Overall Satisfaction with GIMP

I use GIMP to edit images and designs that come from our corporate office to make them customized to our local experience. GIMP is full of features and makes it easy to manipulate images. There are a lot of features within GIMP that make image creation and editing so simple. There are some tools that I do not use because of the high level of detail they require, but I am sure that they can be useful for some people.
  • Low cost
  • Easy to use
  • A lot of tools
  • Easy image manipulation
  • Some features are difficult for beginners
  • More user-friendly UI
  • Built-in tutorials
  • Easy to implement
  • Easily navigable
  • Tools you need to create what you want
  • Allows for in-house customization
  • Save cost for hiring outside help
  • Feature rich without the cost
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.

Do you think GIMP delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with GIMP's feature set?

Yes

Did GIMP live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of GIMP go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy GIMP again?

Yes

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.
