Same here. I read that article and felt like they were bashing the
Gimp. I did download Krista to see how it worked. I ended up
uninstalling since it ran pretty slow. Seems like everything for KDE
runs slow! *LOL* Anyways I'm really used to the Gimp and it's fast
compared to other image editing software I used. In fact I"m going to
college for Media Arts & Animation and they require you to use
Photoshop..I have yet to use that program and even got some other
students to try the Gimp. There is another article in the Linux Journal
about how to make images for websites which is pretty interesting.
Anyways there are several tools out there. I use the Gimp for my
websites to printing artwork & comics. Inkscape when I need to do some
vector artwork & logos.
