GIMP was the graphic software I turned to when I wanted something that was similar to Photoshop but without the expense. I remember GIMP taking me a while to get used it and I went through a lot of tutorials and guides to work out how to use GIMP, once I was more familiar with GIMP I was using it really well making some really awesome graphics. I haven't used GIMP in a while now though as I haven't done many logo's for a while.
If I was to suggest to someone a graphics software and they were strapped for case I would definitely recommend GIMP.
What are your thoughts on GIMP? Would you say it's similar to Photoshop?
