In Windows I've used Paint.net which is an excellent and free Photoshop look-a-like application.
Does anything similar exist for OSX?
I tried Pixen(?) and it crashed constantly and couldn't even save .jpg files.
I've used Gimp on Linux, but I've found that it's clunky on the Mac with the X11 version. Is GimpApp much better? I haven't tried it on Lion yet.
I absolutely hate Gimp. I hate to talk bad about open source software but it in my opinion is one of the worst common open source programs I've used.
Some people like it though.
The GIMP is an X Windows-based application. X11 on MacOS X is a standard port of the X Windowing System. The GIMP running on X Windows on MacOS X is no less native than the GIMP running on X Windows on Linux....
In defense of GIMP, the program looks better on Debian Linux, where it is a native application on Linux. ...
I played with it for a bit, but didn't give it much time. How strange is the interface? - it looked fairly normal at first glance - palettes, tool bars, etc..
I like that it has vectors/rasters... anything about this program that would make it a non-starter?
