Because I have been using it (mainly to quickly open a camera-produced .jpeg,
rotate, crop and rescale it, and never work on it again) for over 15 years.
Because it is the only serious image manipulation prog for Linux.
Pity the recent changes have made it so much less pleasant to use; every time I
have saved my work back to its original .jpg and the stupid prog claims I have
not saved it, I heartily curse those responsible, and wish them to suffer both
lumbago AND hiccough......
It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo
retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production
image renderer, an image format converter, etc.
Not just for the simple rotate,crop and rescale.
Why not use Phatch then Linux version available...
