Is GIMP better than Photoshop?
I pose the question to the audience.
For most of the design community, Adobe's Photoshop has always been there for you. You create your layered graphics and export it to your site and everything is well and good.
But now, there is a new face on the scene.
GIMP is a raster graphics program that can easily replace MS Paint. But can it replace Photoshop? I'll leave that argument to the GrimThing.com. They've posted an article about who would win in the battle between GIMP and Photoshop.
Ehh...personally, I would recommend Adobe Fireworks (Raster AND Vector graphics capable). :-)
