GIMPShop Review Part I

As with most Windows to Linux converts I soon learned that there are certain applications that I seem to not be able to live without, and unfortunately there are not Linux versions of these same apps. Some that come to mind include WinAmp and Photoshop. I’ll talk about WinAmp later, for now, lets talk Photoshop.

By Photoshop I, of course, mean Adobe’s Photoshop.

As an alternative, Ubuntu comes with a free (as in beer) image manipulation program called GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program. By “comes with” I mean that it is installed automatically when you install Ubuntu. So I gave it a try. Boy was that ever an exercise in futility for a long time Photoshop user. Everything was in different places, things were done differently and the learning curve appeared to be quite steep with less than stellar results. But it was there and it was free, and I thought that if I was going to embrace Linux, I better step up to the plate and live the life. And it hurt!
