"Fascinating!"
What do you like best about GIMP?
I love that GIMP offers a wide variety of tools and features that make the software very complete and effective, it is very useful for Digital Art, It's funcionalty exceeded my expectations. The software is easy to install, friendly to use, and offers tutorials as well. I use it almost every day for my 2D abstract works of art, and I am fascinated by it's features. The software can open files from other photo editing software, and that is very useful. And besides all of this goodies, the software is a free an open source product, so it is great for teaching art.
What do you dislike about GIMP?
I dont have any bad feedback about this software, if I were to say something negative, it would be that you can not select many layers at once, but there are other creative strategies that can be used that work great too.
What problems is GIMP solving and how is that benefiting you?
Gimp is solving the issue that artists that have to pay a lot of money for digital art softwares, and the other ones that are free or less expensive are not as good as the ones that are more pricy, but GIMP, is the BEST free and open source software, that serves as substitute to the expenisve digital art software. Besides that, I use GIMP to teach digital art, because it is great for teaching due to its many features and because it is free and open source, and most students can not afford to purchase pricy digital art software. I LOVE GIMP :)

"Best free substitute for Photoshop!"
What do you like best about GIMP?
GIMP is a free and open-source image editing software available for any OS. It's the best free substitute for

Adobe Photoshop
as it's free and contains advanced image-editing features unavailable in Paint. You can add and work with multiple layers for an image, making editing and adding new content easier. GIMP has easy tools to resize images without losing much quality and scale images up or down. GIMP allows you to rotate pictures or layers with ease. The best part of GIMP is the transparency layer, where you can draw anything with an alpha background. You can remove borders from images and crop the image to the content efficiently. You can recolor any part or the entire image seamlessly through features such as recolor, highlights-shadows, hue-lightness-saturation, etc. GIMP is a universal image editor that supports any format. You can save the images you work on as PNG, JPG, TIFF, GIF, etc. GIMP can also be used to open WebP images in the editor. Compared to Photoshop, which now requires a $20 subscription every month, GIMP is the next best solution for any new or novice designer looking for the best alternative.
What do you dislike about GIMP?
GIMP's boot time is slow. It takes a few seconds after you right-click on an image file and select Open with GIMP for it to open the editor finally. The only downside to GIMP is that you cannot build a career with it. The design industry heavily prefers Photoshop and those well-experienced in it as it's the standard. While GIMP is excellent for beginners, it has no scope outside personal use.
What problems is GIMP solving and how is that benefiting you?
GIMP has been my go-to image editing solution for well over a decade. Converting from PNG to JPG or other file formats has been relatively easy, thanks to GIMP. When I save images from Chrome, they're always saved under the WebP format, which the default image viewer or Paint on Windows cannot open. Using GIMP, I can conveniently open the images to edit or save them as JPG or PNG for less hassle. GIMP is very handy for web designing projects where we use the image editor to make layouts and banners we embed on the website using CSS. I also use GIMP to help create slides for presentations wherever an image or a banner is required to make the presentation more visually appealing. As someone who previously used Photoshop and switched to GIMP since it was free, there's not a single feature I miss in Photoshop, as GIMP covers everything.

"Great photo editor"
What do you like best about GIMP?
It has a lot of features, enough from amateurs up to pro photographers and illustrators.
What do you dislike about GIMP?
Sometimes, when you need a quick edition on a photo, its amount of options is overwhelming.
What problems is GIMP solving and how is that benefiting you?
Having full-featured photo editing software at zero cost. Another: being a Linux user, the paid competitor (Photoshop) is not available.

"Powerful free and open source editing software"
What do you like best about GIMP?
GIMP gives us lots of tools to express our creativity in the editing field. It is a free, open-source tool with enough features to manipulate any image. It is small in size and easy to install. It has a customizable interface. It allows retouching the photo and making a new photo with professional results.
What do you dislike about GIMP?
I feel some lag issue on editing large size 4k photos. I feel it for a few seconds in starting, but it works perfectly after a few seconds. There is no issue in GIMP I have found.
What problems is GIMP solving and how is that benefiting you?
I use GIMP for making logos and editing photos. The layering feature helps in editing more productively and professionally. It is a free tool and the best alternative of Photoshop, and we do not need to buy any costly software for graphics and editing content.

Reducing the cost of licences without losing options.

"My Experience With Awesome Image Editor: GIMP"
What do you like best about GIMP?
I have been using GIMP for years and did almost all types of image editing work smoothly. I often use it for creating Blog Post Images, Image Retouching, and Changing Sizes and Resolutions. It's a free and open-source powerful tool. That saves the cost of the Software license. I have installed GIMP on all my devices, Linux, Windows and Mac. Easy to work on image layers. I used it to create images, icons, vector images for websites, and different-sized images for different social media posts. Easy to remove and change image background. That's a free, powerful, and feature-rich tool.
What do you dislike about GIMP?
I have never felt like it is lacking somewhere. It perfectly did all my jobs. Its UI is outdated, but most free and open-source tools look the same, so it's OK for me. I am used to it.
What problems is GIMP solving and how is that benefiting you?
I am using GIMP to complete my day-to-day micro jobs, which helps me achieve them perfectly, like image retouching, cropping, resizing, and background removal. The most significant benefit of GIMP is it is free and the best alternative to Photoshop.

"I'm a huge fan of Adobe, but this took the crown."
What do you like best about GIMP?
The best part about gimp is it's always allowed it's user to make custom brushes, custom patterns and do be honest that's the words that's important. They allow for you to to customize nearly every single feature there is or upload something that another user has created. It's give me the ability to be more artistically creative.
What do you dislike about GIMP?
Oh the learning curve after updates. Awful, just awful. No in software tutorial to assist. It's another go online to their website and read, watch videos and figure it all out all over again. Drives me crazy.
What problems is GIMP solving and how is that benefiting you?
It's solving the gap that adobe left. That artist to developer conversation that adobe I feel doesn't do, gimp does. They listen, they give free creativity and not only that a free software. It benefits my artistic abilities and my pocketbook.
