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.

Unity

Unity is excellent for 2D and 3D games and educational experiences. It is well-suited for VR and AR development. It is also a great platform for mobile games. It is less-suited for non-game purposes (although it can certainly be used for those as well), or educational experiences. It is also less-suited for AR experiences that are highly complex, where you will probably want to write the native code in Android Studio or Xcode, as the case may be. It is theoretically less-suited for cases where performance is a huge concern as well, although, in my experience, performance has never been a problem.

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.

Unity

  • Unity is a multiplatform game engine. It has more than 20 options for exporting your game, ranging from desktop, mobile, console, web and, lately, VR and AR. Unity was one of the first game engines able to export games playable on internet browsers and it helped to cement the World Wide Web as a place fit for gaming.
  • Unity has a very smooth learning curve for beginners. It is easy to start and soon you are seeing some tangible results of your efforts. The game engine has all sorts of helpers and shortcuts to facilitate some frequent tasks in game development.
  • Another of Unity's advantage is the access to Assets Store from within the game engine, allowing the user to import instantly objects, scripts and textures from the store into their projects. Such easy access to these elements from inside a project greatly enhances speed production and is particularly helpful to beginners.

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)

Unity

  • To create an app, you'll need to integrate a variety of technology.
  • Compatibility Issues arises sometimes after update
  • Continue to develop ML learning models for AI.

Usability

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.

It's actually incredibly easy to use given the complex tasks you have. Once you learn the various windows it becomes second nature. Compared to something like Blender (which I would probably rate as a 2 on usability), the learning curve of Unity is a breeze! The only improvements I can think of would be to streamline some common workflows so you don't have to dig through menus to find them.

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.

I have not had to use Unity's support extensively. This is likely because there is so much documentation and so many classes available for free online. Due to this, there is little need for support. They were very responsive when I requested educational licensing. Setting it up and providing it all quickly.

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.

Unity

The ease of use of Corona although superior to unity does not stack up to an overall better experience. Unity asset store needs some work period the Corona asset store is brilliant. In Android Studio getting the simple projects to build is very time consuming and worthwhile. In Visual Studio it is easy to debug an application in unity by attaching to process. I selected unity above Corona because of the possibilities for expanding to the desktop. I could not use Android Studio as quickly as I could use unity and Visual Studio. I could use Corona in under one hour and it would serve all of my needs at the moment. However, it does not have the expandability or extreme boost in sales numbers that could be achieved.

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.

Unity

  • Unity has a positive impact because, as of now, we don't have to pay for our license because we do not go beyond the revenue roof.
  • We cannot say more than that because the games that we are producing in Unity are not yet launched.
