Gimp needs 16 and 32 bit support.

I've heard it's in the 2.10 branch already.

That's great news and after googling a bit I found this.

How about folders for your paths? Gimp still doesn't have that. I may not use as many paths anymore now that I better understand how to use that tool, and the magic wand selector, but still would be nice for organization's sake.


Marketing.

Marketing? I feel a bit out of the loop on this one, but I never hear of GIMP anymore than I do Photoshop, personally. :P

GIMP has 32-Bit (Colors) PNG support, even on windows.

I think gimp needs to put back CTRL+S as Export Image, not Save as XCF. I tried to tell them as such on their site / forums / sourceforge, they just closed it immediately as per usual. Use GIMP 2.8

I also preferred it that way.

I'd hate to think the name was holding it back.

My school laptop has photoshop (packard bell included a full photoshop) and my other laptop has gimp.
"folders for your paths", what?! I don't get it. A path is an indicator for the filesystem as to where the file is, a folder is part of the filesystem so i'm confused.

"Marketing", true, no ads. But photoshop has even been turned into a verb! (as in: to photoshop ex.:; yeah, i photoshopped the image), and that's the best kind of marketing you can get. (google, same story)

I use both gimp amd photoshop. Myself and my friends think that the major difference is only the layout. The way the boxes with the commands and options are displayed. That to use in our opinion is the only difference . There might be more but from our useage that is what we have found.

GIMP 2.8 is a big step forward for the text tool (WYSIWYG is finally implemented), but it could use a lot more style options. The ability to do outlining and drop shadows within that tool would be very nice.
