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.

This year, I voted for Krita. It has improved a lot lately and has virtually eliminated my need for GIMP (and its terrible user interface).

Gimp is the outstanding image manipulation app and Scribus was the outstanding Desktop Publishing app. I was split, but voted gimp.

I like the GIMP, but I do a lot more SVG editing, so Inkscape got my vote.

Thumbs up Krita

I also changed the vote from last year. This year I replaced GIMP with Krita. Mainly because Krita has a more intuitive user interface and it also has some nice free handing utilities that are not available in GIMP. I also get the feeling that Krita is developing faster.

GIMP - the best graphics app available, but it does have a steep learning curve.

I vote GIMP. Krita looks good, and for anyone not a professional graphic artist it is easier to learn, but if you don't use KOffice, then you have to load a huge chunk of it anyway.
