This program is utter shite. Nothing is where you would expect it to be, and is unintuitive as fuck. How has this program been around so long yet still so crappy?

Your problem is that you want an exact clone of Photoshop, which GIMP is not. If you come to it with a more open mind you will be pleasantly surprised.

I honestly have less problems working with GIMP than with Photoshop, and I think it's partially because of pic related.

The thing is, because the layout has been the same for almost a decade you don't even need to think of what the icon is or look at it. There's also a huge number of familiar keyboard shortcuts to speed shit up. If you're used to something it takes forever to adjust.

Either way though, I'm glad it exists as an alternative. Fuck Adobe.

>> No.64912123

I been been using it for over a decade with no complaints. I tried PhotoShop out once. Found it to be an utter pile of shit with no flow. Uninstalled it and never looked back.

What the fuck is your problem anyway OP? You make this thread a few times a day. If you don't like gimp, fuck it. Use whatever you want. What is the point of crying about a software you don't use?

I think it's pretty obvious. OP is a poorfag who is used to Photoshop but cannot afford it. GIMP wasn't an exact copy of Photoshop, so it triggered his autistic rage. Making meme pictures for Reddit takes so much longer now.

krita is free, and it doesn't suck

but the devs want to keep it as a painting program and refuses to add any image processing functions to make it like photoshop, when it's capable of doing 70% of photoshop stuff

Why do people still talk about gimp now that Rita exists? If you like gimp you need to seriously reevaluate your life

I personally switched over to Krita recently. Never found Gimp to be unintuitive but that might be because I never really got used to Photoshop.

Not op but nigger i didnt use any photo edit besides paint before gimp and even then it was like the most retarded shit someone could make
Its real nothing is there where u would expect it and tools that belong together are separeted in totally different categorys. Fuck you gimp shill

>> No.64917028

Speaking as a UX designer, the grouping and categories in PS and in GIMP are largely arbitrary and are mostly there for historical reasons. Any program that large has a problem of where to put stuff. This isn't fixable with a simple UI redesign, you just need to suck it up and deal with the fact that more power requires more cognitive load.

>> No.64917032

Same applies to some option in PS, btw. The BlenderFaggot made some interesting notes on it in his Blender UI improvement series.

Gimps problem is more its slow development due to being written in C.

GIMP: Ugly, non-standard icons (why the fuck is the crop icon a scalpel instead of the same icon every other image editor uses) in a big, ordered pile. Colours make icons harder to parse at a glance.

Photoshop: Icons are always in the same place, are drawn logically on a segmented tool bar.

And still not even close to the clusterfuck that is photoshop.
Gimp is horrible at so many things (smart objects, "drawing circles", snapping, resizing), but it at least stays consistent.
Every tool works exactly how it was introduced.

Take a look at the free-transform in Photoshop to see how not to do it.
One of the most important features, tucked away in a menu. Only available to you when certain conditions (area selected) are met.
Awful to learn for a beginner.

GIMP is just objectively bad, even photoshop 7 is still better than it. The point is moot at this point because krita exist and gimp should be forever forgotten

I can objectively say, GIMP does not suck
But more importantly, GIMP is not photoshop, it's not easy to transition from one to another. They both have their own ways of getting things done
I've used GIMP for 8 years now, and I could never dream of switching to photoshop

Point is:

Get paint.net/PDN, it's the best one you can get for free IMO. There's also Pinta but you don't have nearly the same number of extensions available plus Pinta is a buggy POS similar to gimp (both of which are meant for linux; really gets the noggin joggin)
