I apologize criticizing GIMP for not having a Photoshop-like interface.
After a bunch of more insightful replies (mostly Carol's) I realize that
GIMP doesn't strive to be the Photoshop of the OSS communities.
I guess I have been blinded by the numerous GIMP vs Photoshop articles I
have read, and that most distros specify GIMP as the Photoshop counterpart
in their 'what is the linux counterpart of <insert common windows
software>?'-tables aimed at linux newbies.
Besides being unused to the GIMP interface, the functionality i miss the
most is the 'layer effects' of Photoshop. As far as i have understood, GIMP
will not implement this until GEGL is ready, right? So if I want 'layer
effects' in GIMP, I should contribute to GEGL first?
As I am the one who started this thread, I apologize for this too. However,
I do not think this discussion has hade so many flames, though there are
some, which is sad. To me this discussion has given me insights.
I read all the messages that created this flame war.
Thanks so far for all good replies to this subject.
