    I understand the GIMP is created by volunteers with the best of all possible motives. Still, even taking this into account, GIMP has the worst user interface ever conceived by Man. For all its undoubted technical prowess, GIMP is rendered almost totally useless by a user interface so completely counter-intuitive as to be ... stupid. Nothing works as you expect it to. Nothing works the way you NEED it to. Would I recommend GIMP as an alternative to Photoshop? No, I wouldn't. If the choices are scraping up the money for Photoshop some way or relying on GIMP, steal a copy of Photoshop. GIMP is, as nearly as I can tell, completely useless, not because it doesn't work, but because its interface and controls are so opaque and impenetrable as to be ... utterly broken.

    I would not download this. Tho people are saying you can't complain because it's free, is not not. Free isn't always good. As an avid Photoshop user and photographer, this is worthless in my eyes. The people saying this is a must for any photographer out there is a stay at home mom with a hobby and no training. The reason not to use it, its super slow. you can't even save a photo as a jpg, let alone tif, eps. . resizing an image doesn't work how it should doing the whole photo, it just does either length or width....do not see any interface easier than photoshop. and this is all with in trying to use it in 5 minutes....thanks, but no thanks.

    Excellent distribution. But GIMP does not support Retina displays at all; text and graphics appears jagged and ugly, and pictures are not displayed well on these displays. This is not fault of the OS X maintainer, I guess; but GIMP should be ported to Mac better than what is currently.

    Sorry, but it is just not launching, tried everything. I am running OS X 10.8.1 with enough internal and external memory on an iMac 27".
