    A seirous topic by me


    Just askin whats better
    Never used paint shop
    The gimp makes simple things a task (adding text, movein things)
    and the others (Paint, paint.net are good but are limeted in what they can do)

    So what do you think is better

    Holy crap we can do polls now?

    *schemes an evil spam-related scheme*
    I actually "purchased" (lol) Photoshop before I ever even heard of GIMP. Nowadays, I actually prefer GIMP.

    If I had the choice to use either, I would always choose GIMP.

    Yes I do have a art pad thing


    Only I and mods can do vote threads(avoidin the gag about doing polls)



    Resion why im askin -
    I try to add text in gimp and it wont let me move it or make the text bigger
    Ware as in every other (ie the other two) programs I got I can do allsorts

    And the fact that Gimp isnt exactly user freindly

    What the hell are you talking about? Of course you can resize text in GIMP.

    It's easy as hell

    Hate Paintshop Pro, never used GIMP before. But I've always used Photoshop for general image editing & signatures, plus it's a snap for animated .gifs..

    Works great and it's easy to use in my opinion.

    Same here. I started my GFX hobby using Photoshop and I shall remain faithful until the day I die. :lol:
    But seriously, PS is so easy to use and can produce some fantastic results.

    Why are those two the only options? What happened to Photoshop, their biggest competitor. I find it the most organized and most support-given program out there.

    I've never used Paint or GIMP.
    When it comes to GFX (which is rare for me), I use Adobe Photoshop CS. I'm not very skilled with it though. Only cropping, text and borders.

    I think Gimp is the best. It is often said that it's as powerful and maybe even better than photoshop, and also it's free. ;)
    There're many other free photo editing programs you can try.

    Try Paint.NET (that's what the program is called, not the website)
    here's the link
