Gimp vs Photoshop
1

I've been a Photoshop user for a long time but I'm considering Gimp when CS6 will no longer work on my machine.

Photoshop has a steep learning curve and I understand that Gimp does also. This doesn't bother me. I'm just wondering about the feature comparison.

  • Photoshop is pretty much all 16bit internally, what about Gimp?
  • What about raw camera support?
  • I use the Healing Brush quite often, does Gimp have an equivalent feature?
  • What about support for HDR, panorama stitching, or focus stacking?
  • Does Gimp scale well on hi-res monitors?
  • Run on Windows 10?

I'm not sure what else I should be asking about. What are some often used features that will go missing when I switch to Gimp?
