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.

Topaz Gigapixel AI

If you have high resolution images, it does a remarkably good job at resizing and resampling. It has to have something to work with, so I recommend it only be used on good quality images. On four to five megapixel images, I don't think it works as well as on my 20+ megapixel photos.

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.

Topaz Gigapixel AI

  • Upscale images for incredibly well
  • Cleverly fills in lost detail
  • There’s some control or you can also have it fully automated
  • Quick to use

Cons

GIMP

  • The UI could be revamped to reflect more modern UI trends (for example, material design look)
  • The Export menu could be made more intuitive and allow to easily choose file extension, quality etc.
  • Would be great if GIMP natively supported digital negative files (RAW)

Topaz Gigapixel AI

  • Currently, it doesn't support RAW images. I'd like to see that.
  • It can be slow on older systems. I recommend newer hardware.

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.

Topaz always responds to my questions in a few hours or a day at most. They've been able to explain their answers and give detail I needed to complete my work. Their instructions are quite clear and easy to use. I haven't had to reference any third-party support sources to get answers.

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.

Since they aren't direct competitors I don't expect PaintShop to hold up to a specialized piece of software. PaintShop allows you to resize but it's not intended to resample as well as Gigapixel AI.

Return on Investment

GIMP

  • It can be run on low-resource computers.
  • It is cross-platform software.
  • It has excellent support and an active community that keeps you updated.

Topaz Gigapixel AI

  • Saved time and money when clients have a limited budget for imagery and supply their own images for use
  • Saves time in choosing alternative images especially if there’s a perfect one to use but the resolution is sufficiently high enough
