Why GIMP gets all that hate? It's a perfectly fine tool for image editing, photo correction, etc.

The absolutely best thing you can get for free.

Blender is actually industry competitive once you learn the unique interface (not even an issue with 2.8 really).

GIMP on the other hand could never survive as paid software. The fact that it's free is all it has going for it. Even basic tasks like rescaling layers suck ass compared to Photoshop.

Krita ia for drawing AND image editing.
It has most of the powerful features PS has.
It has blending options like photoshop does.
It has liquify and all sorts of editing.
It's transform too is actually good.
And it loads faster than gimp.

Krita is better than GIMP at everything.

>> No.71329081

Krita is great, mostly for all the brush presets, but I don't use it much because I don't have much digital painting talent.
You can improve gimp's painting capability a bit by adding the brush presets available in windows>dockable dialogs>tool presets. You will also find mypaint brushes there, if available, as well.
Still won't be as good for painting as krita, tho. But if you think krita is a better option than gimp for editing photos, you obviously don't know much about either program.

Ofc these are my own experiences, but as someone who has been using GIMP for about 4 years and recently made the switch I’ve found Photoshop does all my needs much better and produces much cleaner and professional edits. I especially love the layer styles and easier color to alpha. Plus I can actually do pixel art if I so pleased.
