But Darktable blew their brains out when they chained themselves to a dead project with Rawspeed. With Wayland there is no longer any way to calibrate monitors so you can't do professional work flows on Linux any more any way.
    Re calibration, I just switch to X11 to calibrate and then switch back to Wayland.

      GIMP has been in some ways put aside by Krita, which is much more usable.

        I don't know, but maybe less. The jump from GTK 3 to 4 is much smaller than that of from GTK 2 to GTK 3.

          Why should it switch to a proprietary sold toolkit that would enslave that project to one companies will.
          Some people are learn resistant, others already knew in 1996 that this will be a bad idea.

          Gimp always used GTK in special and interesting ways, that made the 1->2 port hard and it makes the 2->3 port even harder. Non the less it is now done to quite straight forward standard GTK3, a GTK4 port itself would not be a big issue though I believe that the Gimp people want to leverage the new rendered features as well as the build in shader support. It simply depends on how much they want to get in a single release.

            Krita is a buggy unstable mess, but it is quite a lot more stable and thought out then the usual KDE software quality. I give it a thumbs up.

              Nice timing, as I'm currently scanning old negatives. \o/

                I wouldn't say its a direct competitor, but as I've actually seen IRL, it can surprisingly be. Especially with casual users, who only use basic features and don't have much requirements. Its lighter weight. Its a free download. It doesn't have internet checking DRM. It runs on more platforms and architectures. Easy to install on all platforms.

                  I read the Gimp 2.99.4 release notes. The developers beg for feedback from users on things like input device configuration and rationalizing keyboard shortcuts. There's a Flatpak available so it's easy for experienced users to try out now, instead of complaining about feature implementations when 3.0 is finally released. I'm impressed by the GIMP, gegl, and babl developers; it's a big application and codebase and they're making progress on both stable and development branches. I donated
