For some reason or the other, people always seem to be complaining about the GIMP. For some its the ‘absurd’ name, for others, it’ll never reach Photoshop’s levels. I for one think the acronym for the GNU Image Manipulation Program is a perfectly sensible name. And since I’m not a professional artist or something, the (possibly) legitimate drawbacks it has doesn’t affect me the least bit, the few times I happen to use it.
I personally think its a fantastic tool, and I’ve had no problems whatever in getting acquainted with it. Alright, there’s always going to be criticism for any project I guess, as long as its constuctive its fine. Anyways here’s a picture I made today using only the GIMP. Its hopelessly bad but it was fun doing it 🙂
