To not sound so vein, I will say that I beleive GIMP is a better alternative to Photoshop than Open Office is to Microsoft Office.
What’s the matter with Open Office, unless you’re doing a complex database mail-merge or something? The only feature I’ve ever wanted and not had in OpenOffice or LibreOffice was the ability to vertically center text on a title page.
I’m happy to see GIMP in the spotlight, and compare-and-contrast reviews can certainly be useful.
But each time I give it a try, I am disappointed again, as it is a nightmare to use, the UI is ridicously bad for a program intended to be made and used by creative professionals, the function lack and especially the naming of tools is frustrating….
There is one single thing I like about GIMP, and it’s the resizable selection rectangle. Just to set expectations, while GIMP has many of the features of Photoshop, and in many ways a similar UI, you’ll be disappointed if you think you can simply fire it up and act like you’re running Photoshop. GIMP now has a very competent user interface, as well as an extensive and powerful set of features. And even though I, as I said, appreciate open source, if you work as a professional in your field, you can’t afford anything like this.
Well honestly I have no real experience with 3D, but often heard Maya and Blender so I guess you are right. Oh sorry, I didn’t realize taking a small portion of a statement out of context and replying in sarcasm was a constructive contribution to a discussion. No reason to believe that this has anything to do with my comment on the PS elements article, is it? Photoshop doesn’t have any competitors anymore, so Adobe can sell or even lease it overpriced and to lousy conditions. GIMP can have it’s menus reordered and functions added to make it shockingly like Photoshop.
The point of the article is GIMP is more comparable to Photoshop now than in the past versions. It is being developed with the same strong advances, and even more advances per dollar spent by users vs. Jika kita sering mengolah gambar (images) dan memerlukan software grafis dengan fitur lengkap seperti Photoshop tetapi gratis, mungkin GIMP adalah jawabannya.
GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) merupakan salah satu pengolah grafis gratis (open source) yang paling populer. Terakhir kali saya mencoba GIMP sudah cukup lama dan jarang dipakai, karena melihat penggunaannya agak rumit, terutama dengan tampilan masing-masing window (tool) yang terpisah, sehingga setiap saat harus menyesuaikan letak masing-masing tools tersebut.
GIMP 2.8 hadir dengan berbagai fitur baru, termasuk yang merupakan permintan utama dari pengguna sebelumnya. Single-Window Mode, setelah sekian lama menggunakan window-window yang terpisah (toolbox, layer, editor utama dll), di versi 2.8 kita bisa memanfaatkan fitur single-window mode. Multi-Column Dock Window, memungkinkan menampilkan banyak window (tool) dalam kolom dengan drag & drop. Layer Groups, untuk menyatukan dua layer atau lebih ke dalam group, sangat bermanfaat jika bekerja dengan banyak layer dan perlu pengelompokan. On-Canvas Text Editing, fitur untuk mengedit text langsung di canvas (gambar), tanpa harus menampilkan window terpisah seperti di versi sebelumnya. Simple Math In Size Entries, kita bisa memasukkan operatir matematika seperti penjumlahan, perkalian ketika mengubah ukuran image. Itu hanya beberapa fitur baru di versi 2.8 ini, dan masih banyak fitur lainnya yang semakin memperbaiki kualitas software ini. Setelah menginstall dan mencoba GIMP 2.8 di Windows 7, ternyata cukup berbeda dengan GIMP yang pernah saya coba sebelumnya, penggunaannya terasa lebih mudah, proses pengolahan gambar relatif cepat, penggunaan tool-tool semakin mudah.
Dengan di rilisnya versi ini, sepertinya saya akan mulai beralih menggunakan GIMP dari sebelumnya yang selalu tergantung dengan Photoshop (yang semakin membutuhkan spesifikasi komputer yang tinggi, belum lagi untuk mendapatkan linsensi harganya masih cukup fantastis).
Tapi, saya sudah install GIMP 2.6, kalo mau install yang versi terbaru, apa yang lama harus uninstall dulu? The GIMP free image manipulation software has some extremely advanced capabilities, especially considering that it is being distributed for free. Digital re-touching is something that GIMP has managed to incorporate into their free image manipulation software to make it that much better than the rest of the software that is out there. The GIMP free image manipulation software incorporates plenty of hardware support for users. It is all good and well a piece of software being useful, but it needs to be supported on a great range of operating systems, something that GIMP has managed to achieve. OpenSource applications that provide full professional functionality are nowadays a reality that is growing rapidly.
It is a powerful piece of software with capabilities not found in any other free software product. A free, open-source, image editor, the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) has been a go-to tool for Linux users for years, but has a reputation for being hard to use and lacking many of Photoshop’s features. Missing are some of the fancy layout options, as well as all the built-in effects and warps from Photoshop.
And I don’t beleive GIMP ever received near the amount of attention or support Open Office has.
I know you can do it approximately with leading blank lines but it’s the kind of thing I think it ought to be able to do automatically.
Including being able to use arbitrary color spaces (like defining special pantone colors or CMYK). I for one welcome an open-source alternative to Adobe’s attempt to force users into the cloud. The goal of the review was to point out how far Gimp has come, what it can do, but at the same time not mislead people into thinking they can suddenly power down Photoshop, power up Gimp, and set off at full speed.
Perhaps we can look forward to an in-depth review of the latest GIMP, highlighting its strong points but with less focus on Photoshop.
Some of which you’ve responded to, and some of which is beautifully illustrated in the articles pictures.
I used photoshop a lot and I couldn’t tell the difference between the two, the icons were the same, the functions the same , almost everything!
I can’t wait to see the improvements that GEGL brings when OpenCL comes online for it. Dan berita bagusnya, beberapa hari yang lalu gimp.org baru saja merilis versi baru dengan berbagai fitur baru yang menarik. Selain menjadi salah satu editor grafis utama di Linux, tersedia juga installer untuk sistem operasi lain seperti Windows, Mac OS X, Sun OpenSolaris dan FreeBSD. Apalagi yang sudah terbiasa menggunakan Photoshop, biasanya tidak nyaman dengan window yang terpisah tersebut. Selain itu, jika kita mencari alternatif software sekelas photoshop (kaya dengan fitur editing) yang gratis, mungkin GIMP adalah jawabannya.
Being freeware, this is a program that can be used by any user at no cost and features include the likes of retouching, composing images and simply authoring images.
The full screen mode that has been incorporated allows people to review their work as they go along, meaning they do not have to save and re-save their work. It allows people to essentially dumb down their images to remove unnecessary, which tends to make the images look more technologically advanced, more like those that would be in a magazine or on a poster, rather than those that would be on an amateurs camera. Alongside this it supports file formats including JPEG, JFIF, GIF, PNG and even TIFF, plenty of choice for all users.
These free programs offer their users every single advantage that commercial pieces of software bring, but belonging to the Free Software Movement, which gives much greater freedom to users as well as not having to pay a dime to use them. GoFree is an in-depth software review site detailing the benefits and drawbacks of the most popular software without having to download anything. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert-quality photo-retouching program, an online batch-processing system, a mass production image renderer, or an image-format converter.
Gimp also works as an image converter allowing you to create images in GIF, JPEG, PDF, and many more popular formats.
The very fact that we took the time to review Gimp at this point and position it the way we also think it is important and useful. Studios like Dreamworks and Pixar converted their whole workflow (using Cinepaint, though). Artists need to integrate into the workflow, which usually means delivering what is expected from them in a certain format. I look at the screenshots above and I see massive wasted space, floating toolbars, docked unorganized mess… the same reason I hated it years ago. The gist of this article is GIMP has come a long way, and the author acknowledges this, and that GIMP now a viable alternative (instead of a coder’s plaything), though not an outright replacement. Whether or not GIMP is all the amazeballs the FOSS enthusiasts think it is is up for debate, but you really can’t deny GIMP has made remarkable progress. Sehingga pengguna Windows (XP SP3, Vista, 7, 8) bisa memanfaatkan dan menggunakannya secara gratis. Jika tidak memerlukan setting lama, uninstall dulu saja baru install versi ini (clean install). The capabilities of the free image manipulation software are literally never ending and they allow people to change amateur images into those that essentially look like they have been taken professionally, which helps to bring up the poorest of shots.
Of course, the same goes for the photo enhancement tool that has been incorporated into GIMP. For casual users and office pranksters Gimp is vastly superior than the cheesy MS Paint program allowing you to become an expert meme generator in no time. Some of the available GEGL (Generic Graphics Library) scripts are helpful in performing similar operations in Gimp, though. Studios usually don’t care if a single artist gets to that result using Blender or Maya.
Atau jika tanpa plugin bisa saja memanfaatkan menu menu > Export dengan beberapa langkah optimasi. This basically allows users to reduce the barrel distortion effect that many photographers manage to get when taking images.
It allows you to perform many of the functions found in Adobe Illustrator, and has an extremely large and active online community that will help you get the absolute best images out of Gimp. Those scripts are one of the coolest features of GIMP, making it an open platform for image processing developers. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image-manipulation procedures to be easily scripted. Spacing and such just depends on the theme you use (not sure how to change that when running windows.
You can make a new layer, apply a Filter, and then tweak the opacity or blend mode, but it is a full image layer — like it or not. The Colors and Tools menus are unique to GIMP, with Colors pulling together operations that affect image content, that are usually found under the Image > Adjustments menu in Photoshop. There are some plans to try to offer equivalent functionality to Adjustment Layers through GIMP, but there doesn’t seem to be an ideal workaround for the issue yet.
The Tools menu pulls together a mixed bag of the same tools that are found in the Toolbox, plus some tools Adobe puts in the Image menu, like Crop. It also provides a window into some of the very powerful and extensible scripted image transforms that GIMP allows. Unfortunately, some of the icons, like the one for the crop tool shown, are different from the ones used by Photoshop, so finding your favorite may take some hunting.
