Gimp > Photoshop

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Aug 30, 2010.

  1. 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
    <http://o3.tumblr.com/post/470608946/photoshops-caf-content-aware-fill-unbelievable>,
    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
    <http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro/Image_Textures>.
    Yes, it really is that simple.
