Likelihood to Recommend

GIMP

GIMP is great for anyone ranging from personal use to a small business. But, if you are a large business and have a sufficient budget, I would recommend you to opt for an expensive paid software like Photoshop, that would provide not only great features but also public recognition.Its great for beginners wanting to start editing photos, there is a small learning curve that could be gotten used to in no time.

Pixlr

I would recommend this software to anyone, either a company or a professional; it is so easy to use that anyone can use it, as its user interface is very intuitive. It is the best alternative for photo and image editing.

Pros

GIMP

  • GIMP has a very intuitive interface so now as a user you can always layer all the images or make a different image from scratch.
  • One thing that I really like about GIMP is that it has a relatively smaller learning curve which can agitate many things that we don’t want so it’s better to keep this topic on the side for a while.
  • This product has so many large tools at the disposal stage which are used for manipulating different types of images and simultaneously exporting any type of unnecessary stuff.

Pixlr

  • I love Pixlr because it has a wide variety of tools to achieve high quality in editing images and photographs, most simply, saving them in different formats or sharing them directly to social networks.
  • For me, it is the best basic online image editor, with a very easy-to-understand and use interface. Something significant is that you don't need to register because it is free to use.
  • Its use is simple; you have to access their page and start testing the full range of tools offered.

Cons

GIMP

  • You have limited options for developing 3D designs.
  • Its interface can be somewhat uncomfortable and confusing.
  • I don't like its floating panels.

  • So far, I haven't found anything I don't like in Pixlr; I like everything from its price to how it works.

Usability

GIMP 10.0
Based on 1 answer
I interface GIMP with other software--I need to. I generally use the major calculation, CAD, word processing, and photo editing programs. In my office, my use of this software is not limited to computer-aided design. However, I am sure that if I needed this software for other purposes, it would have no interface problems.

We have never needed to use the support functions for GIMP. Any queries we have or had about whether GIMP could complete a task we have used Google and YouTube. There is a wealth of information, guides, and forums dedicated to GIMP and how to perform certain tasks with the application.

Alternatives Considered

GIMP

I looked at getting Adobe Illustrator before finding GIMP. The cost was prohibitive to me, as I was looking for something that would allow me to work on the images I had at a low cost. I could not justify buying Adobe Illustrator for the small amount of use I would get out of it. GIMP is the perfect solution, allowing me to do what I need with no cost for the software.

The support excellent, plus the price compared to others is low.

Return on Investment

GIMP

  • GIMP has allowed me to present clients with high-quality and creative logos that meet every requirement.
  • GIMP has allowed me to maintain brand consistency across a large variety of projects.
Zach Lung | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pixlr

  • Pixlr offers something new and relatively easy to use that does not require excellent knowledge. In the case of professionals can make adjustments and artistic retouching of great value and excellent quality.
