my customer say me that he want a new graphic workstation. He said:
"give me a good machine with win xp and photoshop for handle tiff image
that can have 400/500 MB ", and have replied: "xp and photoshop? No!
linux and gimp!".
I install it, but after a day of tries, I see that gimp can't work very well with these big images! My tries:
hardware: cpu amd 2600+, 1GB ram, hd 80GB Maxtor, ati 7000 64MB
OS gimp time open(400MB) time curves linux mdk 10.0 2.0 40 sec 80 sec linux mdk 10.0 1.2 20 sec 70 sec win xp 2.2 35-40 sec 70 sec
OS gimp time open(300MB) time curves linux mdk 10.0 2.0 20 sec 40 sec linux mdk 10.0 1.2 15 sec 35 sec win xp 2.2 35-40 sec 40 sec
Time curves is a modify of a color curves. (image -> color -> curves)
I see that on linux OS, there are a lot of cpu work (with top) about 100 % all the time. On win OS, there are a lot of HD work, and the cpu work about 40-50 % (see on task manager).
I try to install photoshop on win and it work very well with these images and bigger images.
Is this correctly, so gimp don't work well with these big image?
P.s. This is not a critical about gimp, only a little question.
Thanks for replies and for gimp work, Michele Petrazzo Italy _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimpfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
