Gimp vs photoshop
Hello

I'm trialing photoshop currently and tried to finish a colorizing image started in PS with Gimp. I'm completely new to PS and finding my way around has only just begun. When I opened the image from PS to Gimp the colors were washed out and the image was really disorganized.

My question is: is the image read differently because of the code Gimp and PS are written in?

I'm comfortable with Gimp and really enjoy exploring everything it has to offer; I often follow along video tutorials and create some really neat stuff...seems like most tutorials for PS are premium pay-for services.

Cheers

Gimp is a part of the open-source movement, which has sharing and collaboration in its ADN. And tutorial authors don't see it as a "market" big enough to invest in...

Thanks.
What a shame, Gimp is genius software and obviously a labor of love for those devoted to creating and maintaining it. Thank goodness there are folks that do Gimp tutorials and explain it's nuts and bolts (folks like you OfNuts- I tip my hat to you in thanks).

Whenever I post an image I've done in Gimp I always give it props and recommend it to anyone interested...
