You know I'm getting out of Gimp exactly what I paid for it.
It's missing basic tools, hates on my fonts and takes at least three times as long to make a comic.
So how is your day?
What basic tools are you missing from Gimp? It has the most extensive collection of image processing tools I know of, and it certainly has a few basic functions in there as well.
If you can master Gimp, it can be insanely powerful, even more powerful than Exile's selves put together! :D
Also, since Gimp is open source, if you can't find what you're looking for, you can always ask someone if they'll start a code branch for it.
Last, but perhaps not least it's name is "The Gimp" Perhaps you have a fake or some other software trying to make a success on The Gimp's name?
In short, there's a ton of information out there, and GIMP can produce fantastic results! :D
Actually, it's name is GIMP - short for GNU image manipulation program. :)
