Gimp sucks. It's got to be one of the most un-intuitive apps I've ever seen. Try paint.net.

I'm using gimp for my photo editing. Haven't had much time to mess with it, but I'm 99% sure that it's gonna do everything that I need it to.

I use paint.net and gimp, paint is easier, gimp once you are used to it works great too.

Went to paint.net, had to download "driver robot", which then won't let you download paint until you pay 29.95 to update your drivers (which are not needed on my computer)

Hmm, no idea what driver robot is. This should help.

I have been using Gimp, but having a really difficult time with it. I just kept wishing it had a way to keep track of the layers being used. After downloading paint.net, amazing...I can keep track of layers and history for multiple photos. Fast, easy interface for tools and colors...

That is why I keep an eye out for suggestions. Thanks.
