Photoshop CS4 vs. GIMP 2.6.6

,----[ Quote ]
| What GIMP 2.6.6 offers that Photoshop CS4 does 
| not:
|     * You can open and edit several formats in 
|     GIMP 2.6.6 which includes support for PSD 
|     files. But Photoshop CS4 does not extend 
|     the same support to XCD files which the 
|     native file format for GIMP.
|     * You can open a layered image as a flat 
|     file without merging the layers in GIMP 
|     directly from the 'File' menu, which is not 
|     possible in Photoshop CS4. Even after you 
|     open a file without layers in GIMP, the 
|     original properties are intact, unless you 
|     edit and save the file.
|     * There are several plug-ins features which 
|     are not usually used. This reduced system 
|     resources effectively.
| Being an open source application, it supports a 
| large number of add-ons and plug-ins to give 
| you real time software updates. What's more you 
| have complete check on your system resources as 
| you will download only those functionalities 
| that you need!



Free GIMP Button Brushes

| The buttons are in greyscale so can be colored
| any way you like; they are without text to
| make it easier for you to customize them; and
| they are quicker to use than the scripts that
| originally created them. The ones shown in the
| image are only exemplary of the goodies given
| away in the download.

| While Eclipse tools may have first appeared in some companies after
| grass-roots efforts by individual developers working on isolated projects,
| the open-source developer community is now squarely "business-oriented,"
| according to the results of a recent survey released Tuesday.
