allows you to edit files that come from Photoshop (.PSD) and to do most of the things I need (layers, export in multiple formats, etc.).

What do you dislike?

It's definitely a free product, so don't expect super high-end interface or support, but it's incredibly powerful and has great support from the developer and lots more around the internet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend a little time familiarizing yourself with the basics, especially if you're coming from Photoshop. It does most of the things PS does, but many of them are named differently or look different. It's worth just googling the functions you use in PS followed by "GIMP" to figure them out rather than stumble around looking.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this to produce various graphics for a Linguistics program and occasionally for use in linguistic geography presentations.

"Free photo editing software"

What do you like best?

Gimp can do just about anything that Photoshop can do, although it is a bit more cumbersome to use. But it is free software download with many features which would be useful to individuals, businesses, and organizations that need photo editing software, but don't have the funds to purchase.

What do you dislike?

Gimp isn't as user-friendly as Photoshop or other photo editing software. Instead of saving the file you've been working on, you have to export it to get it in JPEG or PNG formats.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read the help manual, and take the time to learn the ins and outs of the program. While it's not as user friendly as I'd like, it has the capacity to do about anything you need when it comes to photo adjustments and graphics creation. If you're not sure, it's a free download, so it's worth a look.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gimp can help you convert color profiles, adjust brightness/contrast, work with layers, etc. with the purpose of creating vibrant photos and graphics for your organization. Since it's free, budgetary constraints are not a problem.

"good software to photo editing."

What do you like best?

I like that it is a relatively easy software to use. It isn't as complex as Adobe Photoshop, and will obviously be limited in some ways, but most things can be figured out using google.

Learning how to use it is easier than Learning other softwares. The look is simple and intuitive. Also they provide you regular updates, with fixes and new features.

What do you dislike?

I would like for Gimp to have an option for me to turn my art into a vector... Currently I do that with Inkscape. But overall, I prefer the usability of Gimp to other programs.

The UI for Gimp is not nearly the clean and usable as its pricey competitors, and some of the more advanced features, filters and plug-ins don't work *quite* as well. But hey: free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do not have the possibility to access more "noble" but also more expensive instruments, this can be a valid solution. Consider however the fact that you will have to waste a lot of time learning how to use it and where all the tools you really need are.

If you don't have a lot of experience with other photo editors, it can be tricky to navigate and learn how to use different features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was initally going to have to spend almost up to $500 hiring a graphic designer for my sample library interfaces. But GIMP alone has allowed me to easily design my interfaces by myself. I am thankful for GIMP and it's easy to use interface, as well as it's low price of FREE!

"A Graphic Design Software better than most, but still missing features"

What do you like best?

GIMP is a great graphic design software, because it lets you manipulate the image using many of the same features found in Photoshop. You can create layers, edit and create shapes, cute images intelligently to then overlay over layers, angle and change perspectives of images, use countless paint brushes and shapes, paint exact colors and more. And for people new to the software, there are endless tutorials to teach you how to use the software. Both the program and the training are free.

What do you dislike?

My main dislike for GIMP is the lack of some features, including text manipulation, stronger selection tools, and an easier UI.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GIMP is a great program for those looking to take a deeper step into graphic design before committing to purchase and use Photoshop. Photoshop definitely does more than GIMP can do, but most of the features it is missing is not necessary except for serious graphic designers. Give GIMP a try to learn how to do layering and manipulation of images first, and if you need more editing features, consider the step beyond it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using it to create advertisements and website graphics for the church I work at. Since we are on a tight budget, I am not able to invest in expensive design programs. However, even though GIMP is free, it does so much more than many other generic and general photo and graphic design software programs available on the market.

"Un editor clásico, de fácil uso y de excelentes resultados"

What do you like best?

Disfruto de contar con GIMP ya que mi experiencia en diseño gráfico esta todavía en una fase beta y gracias a esta herramienta he podido ir adquiriendo conocimiento y aportando nuevos enfoques creativos a mi trabajo. Cuenta con un interfaz didáctico y una manejabilidad de capas bastante provechosa. Una pieza fundamental para aquellos que se aventuran en el diseño y no quieren enfrentarse a lo dificultoso que puede ser dominar PS.

Cuenta con muchas herramientas dignas de softwares de alta gama y puedes generar nuevos patrones derivados de los iniciales que provee GIMP.

What do you dislike?

me gustaria que tuviese una mejor paleta de fuentes, debido a que cuenta con un modelo muy rigido para la impresión de texto, tambien seria de mucha ayuda una gama mas amplia de plugins que puedan brindarme otros resultados con capacidad de edición. En comparación con los otros editores GIMP es una buena opción pero no podemos decir que es la mejor opción que tenemos en el mercado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Les recomiendo tomar iniciativa con el software GIMP y experimenta la diferencia y lo divertido que puede ser trabajar utilizando esta herramienta. También podrás exigirle cuanto quieras y podras sentirte complacido al final de obtener un buen resultado gráfico.

"Perfect for graphic design"

What do you like best?

One of the best things about Gimp is that it is free and easy to try. The toolbox is very straightforward and simple for a beginner to learn how to use. The filters that come with Gimp also look very professional and comparable to many high priced graphic design programs. It seems like the software is updated regularly to try and fix bugs and other problems. There are also many different plugins and scripts that you can add for extra features and tools. Overall, the customization is what makes Gimp such a great software.

What do you dislike?

Gimp can run very slow when you have a large format project file you are editing. The brushes and patterns that come with the toolbox are pretty limited. Gimp also does not support sixteen bit channel color. Since the program is mainly developed and ran through a community of user, this can cause a few bugs and glitches. Overall, I wish the initial program came with more features, but I have not had very many big issues with GImp.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend anyone to try Gimp.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Gimp for graphic design. The versatility of the feature offer through Gimp have benefited me by providing enhanced productivity and creativity.

"Graphical editing solution for once and a while if not willing to pay"

What do you like best?

FREE. I always love free. For being free, it does a whole lot of things. If you aren't in graphic design as a business, but need something more powerful than MS Paint occasionally, and you are usually okay at figuring software out on your own, this is what you get. I've used it for years and it has been good for almost everything I need it for.

What do you dislike?

It is not easy to figure out how to use. It also lacks a certain gracefulness that is hard to quantify. The user interface is not appealing to me, though I don't really care that much about that. Also, I don't think it does RGB to CMYK conversion, which is one of the main reasons I ended up paying some money for Affinity Designer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it is free, so it won't set you back any if you dislike it. Good for occasional users, but lacks some things that make it insufficient for more serious graphic designers, I think. Even I am not in the graphic design industry and eventually bought Affinity Designer (which is very inexpensive).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tons of features for graphic image manipulation for FREE. You can't go wrong with that. It has helped me design posters and bookmarks, marketing materials.

"Gimp is good for photo manipulation"

What do you like best?

I am a professional photographer and I use gimp for different photo manipulations. It is a very easy software to work with. I like the brush engine, and how it comes with a wide selection of brushes. You can also import brushes or make your own. Anther thing that I like is the color correction and level settings you can do with gimp. It can make average photos look professional.

What do you dislike?

One thing that I really dislike about gimp is the text edit feature. It is really hard to edit text after you have added it to an image. I also dislike the options for vectors. It is very had to import a vector from an outside source and be able to edit it within gimp. It is also very hard to create vectors in gimp.

I would recommend giving Gimp a try.

"GIMP's my Photo Editor of CHOICE!"

What do you like best?

GIMP is a great free alternative to Adobe Photoshop, and comes with a huge array of professional quality functions for fine tuning images and photos, and creating your own artwork from scratch. GIMP comes with a wide selection and montage features, various ways to retouch your images, cropping, noise reduction and color adjustment tools, customization brushes, gradients and so much more. There's plenty for the more advanced user, too, including layer masks, filters and even an animation package

What do you dislike?

GIMP's interface is a little cluttered and hard to learn. But once you do, it rivals any other photo editing software on the market today. There are not too many online tools available for tutorials.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since it's free. I highly recommend it. Although it does take a while to get used to. It doesn't hurt to try it out since it's free. You can always uninstall the program if it's too difficult to use

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A great FREE alternative photo editing tool. Not having to pay for software greatly helps our business. Everyone at our office likes the program. But as I stated before, the learning curve is pretty sharp, so be prepared for a lot of questions from new users.

"A Gimp experience "

What do you like best?

I like that Gimp is open source, free and easy to download. The UI is understandable and easy to work with if you are looking to make some quick editing to a picture you're about to upload on social media or your companies website or whatever other task you have. It has a good learning pattern and many people that want to get into design can start by using Gimp as their first program. Another great thing about gimp is that it can support almost any format you wish.

What do you dislike?

Filters are a bit of an issue in this program for they are applied directly to the text/picture/layer instead of creating a different layer for the filter, which differences it from other designers software that we know. Can be slow and not as many featured as its colleges like Photoshop, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a young designer or new to design it is a great alternative to start somewhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Gimp to make creative design which i post in websites that sells merchendise with designs from other artists like Redbubble, or Printful. It's a nice way to make some extra bucks and also experiment with your work in the mean time you get motivated to work more and more. I also have an Instagram account where i post artistic pieces, photo remixes and drawings where Gimp offers a big help in making this remixes.

"Good for basic design tasks"

What do you like best?

It has all the basic tools and there are loads of tutorials on YouTube so it's easy to get up to speed. It's a great tool for startups because it's free.

What do you dislike?

Generally people are less familiar with GIMP compared to Photoshop so it's a learning curve for everyone in your organisation as they get up to speed and learn the tool. If you need something done quickly, chances are, someone in your organisation will know Photoshop and can just get on with it.

The name also leads to some raised eyebrows when people come across it for the first time :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a professional designer of course you're going to prefer Photoshop but if you're looking to do basic design tasks then GIMP is perfectly adequate and it's free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been using GIMP to design our business cards and social media headers

"Gimp is a good and free photo editor"

What do you like best?

Gimp is free and open source. It offers you a large variety of professional and novice editing tools. It also good for graphic composition and design. So Gimp provides a good alternative to the expensive software on the market. After a series of updates finally you have the possibility to edit the text directly on the picture, working easily on font size and font type, along with the color and alignment.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunely with Gimp you have no real help or understanding of the platform if you are not familiar with photo editing or a novice. The interface can be really stressful and your workflow compromise. Also when you start Gimp you have to wait a considerable amount of time for the loading process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to take the complete control over the editing process consider GIMP and the variety of tools that can help you improve your work. The software still remain a good option for a good price : free !

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use GIMP when I editing specific pictures and I want to have an entire control on the process. specifically manipulating the channels. I do not use it often, but when I need it I use it everytime with great results.

"The best photo editor "

What do you like best?

I really like GIMP. May not completely replace Photoshop, at least not for me, it's absolutely something every serious artist should have installed on their computer. It has a modern and brigth user interface and it is very easy to use. I also like they offer you multiplatfrom suppor , you can use it in Windows or you can use it in Linux

What do you dislike?

GIMP has come a long way in terms of usability and stability. But, like all software, it has a few bugs and some strange quirks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend to read the official tutorials to get started.It is a free program and you will not be disappointed

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it to create designs and to make edit on photos.

"Almost as good as Photoshop, and free to boot"

What do you like best?

I used Photoshop before I ever touched GIMP previously. And you know what, GIMP is great, especially for its price: FREE. When I'm between more expensive jobs as a freelance developer and am not paying for a Photoshop, I'll use GIMP to get simple things done.

What do you dislike?

Coming from Photoshop, GIMP didn't seem very intuitive at first. I was so used to how Adobe had things laid out, that GIMP took me a moment to figure out. It's capable of more complex image editing just like Photoshop, but seems to lack the professional environment and integration that is helpful when integrating with larger projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you were thinking of paying for image editing software, give GIMP a try first. More than likely it can satisfy all of your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use GIMP primarily as a simple image editor. It benefits someone greatly that doesn't have the resources to pay for an Adobe Photoshop subscription cost. It's a powerful tool and I barely scratch the surface of its capabilities. GIMP continues to update their software and bridge the gap between it and Photoshop.

"Gimp Your Way To Great Design"

What do you like best?

Gimp is a great way to create stunning graphics, edit photos, and design eye catching ads. I love the ease of use of the shape tools and the variety of tools.

What do you dislike?

Where Gimp falls short is its less than intuitive design. The tools require more instruction and direction from the operator than tools found in the Adobe suite. That said Gimp is free and is more than adequate for most basic design projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use GIMP for your business if you are looking for a low cost yet dependable program for your basic design needs. If you are willing to invest time rather than money in a design program, GIMP is a great resource.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I create great designs with which to market my business. I love it.

"Basic Free Photoshop"

What do you like best?

The core features of Photoshop are present here, so you can get a similar style of editing done.

What do you dislike?

It's not as intuitive as Photoshop, nor as advanced.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't come in expecting a fully advanced photo editor like Adobe Photoshop. This is meant to be a freeware alternative, which means that it's not as robust as the payware. After all, "you get what you pay for", and since you aren't paying for GIMP, then expectations should definitely be kept in order. Nevertheless, it's still a great piece of software to use and gets the job done. You may have to look up a few tutorials for certain things, but there's quite a lot out there on YouTube, so getting around the program will eventually become easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's nice having a freeware program instead of shelling out a lot of money for payware.

"Great alternative to PS"

What do you like best?

It's free, open source and a great alternative to Adobe Photoshop. Honestly, it's probably the best free alternative to Photoshop. When times are tough and money is an issue, it's great to have a program that includes many of Photoshop's features. GIMP has a huge array of professional tools for users to pick up and create with! The interface is very customizable and just recently I learned how to use it with Python (thank you, programmer hubbie!)

What do you dislike?

I dislike that smaller, free-to-use programs sometimes don't get the credit they deserve due to marketing, word of mouth or because it just isn't the "popular" program to use. While Photoshop and the Adobe Creative Suite is the top dog in the design world, (and for many great reasons as well) I only wish GIMP had more community help/support. There aren't many guides out there on how to use GIMP effectively, which makes the learning curve quite steep.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GIMP provides a nice alternative to Photoshop that just also happens to be the right price: free. But if you need to use professional tools that receive updates often and have a lot of support, it may not be for you. I would definitely give it a try and see if it can replace the hole in your wallet!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to not worry if my pocketbook will enjoy a monthly fee or not. I can easily install GIMP on my work computers and it will not cost me an arm and a leg!

"Gimp provides almost every feature I need for graphic and photo editing."

What do you like best?

The color selection features on Gimp are my favorite. I love that I can make huge or minor selections easily with the click of a button.

What do you dislike?

I would like for Gimp to have an option for me to turn my art into a vector... Currently I do that with Inkscape. But overall, I prefer the usability of Gimp to other programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Gimp has a surprisingly helpful selection of tools, and there are so many user tutorials on YouTube for those who are just getting started. The price is unbeatable (free!)... Definitely worth the investment of time it takes to learn how to navigate the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gimp is a solid product that allows me to edit and design logos, graphics, and other art for my graphic design business. It's selection features allow me to make big or small edits with precision and to modify colors as necessary. When used in tandem with Inkscape, I have all of the tools that I need for my work.

"Gimp is great for a free software. "

What do you like best?

I like how easy gimp is to use. It is free and it offers just as many features as photoshop and other extensive editing software. Gimp has basically the same layout and design that photoshop has. The text editing feature in Gimp is a lot better than other photo editing text editors. There are a lot of plugins that work great.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how Gimp doesn't have a lot of filters or presets for photos. You have to know what levels you want when editing photos and it can take a lot of playing around with before you get what you want. However, this is expected with a free software. I don't like how you can't add other outside plugins to Gimp.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Gimp is free and easy to try out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Gimp to help in photo editing.

"Great alternative to Photoshop"

What do you like best?

Gimp has an interface that is similar to Photoshop, and provides many of the same tools. It's a good choice for anyone who wants a lot of Photoshop capabilities without paying for it.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't integrate with photoshop well at all. The editable function of PSDs isn't preserved that well when opened in Gimp. Worst of all is that all text is rasterized when opened in Gimp. That means that all text has to be re-created in Gimp, which takes a lot of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a powerful software, Gimp might not be your best bet. In my mind there's no replacing Photoshop. However, Gimp is an excellent solution for users who need basic functionality or a simple and temporary alternative to Photoshop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to provide my clients with a platform to edit their templates going forward, which saves them money.

"Used as a Free Alternative for use on a Mac"

What do you like best?

I started using Gimp as a free alternative to Photoshop for use on a Mac at an office I was not normally in. I normally use my own equipment but this particular week I was without it and I loved that I could just download Gimp for free and it worked very exceptionally well for a program I picked up for free. I loved that it started up a bit faster than photoshop as well. The fact that it runs a little more ram efficient allows me to use it on my laptop more fluidly for quick edits.

What do you dislike?

There was a bit of a learning curve since I have always been an Adobe product user. Being free there is also some weird brush smoothness quirks compared to Photoshop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use Gimp if your a student on a tight budget, on a laptop with low ram or have a Mac (works great on both PC and MAC).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it in an emergency setting where I didn't have my own equipment for edited photos.

"Simple image editor for normal usage"

What do you like best?

GIMP it'a a vectorial image editor that does what I need and it's totally free. There are much options that normally I don't use, but for advanced users can be useful. It's similar to Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop but a bit simpler.

What do you dislike?

The native format that works GIMP it's different of other image editors, and isn't JPG/PNG... so you need to export the images and import again to deal with the formats.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For general use it's a good option. Much better that other typical option how is MS Paint. Totally recommendable for new users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use for little tasks like for example, draw things for manuals of applications, edit PDFs to update some information, edit some photo, etc.

"Awesome free image editor"

What do you like best?

I love GIMP. I have used it for years professionally and personally. It has a bit of a learning curve, but once you start learning the tips and tricks, you have unlimited potential with what you can make. There are a lot of tools that you can use to transform your image into whatever you would like it to be.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the toolbars disappear and I cannot get them to re-dock where I want them to. Some of the tool or features are not very intuitive and take a little trial and error to figure out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It provides me with a tool that I can create business images and flyers with that I would generally have to outsource to someone else for a lot of money. It provides me with enough power and tools to create what I want in-house and for a much lower cost (free!).

"Don't be Fooled by the Gimpy Name of This Photo Editing Software! The Gimp Actually Outshines!"

What do you like best?

First things first : Gimp is free! Gimp is an open sourced/free photo editing tool that in some technical ways even rises above many others that aren't. It is almost a little gem of photo editing tools that is an undiscovered secret that in some ways is not more well known in the graphics world of computer photo manipulation.

What do you dislike?

There have been some developers and computer photo manipulators that have complained that Gimp can sometimes be slower on occasion when executing certain higher memory commands, and also minor glitches which also pop up. It is probably well advised if one were to download and take the Gimp for a test drive to possibly use a slightly older version that isn't up to date right at the moment, until most of the kinks are ironed out. Of course that can be with any program, including paid ones like Photoshop! This still is a minor complaint , since it free and totally amazing for what it can accomplish for being that way!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main benefit that we obviously noticed is that we can cut back a little financially in the software upgrading/general buying aspect since Gimp is free. It's a nice little problem of how to be more cost effective and Gimp tackled that!

"A great free alternative to Adobe Photoshop"

What do you like best?

GIMP is simple to use and easy to learn. The controls are simple and intuitive. Tools are grouped into useful dropdown bars, and I find the interface much easier to understand than Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

GIMP isn't quite as powerful as Photoshop, and has a limited filter option. When I'm editing pictures of humans, I use Photoshop's Liquify tool to tweak faces, and then return to GIMP for the rest of the editing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd definitely recommend GIMP to anyone looking for a photo editor who doesn't have access to an Adobe license.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GIMP allows me to edit pictures on all of my devices for free. It is powerful and easy to use, and I highly recommend it. The initial window setup is inconvenient, but a little option-tweaking and you're on your way.

"GIMP A great free graphic design software."

What do you like best?

Familiar panels for layers, brushes, tools, paths and many others. Individual tabs can be booted (although it requires using a command in the palette menu instead of Adobe's most intuitive action), so you can adjust GIMP UI almost as much as Photoshop can.

The Tools menu brings together a mixed bag of the same tools that are in the Toolbox, in addition to some tools that Adobe puts in the Image menu, such as Cut. It also provides a window to some of the very powerful and extensible GUI transformations that GIMP allows.

What do you dislike?

The missing GIMP text menu is a clue that its text capability, while very competent, is not as feature rich as Photoshop. Lack of some of the luxury design options, as well as all the built-in effects and deformations of Photoshop. The good news is that there are GIMP plug-ins that will restore many of the missing features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Well friends, I personally recommend you get the most out of this great graphic design software.

Unfortunately, some of the icons, like the one in the clipping tool shown, are different from those used by Photoshop, so finding your favorite can take hunting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a freelance graphic designer GIMP has helped me in many of my projects.

GIMP has given me many advantages one of them is that it gives me an excellent design software almost at the height of Photoshop totally free.

"Gimp para retocar las fotos de mis catalogos."

What do you like best?

El gimp es el programa que más me ha gustado de todos los que he aprendido a manejar este año en clase.

Sirve para editar imágenes, añadir efectos, hacer retoques, colorear fotos en blanco y negro o hacer montaje, al igual que haríamos en otros programas como Adobe Photoshop o bien Corel Draw...PERO LO MEJOR DE TODO ES QUE GIMP ES GRATUITO!!!. Es fácil de instalar y de manejar y en pocos minutos podrás ponerte un tatuaje, arreglar aquellas fotos veladas y quitar el color amarillo de los dientes o rojo de los ojos. Es genial.

Es software libre y funciona en windows o en linux!

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me gusta es que a veces se bloquea, el manejo de las capas requiere de paciencia y esfuerzo para llegar a ser comprendido y si vienes de photoshop te costará un poquito hacerte a los cambios. También es verdad que tarda mucho en arrancar y puede llegar a desesperar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es un programa muy recomendable, por poco profesional puedes tener una herrramienta de retoque fotográfico casi profesional en casa o en el colegio.

Open source and multiplatform make the total picture altering programs more reasonable in the market, it is exceptionally entire including propelled altering capacities, for example, layers, alteration layers, vector choice and considerably more ... GIMP covers the requirements of picture altering for 90% of the clients of business and more costly projects like Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

I might want to have a superior textual styles palette, since it has an exceptionally inflexible model for content printing, it would likewise be extremely useful a more extensive scope of modules that can give me different outcomes with altering ability. Contrasted and alternate distributers GIMP is a decent choice however we can not say that it is the best choice we have in the market.

"The best free substitute for Photoshop"

What do you like best?

GIMP is essentially a Photoshop of the free open-source software world. Again, it is free, that is the main benefit. It has basic tools for photo editing - curves, layers, filters, etc, so it is entirely possible to substitute Photoshop for basic editing. GIMP made a lot of progress recently and now looks much better than before. Especially I'd like to point out that it now occupies only one window, not multiple ones like few years ago - that is a huge improvement.

What do you dislike?

It took GIMP a lot of time to catch Photoshop like it is used to be 10 years ago. Unfortunately, a lot changed in these years, so GIMP is again trying to catch up. It still looks not very polished, and does not have as many features as Photoshop. Of course, there is no cloud behind it (like Adobe cloud), so there is no synchronization or other cloud-based features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want Photoshop but can't afford it - use GIMP and look no further.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Raster graphics (photo and scientific visualization) editing. GIMP is free, that is the only benefit of it.

"GIMP: The Ultimate GNU Image Editor!"

What do you like best?

GIMP is a wonderful GNU Image Editor. It is open-source, and we really enjoy how it can run by itself without X11. We use GIMP to enhance image clarity, so that we don't have to pay for licenses, because GIMP is free and free to use. We love how GIMP lets us save files as GIMP files, and also as image files, without waiting too long for our computer softwares. GIMP is extremely fast, and we are grateful for it.

What do you dislike?

GIMP sometimes crashes if it's outdated; so we always make sure to update GIMP. We also don't like how GIMP is a standalone application; we believe that it should have its own installer. Also, we would like to be able to donate to GIMP; we feel that GIMP deserves much more respect than its commercial competitors. We dislike how GIMP does not boast; it should boast more about its terminal capabilities too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When using GIMP, make sure to update to the latest version, in order to avoid crashes and malfunctions of the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GIMP helps us manipulate images in such a way that enhance their viewing online, using universal color shades to help best display them across different devices. We are also realizing the benefit of having different shades for different devices, and how GIMP's easy terminal features can let us test such conditions as if we were actually viewing the image across multiple device screens.

"Phenomenal for quick editions"

What do you like best?

GIMP software has an interface to anyone's reach, it is very similar to Adobe Photoshop and has many tools in common but without cost, which is very important in certain companies. It is also very easy to customize the layout of the buttons of each tool and allows to open files previously created and saved in Adobe.

What do you dislike?

What I like the least is that it is a basic program: it offers very few tools, compared to other similar programs, such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator; However, this aspect is positive for those people who are still learning in the field of graphic design because it is a fairly easy to use program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look for recordings on the best way to utilize the program and check with GMP people group individuals who have addressed inquiries you may have. Make sure to do refreshes in the event that it has been a while since you have downloaded the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Beyond question, the likelihood of sparing assets by having a program for which we didn't need to pay anything is an extraordinary favorable position. Similarly, being an exceptionally basic administration program, Promoting workers rapidly get comfortable with GIMP. We don't need to send basic employments all things considered. We outline them ourselves to demonstrate our work through interpersonal organizations and some site pages.

"Gimp is an awesome choice to expound basic outlines"

What do you like best?

Adobe Photoshop is an awesome instrument for designs altering yet unfortunately it isn't accessible on Linux Operating System. Fortunately GIMP acts the hero. It is Free Open Source programming pressed with highlights.

It open any record identified with designs.

Its highlights are very much created from adjusting pictures to making work of art without any preparation.

Layering engineering is anything but difficult to move around with. Network is dynamic so any sort of questions get cleared rapidly.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have a better palette of fonts, because it has a very rigid model for printing text, it would also be very useful a wider range of plugins that can give me other results with editing capacity. In comparison with other publishers, GIMP is a good option, but we cannot say that it is the best option we have in the market

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have used GIMP to produce all kinds of marketing materials such as flyers, print ads, web ads, social media publications, business cards and much more. And, of course, it's perfect for editing pictures for the web and for printing. With GIMP, I can quickly perfect a photo to use in our newsletter or brochures.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At the beginning when the company did not have enough capital for the acquisition of all the necessary programs, we looked for alternatives and found in GIMP the perfect alternative and not having to pay anything has been a great advantage. We can make designs from our company and send to customers in a precise way

"Gimp un duro competidor para Photoshop"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor es que es gratuita, y tiene unos resultados más que satisfactorios en las funcionalidades que ofrece. No es tan completo como Photoshop pero lo suficiente como para no echar de menos ninguna herramienta. Es una aplicación muy ligera y con un rendimiento muy bueno a la hora de mover y tratar imágenes. No consume tantos recursos como el Photoshop

What do you dislike?

La interfaz es el único pero que le pongo. Me sigue gustando más el entorno de Photoshop igual porque estoy más familiarizado con él, pero a la hora de trabajar lo veo más sencillo, intuitivo y cómodo ya que puedes configurar a tu gusto el entorno de trabajo. También hay que reconocer que aunque GIMP es una buena aplicación para el retoque fotográfico, Photoshop aún sigue siendo más completo (también es una aplicación comercial)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Por supuesto que recomendaría GIMP con toda tranquilidad. Primero porque es totalmente gratuito (razón muy a tener en cuenta). Segundo porque es una aplicación que tiene un rendimiento muy bueno, con la mayoría de opciones necesarias (sino todas) para el tratamiento de imágenes. Por último es una aplicación ligera y que no consume tantos recursos como otras de pago. También tiene mucho material de apoyo y ayuda ya que tiene una comunidad bastante grande de usuarios

More powerful than most commercial photo editors on market, in 2.10.6 version Gimp deliver outstanding power, usabilities and working comfort for image manipulation in RGB mode. With additional free programs (Darktable is one of options) Gimp is ideal photographer companion. Designers can use it for extraordinary photo effects and adjustment of image parameters.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, GIMP has no full support for nondestructive effects on images. And, second disadvantage, GIMP do not work with CMYK image, there are only export to CMYK Tiff ... And product support is based on great number of users and free forums. GIMP is free program and there are no budget for additional customer support, because all money goes to development.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GIMP is more and more powerfull, and in last 2 year GIMP make switch to GEGL engine for effects and image manipulation, so it is wise to use it as much as you can in work or hobby.

"The best interface for editing"

What do you like best?

It is Open Source and multi-platform, making complete image editing programs more affordable on the market, they are very comprehensive and include advanced editing features such as layers, adjustment layers, vector selection and much more... GIMP covers image-editing needs for 90% users of more expensive and commercial programs like Photoshop

What do you dislike?

I would like to have a better palette of fonts, because it has a very rigid model for printing text, it would also be very useful a wider range of plugins that can give me other results with editing capacity. In comparison with other publishers, GIMP is a good option, but we cannot say that it is the best option we have in the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Even if you're not thinking about changing your editor, try it, it's free and amazing!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly fast editing jobs, Gimp can easily get you out of some problems when you're not on a licensed computer for the most serious editing tools like Photoshop.

"The best opensource image editor"

What do you like best?

GIMP it's a simple but powerful application for edit image and for the creation of new images. It's integrated in Ubuntu and in other operative systems.

The best of GIMP is the possibilities of do things without much knowledge. You start opening a new toolbox, that is a floating windows with all the tools that you will need, and you can start drawing or editing an images. Another positive thing, is that there are much keyboard shortcuts in order to do some tasks, and this for Linux users, it's really nice.

What do you dislike?

It's very powerful but there are functions that has programs like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator that aren't available in GIMP

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's the best opensource editor, it's free and powerful. Can edit PDFs, in fact is the only option to modify a PDF in Linux

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically we use to small tasks in our daily, like resize and image, modify a PDF or draw a simple figure.

"Good option if you are looking for something free"

What do you like best?

One of the best things about Gimp is that it is free and easy to try. The toolbox is simple and simple for a beginner to learn how to use it. The filters that come with Gimp also look very professional and compared to many high-priced graphic design programs. It seems that the software is updated regularly to try to correct errors and other problems. There are also many different plugins and scripts that you can add for additional features and tools. In general, personalization is what makes Gimp a great software.

What do you dislike?

It lacks some features but can be understandable as it is a free program. Another point that I do not like is that the filters are applied directly and can not be applied as another layer

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend trying it if you have experience or not in graphic design and, in turn, find tutorials to learn how to use their functions. It's also a good idea to register on your community forums to get more help.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a graphic design company but we also have some programers who do not have training in this field so they use it to make simple graphics that are necessary for the projects in which we work

"Essential software to web designer"

What do you like best?

GIMP it's a very powerful image editor for Linux environments, where it's normally installed by default. With GIMP you can edit and image with the typical options, cut and paste parts, resize and move, etc, but also you can draw like a image creation program.

It has the option to work with layers, that are very useful when you have much different images to work.

What do you dislike?

It's difficult to understand how it works when you start using GIMP, because some functions are hidden and you need to click with the right button to open a new toolbox and find it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GIMP it's a program that always it's installed and can be used for different tasks, not just for image modifications, you can use for modify a closed pdf or to save an screen shot of something that you are using.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically I edit the contents that I will use in our websites. Sometimes I edit a template, or sometimes a bar, or the logo of the company. Also I use GIMP a lot to rescale images, because it do very fast and easy, without quality loss.

"Great for the basics"

What do you like best?

Gimp is a free platform and is perfect for beginners. It is easy to use and get comfortable with. You have your standard crop, draw, retouch, freeform, and font options as well as some slightly more advanced ones. There is a help toolbar that will guide you in the direction of the tool you are looking for. The interface is user-friendly and easy to navigate.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the limited range of tools that Gimp has. They do have the basics but don’t have as wide of a range as other tools like Photoshop. For example, Gimp does not have the CMYK feature that Photoshop offers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend Gimp for basic beginner users. It's free, so it's worth a download at the very least. There are free online tutorials you can use to guide you when you start out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A free, easy solution to create basic designs without having to invest a lot of money in a product like Adobe Photoshop.

"Gimp le dio virus a mi computadora portátil"

What do you like best?

Me encanta el suministro abierto y lo agradable de la herramienta que puede ser un poderoso competidor de Photoshop sin costo alguno. Es bueno para los estudiantes jóvenes y excesivos de la facultad que no pueden tener suficiente dinero Photoshop para obtener su pies húmedos con retratos y retoques virtuales.

What do you dislike?

El diseño de código abierto crea una puerta trasera para virus y troyanos. Después de un año y medio del uso de gimp, mi PC se ralentizó tanto que no pude encenderlo. Varios cientos de dólares y un GIMP desinstalado más tarde, me cambié a Photoshop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Software gratuito y hace las mismas funciones que adobe photoshop, que quieres que te diga mas

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahora no resuelve los problemas para las empresas, ya que es una aplicación gratuita a millas y ninguna empresa comercial debería usarla. Es exacto para un dispositivo de estudio si no puede tener los fondos para Photoshop

"Free image editor that you can rely on"

What do you like best?

I was first introduced to Gimp as a Linux user looking for an open source alternative to Photoshop. In digital marketing you frequently need something to tweak images be it ads, profile images, team pics, etc. Gimp certainly is capable of providing the same experience to a pro Photoshop user. But when you are using a tool for years on end even small differences bug you. Hence, if you are not a pro Photoshop user looking for a free high quality image editing solution – try Gimp. It is available on Mac, Linux and Windows.

PS: Was looking for ways to share Gimp with more people for years, so thank you G2Crowd.

What do you dislike?

Always find myself looking for the tools panel. Sometimes you need to manually switch it on and one may forget how. :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can simply suggest you give it a try. It is intuitive for the most part.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gimp is a high class image editor that is also free. I am grateful for a solution like it. Great choice for startup people like myself.

"Gimp es una fantástica aplicación para el retoque fotográfico"

What do you like best?

De Gimp destacaría que es un software gratuito. Partiendo de esa importante razón, considero que GIMP es una aplicación muy potente para la edición de imágenes. Se pueden realizar la mayoría de acciones que permiten los programas de pago para la edición de imágenes. También es de resaltar que es una aplicación mucho más ligera que otras de similares características como el Photoshop por poner un ejemplo.

What do you dislike?

La interfaz es un poco más compleja que la de Photoshop. También siguiendo con la comparación con Photoshop (que es su mayor competidor) GIMP tiene menos funciones y Photoshop está más extendido con lo que tiene más documentación detrás ya sea en internet o en librerías en forma de guías o tutoriales

Recommendations to others considering the product

Por supuesto que lo recomendaría, es una aplicación que está bajo una licencia GNU con lo que es totalmente gratuito y tiene la mayoría de funcionalidades que cualquier aplicación de edición de imágenes. También es una aplicación que no consume tantos recursos como otras

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con Gimp realizo todo tipo de retoques fotográficos y lo tengo instalado en varios equipos ya que está disponible bajo una licencia GNU con lo que es libre y gratuito. Al ser más ligero que el Photoshop lo tengo instalado en un portátil y me permite retocar imágenes en el mismo establecimiento al cual le llevo el mantenimiento de la página Web. para trabajos más profesionales y más específicos suelo usar el Photoshop que lo tengo instalado en un único ordenador

"La mayoría de características de Photoshop, gratis"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de GIMP es que, es gratis y comparte muchas características con Adobe Photoshop. Este programa es open source, esto quiere decir que su código es libre para modificar. GIMP, como Photoshop, tiene una gran selección de plugins para usar, y también se pueden instalar plugins de Photoshop en él. Otras cosas de GIMP que me gustan, por ejemplo, son los requisitos de GIMP. Este es más ligero y funciona en PCs en los que Photoshop podría no funcionar. También, GIMP se puede usar en Linux, al contrario de Photoshop, solo disponible para Win y Mac. En general, un muy buen programa para empezar con el tema de diseño gráfico sin tener que comprar licencias para programas de pago.

Para personas que ya usaron Photoshop, o les gusta mas su interfaz, existe una capa de personalización para que GIMP se parezca a Photoshop, pero solo está disponible para Windows y Mac. No para linux.

What do you dislike?

No tiene tantas funciones como Photoshop, para algunas personas puede ser negativo pero viene bien para los que empiezan con desarrollo gráfico ya que no tienen que comprar ninguna licencia de pago.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Está muy bien para empezar con la edición de imágenes para personas que no quieran gastarse dinero en Photoshop y para los que empiecen en diseño gráfico o edición de imágenes, ya que es más básico que photoshop, y más facil de usar para principiantes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lo uso para edición de imagen profesional como sustituto de Photoshop.

"Gimp Is Great"

What do you like best?

Gimp is open source. No upfront costs to get in the way of creativity. With such a large community of contributors, there are tutorials and help in abundance. Quick to install and fast to get started.

What do you dislike?

Dated UI design makes it hard for new users.New users compare to the modern design of Photoshop and automatically think GIMP is inferior but is actually better because it runs faster without excess design elements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's really great to free yourself from a burdening monthly payment. Take the time and follow some tutorials and get a feel for the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photo editing is simple. Brightening images is easy. Resizing images is painless with gimp. GIMP like Photoshop uses layers. Gimp also makes it easy to remove the backgrounds of png formatted images. That is great for logos and webpage images.

"GIMP review"

What do you like best?

In my opinion, the best thing that this software has is the facility to edit images and the huge quantity of tools that it has. Another thing that I like is that GIMP is multiplatform, so you can use it on Windows or, like my case, on Linux, and this is something that I want to highlight because is important to all users. Other important thing that I like is all the plugins and extensions the it has, because they could improve your abilities abour editing images without trying a lot of options

What do you dislike?

If I had to say something bad about GIMP I thnik it could be that is less powerful than other softwares (like Adobe Photoshop). But compare this two softwares is not fair, because the difference betwen budgets is very huge, and this determinate the quality and the posiblities that the software could have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend use GIMP if you want retouch some images to publish them on social networks, webpages or things like that, but if you are looking for a more professional software, I think that you have more options on the market. I t could be more expensive, yes, but at the end if you are working with the software all the days, the price is irrelevant

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my case, with GIMP I colud solve some easy problems like edit images for webpages or create collages to sponsor a trademark.

"Buen programa para la edición y creación de imágenes"

What do you like best?

GIMP es un buen programa para crear logotipos, gráficos simples o editar imágenes. Tiene muchas funciones y es multiplataforma. A la sombra de Photoshop es una gran programa para cosas quizá con menos volumen de dificultad, teniendo en cuenta que es gratuito. Pero tiene un plugin y una cantidad de efectos que hacen de Gimp una potencia en el sector del diseño gráfico.

What do you dislike?

A veces tarda demasiado en cargar. Puede ser un poco complicado el uso si no estas familiarizado con el programa ya que tiene bastantes opciones, así que a menudo hay que buscar los pasos para hacer algo en línea o en un tutorial porque puede estar bastante oculto.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomendable para la edición y creación de pequeños logos, descargando un programa gratuito y fácil de manejar.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fácil de crear efectos de capa para el diseñador gráfico principiante sin pagar una fortuna por otro software mas avanzado. He podido realizar pequeñas animaciones, así como editar fotografías a nivel principiante.

"Gimp! Un buen editor de imágenes"

What do you like best?

GIMP es un software de diseño gráfico genial, porque te permite manipular las imágenes usando muchas de las mismas funciones que podemos encontrar en Photoshop, en mi caso estoy más acostumbrada a editar las imágenes con este último programa puesto que es anterior a Gimp y mucho más conocido.

Con Gimp puedes crear capas y editar formas e imágenes de forma inteligente para después superponer sobre otras capas y cambiar las perspectivas de las imágenes. Puedes usar además innumerables pinceles y formas, dibujar con colores exactos y mucho más...

Además para todas aquellas personas que no conozcan el programa existen numerosos tutoriales para enseñar cómo usar de forma correcta el software, lo que es de gran utilidad.

Tanto el software como los tutoriales que te enseñan a manejarlo son gratuitos, algo que se agradece.

What do you dislike?

A pesar de lo comentado anteriormente he de decir que a primera vista cuesta imaginar cómo funciona el programa, es decir, es poco intuitivo, al menos para personas que no están acostumbradas a utilizar este tipo de herramientas.

Por otro lado, una de las cosas que no me gustan sobre Gimp es la opción de editar texto, ya que una vez que has añadido una imagen, se hace muy complicado editar el texto. Otra desventaja a mi parecer son las opciones de vectores, es muy difícil importar un vector desde un recurso externo y luego ser capaz de editarlo con Gimp, por tanto se hace difícil crear vectores en Gimp

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es gratuito así que no pierdes nada por probarlo

"Mi experiencia con GIMP ha sido genial con trabajos y ediciones impecables."

What do you like best?

GIMP me ha traído muchos beneficios en los últimos años, he editado en tiempo record imágenes para los sitios web que he diseñado, he hecho tarjetas de visita para profesionales, siendo un programador web sabiendo que GIMP me ha complementado me permite ofrecer páginas web sin tener que recurrir siempre a un diseñador profesional lo cual facilita el trabajo desde cualquier parte.

What do you dislike?

Es difícil encontrar a alguien que realmente te ayude si tienes un problema o no sabes cómo hacer una tarea en particular. Los componentes adicionales que se pueden descargar de Internet son gratuitos, pero no muchos. Es necesario realizar un trabajo manual en otras aplicaciones que se realizan automáticamente. Tiene funciones que son muy avanzadas y no muy intuitivas, me ha costado descubrir algunas funciones por mi cuenta.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Intuitiva, económica y efectiva gimp es una solución de diseño gráfico indispensable para tener en tus herramientas, Es importante que haya una buena cantidad de extras, como filtros y pinceles, que se pueden descargar de Internet completamente gratis y eso me gusta mucho ya que facilita el trabajo y a un precio inigualable..

Seguramente seguiré usando GIMP durante muchos años.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

en mi trabajo en la empresa me ha servido para realizar tareas específicas a la hora de trabajar con páginas web. Estoy muy contento con este software que ha sido muy útil durante años y me ha sacado de problemas. Mis jefes y clientes están contentos con mi trabajo.

"Edición gratuita y útil."

What do you like best?

Gimp es un software de edición de imágenes realmente bueno.

Lo uso principalmente para editar fotos y hace el trabajo maravillosamente.

Me gusta especialmente la capacidad de expansión mediante el uso de complementos, que son todos gratuitos y creados por la comunidad de código abierto.

La mejor parte es que es de uso gratuito. Realmente no puedes hacer nada mejor que gratis. El hecho de que sea funcional para todos los usos para los que lo necesito también es bueno.

What do you dislike?

Por el momento, la característica más molesta es la ventana flotante. Cuando se trabaja en pantalla completa, las barras de herramientas siempre están en la parte superior de la imagen que está editando.

Nno es tan fácil de usar como otros programas gratuitos, pero solo porque hay tantas opciones especializadas en lugar de algunas funciones automáticas para una edición rápida. Esto no es un problema para mí, porque prefiero tener más control sobre los detalles de mi edición y diseño.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si no puede pagar Photoshop o simplemente desea que un programa realice una edición de fotos (es decir, recorte, balance de color, saturación y otros ajustes), este es el programa que necesitas.

Además, hay tutoriales disponibles en línea de forma gratuita.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GIMP permite a mi empresa crear contenido de imagen para redes sociales y crear fácilmente diagramas, infografías de manera totalmente gratuita y eso ahorra un coste adicional en programas de pago, gracias a GIMP no tenemos que gastar tanto dinero en ello.
