GIMP is a great all-around FREE! graphics editor, it has a toolset that easily compares to those of expensive professional editors. It is suitable for use in most scenarios when a graphics editor is needed. GIMP does not natively support RAW file editing and would require external applications/plug-ins to support this functionality.

GIMP has many things and many features that require improvement and are not up to the mark but GIMP is one of those few special pieces that does almost everything we are needed to do. Moreover, since the GIMP is comparable in nature to manipulative applications as well, that is why I would recommend everyone to use this platform.

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.

GIMP is a great program to jump into image manipulation and creation. I use it mostly with stock images to add locally customized content, and it is simple to use. I had little to no previous experience in image editing but I was able to navigate the software easily and figure out how to use the different tools properly. I have not done a lot of raw image creation in GIMP, but I think there are plenty of tools within GIMP to help people create what they want to create.

GIMP has been a great tool for image manipulation, resizing, and layering. It is my go-to when creating logos or adding transparency to parts of an image/logo. It is also extremely helpful for complex flyers or other projects that require many parts to be moved around and changed. However I wish there were more options for organizing large projects such as social media posts for the upcoming month within the platform.

I use it in architectural design--both for the design phase and for the compilation of all official documents that I have to send to the public administration to obtain building permits. Its very simple interface allows me to work quickly without wasting time.
Its compatibility with other softwares allows me to interface with other users who use other programs.

GIMP is comparable to other image manipulation applications, and as it's free, it's a great alternative. It may not have the complete list of functionality that other applications have, but it does everything that we require it to do other than exporting in the CMYK colour format. We have worked around this obstacle though.

GIMP is well suited for small startups or freelancers that need tools that are useful and cost-effective. GIMP provides that as it is open source. GIMP is also useful if you only need to make occasional graphic modifications and don't need the cost of more expensive tools. GIMP behaves like an expensive graphic manipulation tool but without the high overhead making it great for one-off projects.
