I've been working in Gimp for years, but I've recently decided to migrate to Photoshop for a few reasons: - The open source developers are hypersensitive and get very defensive when Gimp is criticised. You get told that they're volunteers and that you should be grateful for their efforts. Well, if they want to develop software that is a powerful alternative to Photoshop (which they don't claim, I concede), then they must accept constructive criticism if they want progress. And you get told to "develop it yourself or shut up". - Gimp's rendering is slow and some key features are missing, especially when working at high resolutions on large-ish canvases. - Wacom support is abysmal. Professional digital art is possible in Gimp, but the general operations are severely handicapped. I've realised that I either accept mediocrity or I spend money and get something powerful and efficient. What are your experiences with Gimp and Photoshop?
