    Phoronix: OpenCL Is Coming To The GIMP Via GEGL

    Outside of the direct X.Org / Mesa / Linux work being done this year as part of Google's Summer of Code, one of the more interesting projects is work by a student developer with GIMP who is bringing OpenCL support to the graphics program's GEGL image library...

    Exactly. I have used photoshop since about version 4 up to CS3. Now I only use Gimp since it has pretty much all the same functions that photoshop has. The only excpetions, in my case, are free transform (the transform tools in gimp are awful) and 16-bit channel support. The only thing needed to change from one to the other is finding out where the things you need are and what they are called (usually not that different). The interface is also a lot nicer in photoshop, but not because it has a single window, but because it's just more tidy and organized. Either way, these little things aren't enough to justify buying a windows and a photoshop license in my opinion. Maybe for some people they are, but I believe that expensive tools won't make a better artist out of you.

    They've convinced me that we don't need it, 256 shades of any color is clearly good enough. Dithered, Aliased pics FTW!

    Notice I said in my opinion...

    In my opinion it is more than adequate for the majority of users. I grant you that its not professional grade but that is not what I said.
    Just piss off and troll somewhere else!
