Gimp > Photoshop

Believe it or not, there are areas where Gimp is more advanced than
Photoshop. The recent fuss over the latter’s introduction of “Content-Aware
Fill” (which was available as a Gimp plug-in for years) is one example

which shows that those with bigger promotional budgets can easily overshadow
those who are rightfully owed the credit.

Here’s another example: how easy is it to create seamlessly-tiling fill
patterns? The Web is full of tutorials on doing it in Photoshop, using a
special feature where you can wraparound the image so the edges are
positioned in the middle to make the seams obvious, so that you can use
various manual techniques to smooth them out.

Well, guess what: Gimp doesn’t need all this rigmarole, because it already
has a built-in one-step “Make Seamless” function, which I just used to write
up this tutorial here

Yes, it really is that simple.
