Photoshop VS. GIMP

,----[ Quote ]
| GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation 
| Program. It is a freely distributed program 
| for such tasks as photo retouching, image 
| composition and image authoring.
| It has many capabilities. It can be used as a 
| simple paint program, an expert quality photo 
| retouching program, an online batch processing 
| system, a mass production image renderer, an 
| image format converter, etc.



Photoshop CS4 vs. GIMP 2.6.6

| 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

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
