    Hey All,

    I was trying to play around with this program i got thats very similar to photoshop the other night called the gimp. Has anyone ever used this software? Here is the link:

    http://www.gimp.org/

    Its a free program and it seems to have alot of options, just curious if anyone uses it, if not you might want to check it out yourself!

    Yup... Used to use it all the time before I took digital more seriously and purchased a photoshop license. Its quite a nice package for open source.

    there's Film Gimp as well... I believe it was used to animate scooby in the movie.

    For those of us running Mac OS X, there's a gimp distro for you too... gotta load X server/client though.

    I've been using it for about 3 days now... thanks to Darin :hug::
    It works perfect, I absolutely love it. Except it takes time to get used to it after already being used to PS. But the help files are indeed helpful. ;)
