sheer inertia at this point since I already know how to use GIMP even though it sucks
loads of shit that's blatantly unintuitive, I already know the key shortcuts and commands and whatever to do them in less than a second, so loads of dumb UI things don't trip me up anymore

but, I still want my fucking adjustment layers (so I can change my mind about what adjustments I do later on after I've started really editing pixel data), god I miss that shit from PS
or a shape tool system (shit, a convenient set of pre-defined paths with common shapes would be amazing, you just drag over the area on the screen and your given path (containing maybe, a circle or something? I dunno, I can circle select->path on my own, but what about other common shapes?) appears, and you can stroke and fill it easily in one step) -- brushes work for filled shapes, but that's it
being able to select multiple layers at once and drag them around would be a real boon
and like everything about the text tool blows chunks
everything about layer groups sucks and if your GIMP project is large enough to need layer groups, it's genuinely too big for GIMP and I might as well use something, anything else
and I'm increasingly convinced that the people who wrote GIMP haven't ever needed to do any image editing in their lives to be honest, because a lot of these are just things you'd start working on just to make your own life easier

multi-page PDF export would be really nice too, but that's a bit out of scope (still, PDF import let me bring in the document as a stack of layers, why the shit can't I get it out like that)
or even export to layers so I could tell other utilities to do that (this one's a bit dumb -- the easiest way currently is to export to .ora and then extract it as a zip; the underlying code to export as a series of PNGs is there, but it's buried in other code to service the .ora format)

this shit fucking blows but I still use it every day
