just to clarify - i'm here contributing from the point of view of a professional graphic designer, considering the mainstream Adobe/Macromedia market who would have never used GIMP, and how we can 'convert them over' <gets off evangelistic soapbox/>. This market are of the 'pick it up and use it' intuitive designers - they will reject at sight anything that requires coding, or obscure menus.

have them hire someone who knows gimp for the same income.  have them,
at the end of the year, tally up how much each employee actually costed
and compare it to their ability to produce actual results and know where
all of the pieces came from.

i think we will fail in selling this to people who need their employers
to provide very much cushiony stuff for them and then they dont really
know that much once this is all said and done.

we should talk to their employers instead.

who employes you?


I'm freelance, have worked for a variety of companies in temporary contracts or purely freelance (I value my independence, and owning my own company).

I would say it would take me at least double or triple time to produce a website in GIMP comparable to the industry-standard websites I produce using a combination of Fireworks/Photoshop/Dreamweaver.

you took classes on how to use this software? or self-educated?


Home-educated by a mother who did a degree in Fine Arts and taught for ~10 years. Don't worry, i'm an awful lot older than a kid now.
