if you HAVE !!! TOO !!! use the microsoft.exe of Photoshop

install it on a microsoft windows OS

But

Gimp is installed by default on linux
and Krita is in most repos( supports 16 and 32 bit float images)

and Gimp 2.9.3 DEVELOPMENT supports 16 and 32 bit depth images


so there is really NO need to use a microsoft program on a linux OS


as to gimp

as a a pro photographer and long time DARKROOM laboratory tech ( custom color and B&W)
and a long time Gimp user

Gimp is WAY!!!! EASIER TO USE than PS

You infer that Gimp is not easy for students... how so?

Gimp is very easy to use, your teachers and students will have access to vast online resources to support it, plus free download of related books!

Even more importantly, using The Gimp will equip your students with a professional tool and the skills to use it which they can FREELY take with them into their post-education lives with no continuing license dependency or payment oligations!

And if you are really interested in your student's welfare and development, you can use their FREE GNU/Linux platforms and FREE Gimp resources as examples to impart to them the basic principles of intellectual FREEDOM and caring and sharing!

If you are using GNU/Linux, use The Gimp!

Here are a few more Gimp resources...

Books about The Gimp - Some free for download, others print only

Wikibooks, Gimp - Another FREE online Gimp book

And of course, The Excellent Gimp Documentation

I second the recommendation to use the GIMP. Adobe does not support Linux.

I must disagree with this to this extent: GIMP has a learning curve, but, then, so too does Photoshop. Once you get part-way round that curve, yes, it is easy to use--I use it almost daily.

Part of the problem I encountered in learning the GIMP is that the GIMP has dozens of menu items and graphics artists/photographers have their owm vocabulary. Why, for example, is "Sharpen" a filter and not a tool? Why is it "Scale" and not "Resize" (I could go on)?

Once you understand the vocabulary and can navigate the menu, then GIMP is easy to use.

Listen to just the first four tutorials at Meet the GIMP and you can be popular and fool your friends with the GIMP.

Just my two cents.

Well, I agree, I might have worded it a little better... But the OP suggested that it was more difficult than Photoshop, hence their desire for Photoshop. The thought I had in mind was that The Gimp is certainly no more difficult to learn than Photoshop or any comparable software application.

No matter what they use there will be a learning curve - that is why they call them students!

A most gracious response.

The program you know how to use is always easier than the one you don't know how to use, even when it isn't.
