The GIMP has sev­er­al things going for it. First, there’s the price. I don’t care who you are, but com­ing up with a bet­ter price than free is a tough sell (except that you intend to pay me to use your soft­ware). Sec­ond, I’m a big fan of mul­ti­ple mon­i­tors so the GIMP mod­el of not hav­ing a stage sur­round­ed by tools is great. I use four mon­i­tors in sort of a cock­pit (or com­mand cen­ter, as my friend Mike says) con­fig­u­ra­tion. I put the tools box on one side of the image, the lay­ers / paths box on the oth­er and then I have this huge image area to work with. With Pho­to­shop, I’d have to stretch the stage across sev­er­al mon­i­tors, and that’s just hard to man­age.
