Downloading Photoshop After 10 Years
I've been a rather vocal professional GIMP user for 10 years and have used it to develop iOS apps, art that was shown in major museums, etc, but it's finally to the point where I can't justify using it anymore. It's been 3 years since there's been an updated version for MacOS, and Photoshop is ultimately just going to save too much time/money in my business to not start using it. It's sad that a project like GIMP with so much potential is dying.

RE: Downloading Photoshop After 10 Years
BTW: Personally I think it would take relatively little money to revive the GIMP project. I've looked into getting grants to revive the project, but currently I am struggling too much with my own work to be able to do much. Somebody with more time or money than me should figure out a way to make this happen.

RE: Downloading Photoshop After 10 Years
Well, after a day of using Photoshop CS5, I have to say that I'm much less impressed than I expected! I guess it still is to be determined if I do actually switch....

As much as a pain in the ass GIMP can be, it is very flexible in certain ways that Photoshop is not. If you're willing to spend enough time, it seems that you can do almost anything in GIMP. Not true in Ps.
