Photoshop and the free programs TeX, Scribus, Inkscape, Krita
etc. can work in the CMYK color model. Gimp only works in RGB.
CMYK has a more limited range of colors than RGB. Printers, both
desktop and four color commercial work in CMYK.
This is the major hangup with using Gimp as a Photoshop
replacement. Apparently adding the additional color model would be
a huge undertaking.
