RE: How many people use gimp?
Years ago I used to be a user of Jasc PSP, an excellent application. Corel (and Adobe) know how many users because their software 'phones home' with monotonous regularity. Sad

Gimp does not do that but when it was hosted at Sourceforge the number of downloads (Gimp 2.8.6) was recorded.

Since moving to gimp.org + mirrors I can not see any recent stats from there.

According to Sourceforge about 5 million. You can subtract from that Windows users who continually download and re-install, non-users who download and abandon but add on linux & OSX users, users still using Gimp 2.6.x (I do not suppose there are many active 2.4 users left) and other sources such as Partha.

So a grand total of: "quite a few"
