I've been using GIMP since 1.2 and it is now my go to editor. It is rock solid, it doesn't eat up resources, and teamed up with the various free plugins, it is a powerful tool for photo editing.

Like any other photo editor there is a learning curve. Stick with it and you will be glad you did.

This version brings G'MIC back, but seems to puke on iPhoto. If you want to use GIMP as the default editor, you have to remember to close GIMP first.

It also resets the monitor. I'd wait for a bug fix before DL'ing. The app. I've contacted the developer about the issues, though I forgot to mention the resetting of the monitor.

I've been using GiMP since 1.2, and except for a stint with PS7, GiMP has been my editor of choice.

Oops Sorry. It was the first build of 2.8.4. The update to 2.8.4 p2 fixed the problems.

I am getting a Cache Read Error. Reloading helps, but some times the page doesn't not render properly.

Guys, it a Beta. it's not done yet, and it is free. Give them helpful observations, don't whine because it isn't full featured yet.

I have no complaints so far.

Seems like it doesn't like 10.6. It's not responding properly to keys. It lags and jumps. There are other display troubles too.

Did the maintenance scrip, daily, weekly, and monthly.
If I do the script in the terminal, daily takes a while, but the other two very little time. So I tried in OnyX and it stalled in the Weekly script. After a half hour I force quit.

Also it said my hard drive needed repair when I did the smart disk option. I booted into my install disk, as they suggested, ran verify and it verified as clean.

It's still a beta, so I am not discouraged.

When trying to use the paint, or any brush, dies. Can use filters, resize, and other like menu items, its trying to add text or freehand that causes the crash.

Intel Mac Mini OSX 10.5.1

Glad you added a fade filter function.
