    Hey, I thought I would post this thread, simply because as a photoshop user, I dont seem to come out with any "amazing" sigs/artwork, it could be just because I suck at it, but then again, I think I have "some" skill at it... Anyway, I have seen some awesome artwork and sigs done by people using, "GIMP" i.e: rell109/numb3rs. I was wondering what are some pros and cons of each, currently I have a trial of Photoshop CS3, (need a keygen) but I just barely downloaded GIMP. Obviously, GIMP seems to be a free program, or atleast for me and anyone else who got it from the same site, however, Photoshop CS3 is roughly $800-$1000, which, unless you have a keygen, is unfairly priced...

    Would you say it has "better" image making qualities? I know both Photoshop and GIMP can make decent images, but would you all-in-all say GIMP is better?

    Personally I like GIMP but I believe thats b/c I learned what I know on it.Its real noob friendly...after a few days of messing with it you should know how to do most things...so If you never used photohop its great to learn on..

    The gimp is great considering it is free, but once you use photoshop you will never want to go back.
    Very funny....not.

    I'd say Photoshop is better but I have never used GIMP. Never had a reason too. Anyway, if you want to make AWESOME sigs and avas, I would have recommended you to DutchDesignz forums but I recently heard they got hacked. I tried to visit the url but I was referred to some different crap. Anyway it was where I was tutored. And that place made amazing designs. DutchDesignz won't be down for long they've been around for about all the Photoshop versions. My ava was done by me, and that was when I was a beginner.

    yea im going to be honest, i use CS3 and its too 'crowded' to me. sure CS3 has alot of built in plugins but gimp can do the same thing, just have to do a little work to get there. plus you learn more techniques and get a better understanding than just letting a plug in do it. so yea i think GIMP is better but it doesnt get the recognition it deserves

    I use photoshop Cs2, I think cs3 is just the same as CS2 just looks different.

    Never tried GIMP. I may try it out one time.
