Sounds good. :) As a professional graphic designer with 10+ years of
Photoshop experience, and 8+ years of GIMP experience, I can almost
guarantee that your staff's time would be better spent learning how to use
GIMP to do the work needed rather than try to achieve feature-parity with
Photoshop. GIMP will never have all the features of Photoshop, and
Photoshop will never have all the features of GIMP.

It is important to note that GIMP was not designed to be a copy of
Photoshop.
Although most features have a relative equivalent, GIMP is a different
program with different conventions and different graphics workflows.

I was able to switch my graphics workflow to GIMP + Inkscape + Scribus, and
extend it dramatically with Krita and Blender 3D.
All these programs are FOSS (Free software), and allow an incredible degree
of creative freedom I could only dream of before.


To use GIMP and other Free software in a professional workflow takes
outside-the-box thinking, and an adventurous spirit, as does learning any
new professional toolset.
For me, it required some patience, remembering that the effort I put into
learning to use Photoshop as a professional design tool would be needed
again in learning to use GIMP as a professional design tool.

In my case, the payoff of having a free and evolving graphics environment
that is cross-platform and free of proprietary license restrictions has
been tremendous.

Luckily, as you've seen there is a large community of people happy to help
get over any rough spots you encounter.
As a beneficiary of all the help in the community, it's my pleasure to give
the same.

Do let me know if you have more questions, and good luck to your team. :)
