[QUOTE]\nI forgot to add:\n\nIn reality many Photoshop users (myself included) despise Adobe and the\nhigh price of using it and we would love for the Gimp to displace it.\n\nHowever, the 'cost' of using the Gimp is far heavier than the cost of\nusing Photoshop so we stick to Photoshop.\n\nAnd yes, we tell anyone using the Gimp that they are not using the tool\nof choice of most serious photographers. The tool with the most\nfeatures, abilities, ease of use and the most support of various kinds\nincluding 3rd party plugins.\n\nThe OP (assuming he's not a troll) came here for help and most here use\nPhotoshop - so the replies given reflect the sad reality of Photoshop\ndominance. Akin to the even sadder dominance by Microsoft in OS and\noffice apps.\n\nSucks. But that's the way it is.[/QUOTE]\n\nWhat I get tired of is that if the word "Gimp" appears in a post, it's\nlike Pavlov's bell goes off. What will follow is "gimp doesn't have\nlayers", "nondestructive editing", "old school" and the like. (no\ncaps intentional)\n\nWho's under the impression that all of this is not already known by\nanyone who's using either program? It's not news.\n\nAs for the OP being a troll, why would anyone come back to the group\nif the original question has been answered, and then the thread\ndeteriorates into a Gimp vs Photoshop battle of the witless?
