I really do not get on with the Gimp at all. The interface is messy, and some of the tools, such as the rectangle select just do not work very well, and don't work as they do in other programs I am used to using such as Photoshop and Paint.NET.
Does anybody know of an alternative to the GIMP on Ubuntu 9? I came across Paint-Mono, but that doesn't appear to work for my version of Ubuntu.
Thanks. I'll take a look and see how I get on. As an alternative also, I'm now going to try and install pain.net in wine and see if that works. Don't know if it will or now, but it's worth a try I guess. I might need to upgrade my version of Ubuntu to the new version 10
You may try Cinepaint (http://www.cinepaint.org/) . it support 8 bit, 16 bit, and 32 bit HDR images, and actually it came off from professional vfx developer who really needed the alternative of photoshop at linux platform.
As far as I know, Paint.NET is the best free image editor besides Gimp.
From what I understand, however, Paint.NET works fine under Linux through Wine. Although I believe there's a Paint.Net equivalent being produced via Mono instead.
I recommend Paint.NET ..
is really Fast and complete, I love it ^^
