What do you like best?

GIMP is not a professional's tool but it works great for the common user. I dare say you can get the job done with it even if you are a professional photographer. There are many plugins that work with it, it can handle a bunch of file types and - best of all - it's open-source. You can run it in Linux. I like it because It's easy to use (for me at least). I do all of my graphics editing in GIMP and i havn't yet found something it can't yet do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The last version changed a few thing around and the things I got used to became something else. Also - not all PSD files open up correctly in it. When editing text you have to select the text you want to edit in the editing box whereas previosuly you could just select the editing box and apply filters to the text inside without selecting it.

I edit all my photos with it. I did webdesign using it exclusively and my clients were always satisfied. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Gimp is one of the few programs that i have found that maintain any level of competitiveness with the big dogs in the graphic arts industry. The array of tools, customizations, and flexibility make it a great system for everyone from the beginner to the industry captain. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If I were to say gimp as one failing it would be the very steep learning curve. I've used gimp to do everything from create logos to coloring coloring book pages, and while the community for gimp is out there, the difficulty is sorting through the appropriate levels of different versions tools login configurations and finding the information you need to do the fancy effect you desire.

Take the courses available where ever you can, this will help you perform some of the more advanced techniques. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While using gimp I've used it to entertain myself and create logos for companies. I realize that while I may not be charged for this program I am able to do the same skills and designs that I would with some of the larger more expensive programs. While this benefit is definitely a great thing. Compared to some of the other companies this one program being as inexpensive is it is being free, sets it above and beyond, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

GIMP (the GNU Image Manipulation Program) includes nearly all the features that popular image editing programs have and in addition, it is free. It consists of features like layers, customizable brushes, filters, and automatic image-enhancement tools. The developer community is always active, so there are constant improvements and bug fixes. Although it may lack the depth of the commercial photo editing programs, it provides all the essential editing features and tools that might be needed by an average user. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The interface is really complex and can be diffcult to navigate for someone who is not so familiar with picture editing softwares. The tool shortcuts get changed constantly for no reason. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Would recommend checking out the tutorials for the software since it has a complex interface. Nevertheless, it is your best choice if you have budget constraints and if you are using the Linux operating system on your comuters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Creation of designs for brochures, flyers, and name badges. We also create pictures to be used in social media posts and websites of our events. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

GIMP is feature-rich. It does everything I need for photo and image editing. Basic changes such as cropping and recolouring. And I love working with the layers when making collages. And amazingly, it is free! I've used it for a good ten years now and it gets more powerful each version. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The layout and interface can feel cluttered. For example, the icons in the tool tray are a little small and it is hard for me to find what I'm looking for. Likewise, the menu options are not always intuitively placed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Before making a decision about GIMP, I recommend testing it (it's free) and as part of your testing, to do some training videos to learn the basics (as it is not always intuitive) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used GIMP for all personal and professional image editing. This includes photos and graphics for websites. Creating artwork for personal use. Preparing logos of different sizes. Converting files to different types. It is brilliant! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that I am able to edit things out of images, resize images, crop, and make backgrounds on images transparent. I don't know how to do a lot on GIMP, but I know enough to get the job done and that's all that matters. I'm happy with GIMP and I love that it's free! I was using another program that had a monthly fee, but switched to GIMP because it can do the same thing as this other program, but for free! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I feel like the overall look of GIMP looks a bit outdated -- however, it's free, so I really cannot complain. It gets the job done. I do feel like it's a bit difficult to navigate, but once you get it figured out it's not too bad. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Watch some youtube videos to learn the basics on GIMP. That's what I did and I picked it up pretty quickly. It really is similar to other programs and can do just about everything other editing programs can. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to crop images, edit logos, make the background on logos transparent so that I can use them in marketing materials with a transparent background. I'm able to resize images to fit into my publications correctly. I often has businesses submit photos to me for my publications that are not at a high enough dpi, GIMP allows me to adjust the dpi up to 300 so that I'm able to use a clear image in my publications.

What do you like best?

1. Gimp is a totally free program under the GPL license of the GNU project, its programmers can tailor it to your needs.

2. Gimp and its Plugins can be obtained for Free.

3. It is available for multiple platforms and Operating Systems.

4. It has a very simple and intuitive interface.

5. It takes up very little space on our hard drive.

6. Being developed for so many platforms development is increased.

7. Endorsement of major motion picture productions has created worldwide interest in product growth and development. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- Doesn't work with vectorized images. That means that if you need to print hi quality images in bigger scales it wont work.

- If you are trying to do something complex - professional, is not recommended.

- It has an interface that could be improved a little more, it is a little poor in the use of the tools in question to other image editors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please note: it is free, affordable for absolutely any budget! Inspired by Adobe Photoshop, it is designed to look the most, with associated settings and features. There are also tutorials available for everyone.

This free software has gradually increased in success and continues to do so. Downloadable from any browser, you can cut your photos in a simple way and adjust the contrasts without difficulty.

With a Photoshop-inspired interface (since the basic goal was to win back all the platform users who couldn't afford the Photoshop version), GIMP is an intuitive and easy-to-use archetype of software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Cost (free), features (really comprehensive) and with a useful range of plugins available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The Save vs Export workflow. Save is for the internal GIMP format, and Export for all other file formats. Can't get this to stick in my head. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are lots of tutorials to get you started. It is worth going through all the panels to find those useful for your kind of work. There are lots of pre-loaded filters and plugins to explore, and lots more available online. For web image optimisation, there is a useful integration with RiOT, which is a image compression tool with a visual inspection of the compression effects. Without RiOT, you can compress the images using a numerical value, but without being able to see upfront what the effect is. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a free resource, GIMP is fantastic. It has a tremendous number of tools and capabilities which would cost you a pretty penny elsewhere, and the user interface is clean and well organized. It does require a bit of a learning curve, whether you're transitioning from a similar program elsewhere, or whether you're brand new to the concept and learning from scratch. However, the investment of time and effort on the front-end, familiarizing yourself with the program and getting comfortable with its abilities and options, will pay excellent dividends moving forward. Essentially you're trading that time and effort for the savings you get by not having to purchase a commercial program elsewhere, which, to be fair, you'd have to take time to learn a purchased program as well. The community support for GIMP help with this as well, as most answers are only a google search away, meaning you're not left fumbling on your own to figure things out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a few limitations to the program versus other similar programs which you would have to pay for. I occasionally have to pair GIMP with an additional editing program for a project which requires something I either can't do, or simply don't know how to do, through GIMP itself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GIMP provides me with a powerful suite of image editing and content creation tools. I've used it for touching up photos and creating both digital and print signage, both for personal and professional purposes. I cannot emphasize enough that the price point (meaning the lack thereof) is a major upside for GIMP, but make no mistake that it is indeed a powerhouse program for the purposes stated above, so don't be fooled into thinking you're just getting a semi-functional dollar-store knock-off of Photoshop. It has its limitations, but they are few and far between. Without it in my arsenal, my creation options would be greatly hindered, so whatever the small elements are that GIMP lacks, it's hard to get upset about them with all it brings to the table.

I like GIMP because it has been the easiest thing to use to access image and originality projects. It integrates with many operating systems without any problem. It is extraordinary and makes it easy to tackle new design pieces. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Very good is GIMP I have no problem with the program, it is intuitive and very effective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend the software to strengthen creativity at all times, it is very good and guarantees any kind of help when making a simple advertising with a noticeable impact. It is really very solid. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically the software has given incredible results to make many projects in social networks, we have planned many ideas that have been executed with the effectiveness that was expected. GIMP has adapted to our design and content program very nicely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Did I mention Free? And it works well? The interface is a bit dense and the terminology can be daunting. However, for most photo editing tasks GIMP will do the job quite well and simple Google searches walk you through the steps. The developers keep it up to date and it has a very good selection of tools and sub-attributes like fonts, brushes and export options among many others. I find that most tools are not intuitively easy to use but there is an abundance of youtube videos available that help with any project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The interface is crowded and if you do not know the terminology, it can be difficult to do simple tasks. It is not as easy for beginners as an application like Photoshop. The application's Help isn't easy for the novice user to read. I find I have to use Google to learn how to do new tasks. It is not intuitive and some tools are overly buried. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

GIMP is recommended where cost is an issue, particularly with keeping the application up to date. If you have moderate computing skills, GIMP will not pose a problem to learn. If you are a beginner an/or want something easier to learn, you will be better off with something like Adobe Photoshop where the tools are simpler to access and know what they are needed for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Creating custom images for marketing purposes, editing images for user guides and creating poster sized images. Also used to make GIF images for tutorials and virtual backgrounds for corporate purposes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

-Free

-Feature rich with many supported formats.

-Easy to use and works well for the non-artists.

-Updated often Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

-Some features are hard to find

-The UI is clunky and not very intuitive to newcomers.

-Seems very slow to load. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Stick with it. GIMP can be a bit hard to start with so watch some tutorials and you will get used to it's somewhat clunky UI - it is very powerful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a game developer with no artistic talent:

-Useful for non-artist to tweak the colors and brightness of textures.

-Used to convert images from one file format to another.

-Used to add or remove a transparency layer to images and icons.

-Great for making very basic placeholder art.

-Creating normal maps from textures. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

- It just works! It has plenty of tools to edit and improve the quality of your photos.

- Its architecture allows the creation and use of plug-ins to do interesting things (like filters, automatized work-flow operations, etc).

- It's free software, so you can download, install and use it with no worries about what the license allows and what doesn't.

- It's multi-platform, so you can install and use it on Windows, MacOS X, GNU/Linux up to Sun OpenSolaris and FreeBSD.

- It's lightweight and it's hardware requirements are not high. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- It could look hard to use for non expert users, but it is not different from other famous (and proprietary) software.

- Recent updates changed the way the software saves images. Now the "Save" command saves the file only in its own native .XCF format. If you want to save the file in one of the common image formats, such as .JPG or .PNG, you have to use the "export" command, while in the previous version the "save" command did the whole job. I liked the old behaviour... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Millions of people think that there is only "one" software to work on photos (so that its name is used as a sinonymus of "manipulated photo"). But not all of them pay the (big) price of the license to use it legally. So you should give GIMP a chance to show you that with a little training-time it is the software you need to do legally the same thing that you do (illegally) with the other one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everything related to image editing, from simple correction (like crop, rotation, perspective correction and light/color correction...) to advanced manipulation (like restoration of old photos from a scanner, photo-collages, addition of text, etc)

GIMP can manage all image formats, and can import files even in non-raster formats (suche as PDF pages, as an example). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's free! Adobe's Photoshop's kinda expensive, but GIMP offers all the features at no cost. As long a you understand the concepts of editing photos, you can figure out how to accomplish it with very little effort. Quite powerful enough when you need something more than MS Paint. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I work with Photoshop occasionally enough to be able to do basic operations, but when I started using GIMP, I feel like I had to relearn all the interface again. It sometimes feels like Photoshop from 10 years ago, but it's not that big of an issue once you start using it and get used to it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's not exactly the software to use if you've only used MS Paint or similar light photo editing software. The various options and tools can overwhelm, especially with it's less than intuitive interface. But feel free to play around with, since it's free. Youtube is a great place to figure out anything. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes you need a quick edits to a photo for social media or for internal use, that you can't wait for the agency or want to bother the agency to edit. GIMP allow for these quick edits without the overhead cost of having Adobe license. My needs are just light and quick photo edits, so it's hard to justify purchasing a professional software. And often enough, the free software that comes with Windows aren't robust enough to meet the need. GIMP fills the niche nicely where MS Paint isn't enough, but when you don't want to purchase Photoshop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Gimp has most of the features of Photoshop and its completely free. This can be a lifesaver when you're working on projects and when you need to quickly edit a photo. I personally find that for someone who just needs basic features it solves my needs. I also like that the program supports numerous file types and makes it easy for me to convert files to formats that I need. It's also great for compressing images or resizing them down which tends to be an issue whenever I want to send an email or post something on a website. The software is really stable too and doesn't use up too much RAM which is nice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For my needs Gimp actually is really effective so I don't really have any dislikes about it. One thing it probably cannot do as simple as Photoshop is open as many files with some CPU slowdown, I remember having tons of files open on Photoshop at a time and sometimes Gimp might slow down if there is too many files open so I had to shift to focusing on the tasks at hand instead. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would give it a try and see how the program makes you feel. If you have some basic experience with editors like Photoshop, it should be a breeze. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gimp helps me solve quick photo editing problems mainly for e-mail marketing and for social media purposes as well as blog posts and general photo editing needs. The many different tools available in the program saves me time from having to load multiple different programs or websites to edit files which I appreciate.

What do you like best?

I like that GIMP is a free version of Photoshop, and it's just as easy to use. Sure, it may not have all the bits and bobs that Photoshop does, but it does pretty much the same exact things. I enjoy using GIMP to make little promo teasers for my book, or cover photos for Facebook. Stuff like that. Being able to manipulate photos in GIMP is relatively easy, but it's not as extensive or as nifty as Photoshop. However, if you're looking for something basic and easy to use, then GIMP is definitely the way to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It isn't quite as fancy as Photoshop, and sometimes it's a little more difficult to find tutorials for doing things in GIMP, but those are just my fusses with the product. I don't really dislike anything, per se. I do wish it did a few more things that Photoshop does, but overall, it's not a bad program to use for graphic design. GIMP is a little difficult to get used to at first. If there were more tutorials on how to do certain things, like with Photoshop, it might be better. I know GIMP is nowhere near as extensive as Photoshop, but even being able to do simple blending without it looking bad would be nice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cheaper than Photoshop, and just as good. I can do almost the same exact things I need to do with GIMP that I can with Photoshop. I can make little teaser photos for books and stuff to share on my book blog. I can design a simple cover photo for Facebook if I want. It's definitely good for basic photo things, and it's less confusing than Photoshop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

GIMP is a great free tool for photo editing and artwork/digital painting. It provides all the basic editing tools such as layers, transparencies, effects, and brushes; as well as photo editing tools like brightness, saturation, exposure, curves etc. The open-source nature of the software is great for students, freelancers, and those who are new to digital editing.

I think that GIMP is most useful for the ability to quickly resize/crop images, convert between file types, and do minor photo retouching at no cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While most of the tools can be found in GIMP, it does not necessarily have the full capabilities of Photoshop, which is the current industry standard. Since GIMP is not as widely used, it can also be more difficult to find answers and tutorials/guides as you are learning the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great starter software for users who want to test out the world of digital editing and improve their skills without the high-cost barrier to entry. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With GIMP, I can work on personal projects and photos for free and without worrying about a subscription package. This program also seems to run very smoothly on my machine, as opposed to some of the more intensive software options which tend to crash. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

GIMP is a very popular tool for image editing because it is lightweight and completely free. It has very professional functions to highlight and add effects or elements to the images. The toolbar is friendly and has different filters to make photos more attractive. It runs on Windows, Linux and Max, which makes it very complete software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I enjoy using GIMP and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have the budget to invest in design software. It is a free program to edit photos or draw. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I have been using GIMP for years to retouch photos and add elements or effects to images on my company's social networks.

What do you like best?

It is a very simple program to use, very intuitive, light and totally free without limitations. It is not a program that requires many requirements, making it compatible with low-resource computers, which can be a very strong advantage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is very little documentation and what there is may be out of date. Even in user-made tutorials, you can't always find the information you are looking for about a tool. As it has in favor that it is not very demanding in terms of resources, this limitation is reflected in the capacity and scope of the tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Although it is very useful and practical software, keep in mind that it is not up to the PS. The same tasks can be performed on both, but the capabilities of the GIMP tools are more limited, making doing the same job a bit more time consuming. To its advantage, it can be used on a very wide range of computers. It is a very useful program if something much more advanced than Paint is required, but not as much as its commercial alternative. It depends on the work area, it is necessary to consider if a program such as PS is necessary, or with the same GIMP that, being totally free, is enough for the required tasks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Despite its simplicity, it is a very powerful tool. Whether it's for simple tasks like removing the background of an image or making a meme, to completing tasks for college and obtaining a professional result. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I can't do a project without the help of GIMP, it has many tools that I like and help me develop my experience every day making extremely creative designs.

I can use it without having to pay a high price for a program like Photoshop. As a student, it's been really helpful as I can't afford a monthly subscription or a high payment all at once. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
