Do you use GIMP or Photoshop?

    Personally I use GIMP because I've used it for years and it works for me, also it's free so that's another reason why I use it, I can easily install it anywhere. What do you prefer?

    I have no experience in GIMP nor Photohsop, but I decided to choose Photoshop, and learning how to use it. It gets better and better when I am learning about what CS5 has to offer. Nevertheless, I wish I had Digital Illustrator because I have been using that for a while and I know a lot about that software. Digital Illustrator seems to be better than Photoshop and GIMP in my opinion.

    No idea how to use either, it always looked too complicated D:
    I have an Adobe CS4 I got for free and have no idea how to use it xD

    I used to use GIMP, simply because it was free, small and most of all better then paint.

    Then I was introduced to Photoshop Portable and I ended up using that instead, mostly because there were hardly any GIMP tuts but there were literally thousands of Photoshop ones. So I ended up learning and getting used to Photoshop.

    I think one of the few ones I have seen for GIMP, surprisingly (I'm pretty sure) enough was one of yours Gmoz. Something about xat backgrounds? I'm pretty certain I came across it when I was looking for an animated xat avatar tut.

    Bloody embarrassing that I even searched for that when I think about it...

    I'm actually thinking about making one for youtube, it would help a lot of people. The video you're talking about was just time lapse of me making a BG :P

    Well I'm a gfx artist/maker :3

    I actually use both programs, photoshop has some amazing brushes, and gimp is easier to help arrange some things in my opinion.

    But Gimp is kind of like a more simplified version of a photoshop.

    Gmoz, have you ever used Photoshop before, though you normally use GIMP? If you used Photoshop, do you think you can put tutorials for Photoshop?

    I use Paint.net to edit photos. Oh well Photoshop is too advanced (for me).

    Do not feel bad, because I have no experience in using Photoshop either. I made a design that was so terrible that the officials stated that I infringed someone's copyright after I had an image that finally looked good.

    I personally use GIMP

    I personally use, "GIMP" Because it's very simple for me, and it's very easy to work with. Photoshop is the one that iritates me so bad, because If I want to color something it usually does the opsitie. But hey, it's all good. :P:stab:
