    lol .. right on David
    The thing is that anything can be done in Gimp, that PS can do.
    It is a real challenge to do it though...take my gear tutorial for example.

    in ps that would be like:
    Make the shape
    Use a layer mode preset
    Fix the bugs to your prefrences
    Done :p

    Some things are thougher to recreate gimp!
    But i think its better to spend an hour extra in gimp then spending three months working over time at wallmart.
    Stacking juice boxes... cleaning toilets... i pitty the wallmart fool... just to get nough cash to buy ps :p

    I know take David the creator of Grey-C's Magic Image Converter. or G'MIC.
    419 filters included with that one plug-in, and their all excellent FREE usable filters.

    PS was never intended to be open-source, just as Gimp was never intended to be PS.
    On one hand you have zillions of great scrip-tors creating free filters and plug-ins for one program, and on the other...
    You have a few writing scripts IF they get paid...you do the math. =)

    It's funny because every time PS comes out with something new, a Gimp user writes a filter to do it also.
    Do you know Gimp-2.8 may be Java enabled, that means any jar file will be executable through Gimp UI.
    And we all know Java runs on any platform.Also GEGL will be fully implemented.That means no more image destruction.(actually i believe GEGL is already fully integrated in Gimp-2.7.2). They are also talking about a fully GEGL integrated layer system, which means you can go back to any effect and change it without changing steps in front of that effect....nice huh!

    So, let's say you blurred then ran ripple... oh crap i want the blur out...voila GEGL to the rescue.
    You can remove the blur even if you did it before the ripple filter. (any layer)
    This alone is going to place Gimp way ahead of PS, in my honest opinion. =)

    Folks will be going to Gimp tutorials and trying to copy them with PS...lol

    Thanks mike, the brush resource in the link you gave is helpful. *bookmarked*

    It always annoys me how people talk about gimp and it being a PS replacement. For me PS would be the replacement for Gimp. I get on PS and it is foreign, I don't understand the menus, and it's difficult to navigate. Don't even talk about doing work.

    I tried using it on a work machine once and got fed up and used Gimp. Gimp is what I learned on and Gimp is what I use. So in my opinion it's not a replacement but a competitor. I'm always excited about new releases.

    Check out this thread on another forum I frequent. Scroll down to "Import Photoshop Brushes to GIMP" and you'll see a method which will allow you to directly open a PS brush for use in Gimp without converting it to a *.gbr.

    You don't need to convert PS brushes to .gbr to get them to work. I used PS brushes in 2.4 too without a problem. Just drop it in your brushes folder and you're all set. ;)
