Someone, please fork GIMP, give it a less stupid name and overhaul this piece of shit they call a "user interface". I'd even donate to support the development.

OK.
I'll make the logo.

GIMP is long dead
Try Krita

Krita = digital painting
GIMP = image manipulation

GNU image manipulation program
>>
>>52934534
It doesn't look and act exactly like the one program that graphics designers know how to use therefore they think its terrible.

Never mind the fact that if Gimp was simply an exact Photoshop clone it would open itself up to lawsuits from Adobe who have definite monopolist leanings. Same reason why Gimp has to avoid certain features to not infringe on software patents held by Adobe.

Paint.net is the answer. It's ui is closer to Photoshop and it's free as in beer and as in freedom.

Am I the only one who actually likes the loose windows UI that Gimp has?
>>
>>52935143
I like it. Then again, I use a proper window manager for my windows. The only people who don't like it don't use a proper one.
>>
>>52935056

I already fell for the paint.net meme.
>>
>>52934520
The guys who make gimp are going to port gimp to Gtk3 for the next or overnext release which means we can see the progress within the next decade.
>>
>>52935213
How is it a meme anon? It's got more features than $100 a month per pc per person per country per weekly infant sacrifice Photoshop and it's completely free. Albeit it's a little harder to use than Photoshop, it's still better than the mess that's gimp with everything having it's own window.

Is this the only complaint with GIMP? You can see in OP that it can be changed. OP's picture isn't separated in several windows.

What are some other complaints about GIMP, why is it generally disliked
>>
>>52934537

Krita's UI is even worse, like holy shit is it bad
>>
I'll just use my $10/mo photoshop I'm not a broke "i need free software" cuck

I like it too, but I think that's just because using it for several years led to me being accustomed to it.

I use Photoshp via Win in VirtualBox and it runs faster than what it did on a Windows drive, same pc.
All that untill I found out about Pixeluvo through a sale on steam and got it for 20euro. And since then I never used anything else. It is super simple, clean design, intuitive and awesome.
>>

Well I honestly didn't know about that, but I'm too used to paint.net to try gimp out again.

>Paying for programs
Kek, I bet you also bought an antivirus.
>>
>>52936913
Guess what, not only I payed for it on steam but my husband saw it and we decided to also buy it from their site to support them.
How does that make you feel?

It cannot be used professionally.

Pic related is what the professionals are used to.

I've literally only ever used GIMP, what is wrong with it's UI?

If you're not incompetent, you have some plug-ins which in fact only make it even better

gimp is awesome
so is photoshop
corel is pretty fucking good
krita is ok
paint.net is utter shit.

>>
>>52934520
The UI is only cramped if you use it on a fucking 800x600 resolution screen. If you have any monitor made in the past 15 years it's fine.

What's wrong with the interface? It looks pretty much the same as other image editors except if you have a potato resolution.
