GIMP User Filter allows use of Photoshop filters

,----[ Quote ]
| One brake on the GIMP's popularity is that, while it boasts dozens of
| filters, a rival like Photoshop boasts thousands. You may only occasionally
| need a special effect that imitates a pencil sketch or a famous style of
| painting such as Impressionism or Cubism, but, when you do, having a filter
| to create the effect instantly saves serious amount of time. To help bridge
| this divide, the GIMP is reviving the User Filter from its 1.x releases. This
| filter is a kind of meta-plugin that allows users to import and manage
| Photoship filters or, if they have the knowledge, to write their own.



Gimp vs. Photoshop

,----[ Quote ]
| The truth is, they're both winners when they're used in the proper
| context. The Gimp just doesn't have support in the areas that are
| necessary to make it useful in a commercial application. However,
| you cannot justify the price of Photoshop for personal use when the
| Gimp will do everything it can do outside of commercial printing. I
| know I've beat the horse to death, but unless you want to pirate
| software, there is no reason to use Photoshop if you're not producing
| a print publication ? use the Gimp.


GIMPshop - Linux Graphic Software

| While the functionalities of GIMP and Photoshop largely overlap,
| window layout, options, tools, and menus have evolved independently
| and are quite different. This causes frustration for people who
| want to switch from Photoshop to GIMP or vice versa.

Gimp Tutorial - Fast Flaming Text

,----[ Quote ]
| There's a few flame effect tutorials out there, but all the ones I've found
| are either badly outdated or too fiddly. This is how I set any object -
| including text - ablaze with the Gimp, in just six quick steps. *
| Done with Gimp 2.2.13, which I'll keep using for tutorials until more Linux
| distros start including 2.4 by default. If you've soldiered on to 2.4, the
| menus will be all switched around, but the effects should all still be there
| somewhere. Click images to get full-size shot. *


Top 40+ GIMP plugins

,----[ Quote ]
| Much like Firefox, GIMP’s strength lies in its plugins, which are developed
| by the open-source toting community. Since the users themselves develop them,
| they know all the needs and conceive a plugin for everything (well, except
| making a coffee for you ). *

Web designing with Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| As a freelance web designer, I really thought migrating to Ubuntu Linux will
| give me a really hard time. I never thought that Ubuntu Linux has a very good
| graphic design tool that can do what I am doing with Photoshop. Although Gimp
| is still way too different with Photoshop, I still see Gimp as a very
| powerful tool in graphic and web designing. It also possess features that
| Photoshop has. * *


GIMP tricks: Snooker ball as a pseudo 3d object

| I don’t really remeber when and where, but once I have read that GIMP isn’t
| suitable for pseudo 3D graphics. Nothing more fallible! I will try to prove
| it wrong. *
