Gimp is a very good software, but it could be better: It crashes constantly, and is missing some features.

Also looks to be abandoned, they are promising the version 3.0 for years now.
And even with it flaws its the best alternative for Adobe Photoshop.

Now imagine if it had a organization like Mozilla or Canonical to give a better support and updates.
It could be easily the best Image Manipulating Program.
Discuss.

maybe you could donate instead of whining on internet forums

It's probably beyond help by now. Any refactoring that makes it stop sucking is going to be a rewrite in disguise.

GIMP was never a product. It was a project.

>>46818668
Text insertion and editing is quite possibly the worst part of it.

Have you tried Krita yet?

Krita its more for painting than general editing like Gimp

It's Photoshop for poor people. Of course it's shittier and less reliable. You get what you pay for.

You don't have to imagine. You can pay any software development company for hire and they will support you for any feature that you pay for.

Krita 2.9 is actually pretty decent Photoshop alternative, since it finally has RAW & HDR support and new transformation/warp stuff. Plus they promise Photoshop-style layer effects in the future releases.

Could not reproduce. I can't even remember the last time it crashed for me.

>missing some features
Yes. I would particularly like to see adjustment layers implemented, along with a "heal" tool that doesn't suck.

They keep saying their new graphics library will solve these things. I guess they're busy writing UIs for these features in C?

Last time I tried out GIMP for Windows, it ran insanely slow and capped a single core completely when I dragged a high-rate input device's cursor (either my pen tablet or a maxed gaming mouse) across the window. Googling lead to a discussion on the UI re-initializing its graphics context on every ruler redraw and the expensive implications of this on certain platforms. I don't think they figured out what should own the pointer yet.

This. But then again all I use it for is making shitty OC and poor shoops of people from /soc/.
