If you need to edit images you probably know Photoshop as THE Software to do this.
But Photoshop is expensive and if you have added some plugins and a new Update release, you may stick with the old version to not loose those plugins. This is just frustrating and there is a alternative Solution for most Users. And the best part: It is Opensource and FREE
GIMP 2.8 is just released with new features and you can download it and use it at no cost. Just give it a try: DOWNLOAD GIMP 2.8
Let me know if you like the Software. Write a comment if you like it, and share it with your friends.
