GIMP or GNU Image Manipulation Program is a free image editing software.
It can be compared with Adobe's Photoshop. Minus the expensive cost for its license.
Anyone else here using this software?

It's the only graphics program I use, since it's the only one available for my platform. And I'm not really having any trouble with it.
I don't use it ... I rather emulate photoshop cs2 via wine than use Gimp >_>;
Gimp is so lame ... but again, I'm too used working with photoshop that I just can't get on Gimp's level ~_~;
I use Gimp also, but I still have to learn all the other options I have available. I prefer using Paint Dot Net though. I use Gimp for making sets usually, and I use PDN for basic drawing. I'm still wondering if a Tablet is compatible with both of these programs though.

I use the GIMP with my wacom. Works pretty much out of the box (you need to fiddle a bit with the configuration to get it to work completely, but not a lot).
Well before gimp, I used to use my awesome "paint" drawings :]..
But now I mainly use gimp because my brother doesn't allow me to use photoshop. I also believe Photobucket has a image editing device somewhere in it but it isn't too good.

Well, I've never tried Gimp, but when my 30 day trial of Photoshop expires I may try using it instead of re-formatting my hard disk every 90 days or so.

While GIMP may not be able to compare to Photoshop, it is legally free and it has everything Photoshop has to offer (minus of a few plug-ins here and there). Some of the members on here might think that GIMP sucks, that's not necessarily true, they might just suck at using it; the program itself is only as good as the user is. GIMP is a less user friendly than Photoshop is, but being over 600 USD cheaper, I will take the difficulty. While I am no expert by any means, I do have the hang of GIMP and if you need any help I would be happy to help up, even with a few of the more advanced techniques on the software. I can also help you find tutorials, brush, patterns and several other plug-ins. Hoped I helped >.>;
I never tried them but I am pretty happy with Adobe myself. I went to school to learn how to use it and its pretty awesome. The price for any Adobe products can be ignored for some people.

I used GIMP on my windows platform at one point in time. I liked it for what it had to offer. It has a lot of stuff that can be found in Photoshop. But I didn't like how everything was a bit scattered in different windows. So I decided to go back to Photoshop. Got the Student Edition of Adobe's Creative Suite for a fair price.

Yeah, GIMP is a very neat program. Just because it's free doesn't mean it's not good. Open source software are surpassing their commercial counterparts.
Oh, yeah, I use the GIMP. I'm not terribly good at it, though it does what I need for a menu icon or a spartan HTML page graphic here and there.
