    "My friend Bill wanted to be placed on the beach to convince his girlfriend to go with him on a vacation, but he's never been to the ocean either. I used Gimp to swap him onto a nice, sandy beach, even though he took a picture in his backyard, with nothing on but swimming trunks. Totally convinced his girlfriend though!"

    "Gimp claims to be a rival of Photoshop and to some extent it can be the truth but the reality is, the Photoshop is the sole representative of the league of its own. There is no argument to be made against the fact that if you are looking for the best of the best, then Photoshop is the way to go and not Gimp."

    "Been using GIMP for years already and based on my experience this is perfect for creating graphics for websites and logos as well as photo editing. Let's be honest professional photographers might want to use Adobe than this but for me this is a fantastic tool that is free and can also be your learning curve before you buy the paid software out there.

    "I think using this program can be very complicated at first, it will take some learning. It is free though, so don't worry about burning a hole in your pocket. Just honestly I think that using Photoshop is easier and the layout makes more sense. I find GIMP to be confusing, even just downloading the help menu to get help is confusing in itself. I find Photoshop more user friendly, and GIMP for people with more computer or coding knowledge. That all said GIMP does have many good features and tools to create awesome art and let your creativeness free."

    "I used Photoshop for years and was very happy until Adobe decided to go to a subscription model. It is a good concept, but there are tools out there that will do nearly the same identical things as Photoshop and Gimp is the best alternative. Not only is Gimp free, it has nearly all of the same features as the other guy. You can't ask for more than free and Gimp should be on everyone's computer."

    "I was searching for resources for removing red eyes in a photo that I was going to put in my scrap book. I thought I would give Gimp a try since it is a free image editing software that many people seem to like. It did not work for me. The main problem I encountered was the interface. It is not intuitive at all. I ended up uninstalling this software and using something else."

    "I think this would be a great program for editing photos, however, I think any simple photo editing program would get the job done. I think this program would be successful if you wanted to do more with your photo than just remove red eye. It would get the job done nonetheless, I just think this program is capable of so much more than removing red eyes in photos."

Finally I found exactly what I was looking for in Gimp. This program has everything I need to create amazing works of art. Best part,  the interface is customizable, and it's free. But i dont think this app specializzes in painting."
