I'm not really a graphics 'artiste' - I use the gimp when I have to, but the ImageMagick suite is a fantastic toolkit for most anything. GQView and [X]ZGV also make good quick viewers. I'd probably vote for ImageMagick just because it's how I grab my screenshots.

Even though the developers continually break it, I like ImageMagick :smile:

GIMP is really good because I can create quick web graphics quite quickly.

I've tried 3d designing, but I am really poor at 3d graphics, so I gave up on blender long ago. Also Blender's interface is too unintuitve.

Those things aren't really comparable. Scribus is way different than the GIMP and gphoto is really needed to get those pics of a camera. I like the gimp most though. I'd get the pics on my pc in one way or another anyway and scribus has those ugly KDE graphics but is good as well.

Exactly what I thought: Not very comparable. I like to use both Scribus and Gimp, but not exactly for the same things!

Scribus is pure class. Yes I like GIMP, however, it's been around a long time and hasn't really progressed that much. Scribus has gone from a joke program to a professional quality Desktop Publisher in a short while and deserves all the plaudits it's been getting!

Thumbs up

I voted for GIMP but I really like the stuff that can be done with imagemagick on the command line.

Gimp does a good job at what I need to do, what little I use it.
But I have to admit I've never tried the others.

Though GIMP is great, Inkscape is my choice this time around because it has got so far this year. I really need a powerful vector graphics software...
