Set your monitor to a super high resolution. use left hand side and dock layer,channel ,path dialogs under each other in the tool dialog and o nthe right dock all your palettes , brushes gradients and histograms etc.
print screen: no
dimensions: 3840x1440 pixels (806x302 millimeters)
resolution: 121x121 dots per inch
Still a pain in the ass with multiple images open. Add in a few browser windows, an email client (kmail), obligatory MP3 player , and Quanta+, even at that resolution multitasking becomes a PITA.
This works very nicely for me .
Layer effects and Text ....definitely need improvement
krita a "gimp killer"? are you kiddin'? last time(ie last week) i reviewed krita, it seemed like somoene had chopped its head, its arms and its legs off. 'killer', my left nostril . you fail to take into consideration the fact that development is rarely uniform. when gimp was the same stage that krita is now, development was like builders on heat - very vigorous. development tends to slow down the more complex and complete the project is. when krita one day becomes as developed and mature as gimp is now, gimp would have moved much further on...ad infinitum. krita will NEVER EVER be a gimp killer. it will never even come close. get out of those clouds and stop dreaming. end of story.
But you are right, krita isn't a "gimp killer", and will never be, it is definitively not what we want. As you may know, The Gimp means "The Gimp Image Manipulation Program", and as it name states it is intended to manipulate images, and it does a fair job at it. Now, krita means in swedish painting (while rita means drawing). So while krita will have some (or maybe a lot) of functions for image manipulation, it's not targeted to fully replace the gimp ever.
GIMP usually takes this award year after year, and being it a very mature application that shows. However for this past year, I think justice is better served by awarding this to a runner up which is getting a lot of inertia: Inkscape. Simply the best vector application I have ever used, I had my reserves with it at first, but then I discovered features that even Corel Draw lacks and it is all in an open format, way to goooo!!! This year my vote goes to Inkscape.
* As with many enterprise-quality apps, there is a free version and a closed-source version with more features
Speaking of "Dropping the 1337 5p34k"; I've noticed that all Linux CAD apps seem to have a black screen. They seem to be written by hackers who have no experience in the trades.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all that Linux has to offer, but why can't we design apps that work in the real world. Linux CAD apps are really in need of a strong dose of reality. Please note that having a home is "the American Dream", and the real estate market has been practically exploding for some time.
Is it just me, or might there be money in this business?!
When it comes to drafting apps, only serious applicants need apply. Thanks for your input, though.
It's still the only image graphix tool I use. Now if someone at the GIMP project could spend a little time making commonly functions easy to use it would completely eliminate my need for purchasing photoshop.
Have you ever tried to get rid of red eye on GIMP? What are these developers thinking?
I was somewhat surprised to see Blender and the GIMP together as Graphics app... I use them both, just because Blender is a great stand-in for 3DSMax, as is the GIMP for Photoshop. They both do their jobs 'the best', I'd say
