Graphics App of the Year

Yes, we know many of these apps are not directly comparable. The real question should be, which one does its job the best.

I'm trying to make scribus my MS Publisher replacement, but it's so profesional (or I'm so unprofesional) it's giving me a really hard time (so that's not what I voted...)

Wanted to vote for Gimp, but failing to provide an easy, effective Red-eye tool (in the default install), which would be useful to so many photo-hobbiests, is a bummer.

Gimp is great. But many people are into digital photography now. Are the project leaders must be spending too much time buried in code? Or living in the past? So many times they have made the right choices. Perhaps I am unreasonable. Anyway, with regard to this choice, they are missing the obvious.

I think that Krita should be on this list (Part of the KOffice suite). But out of these, GIMP is still the best for image editting.

I was in doubt between Gimp and Blender, I voted for Blender because I voted for Gimp last year (bad reason I know )

Bleder baby!

Blender hit 2.4 this year, and with it a new animation engine, support for Yafray, and a streamlining of the interface. I still can't use it properly, but that's some list of improvements.

I recently tried Scribus as a possible replacement for Pagemaker/InDesign and was very disappointed. This application claims to do professional-level page layout, yet it doesn't even do paragraph fills any better than WordStar did 20 years ago. Scribus may be off to a good start, but it's got a long, long way to go before it even equals PageMaker v1.0.

Where's Krita?

edit - while I'll be voting for Krita, Karbon14 might be worth including, as well.

Scribus won this one for me, but actually what won was the combination: Scribus with GIMPed images.
And I agree: Krita is ready to take a place here.
