Overview

GIMP, as with most photo/image editing tools, involves a steep learning curve. Many tasks require a sound understanding of the principles involved and the techniques via which those are implemented

Also in common with other photo/image editing tools, GIMP files are very large, occupying

  • up to 800 MB of RAM
  • up to 200 MB of disk space per file
    • or several times this for files that are used with Mac OS X

Advantages

  1. freely downloadable
  2. available for Linux Mac OS X & Windows
  3. supports many export/import formats

Disadvantages

  1. less capablility in some functions, than expensive, commerical alternatives
