Editing programs pro's and con's in General discussions Posted 8 hours ago I use Gimp because of the free factor. But I struggle with it. Probably just my laziness. I use it for two things: 1. Take the photos that I make of my paintings, and 'square the corners'--trying to straighten the image into a perfect square or rectangle. 2. Remove backgrounds. It feels like those ought to be easy with a couple of clicks, but somehow I end up making fifty layers, and it still doesn't look right.
