Any love for GIMP ?
7

It's a mystery to me that GIMP doesn't get its due attention. In combination with G'MIC, it's incredibly powerful for image manipulation. There is a long list of what it doesn't do, and a long list of what it does do. However, it's open-source, free, extremely well supported and runs on all OS platforms.

I was watching Gavin Hoey (what a personable guy) create a composite image with Photoshop and realized that everything he did was available in GIMP. In my normal workflow I rely on CaptureOne for raw edits, and then I export a TIFF into GIMP as a ProPhotoRGB. There are other open-source, free, raw editors, but I prefer CaptureOne.

What Gavin does in his walk-through is create a composite where he blends a new background into the portrait. The exact same steps work in GIMP. Photoshop is a bit pricey for many, that I'm puzzled why GIMP isn't discussed more frequently.
