I started using GIMP about 3 years ago. I found it through a YouTube speedpaint. At first, I was a little discouraged, because I wasn't too good with it. But I figured it out enventually. I love GIMP and I couldn't live without it at all. It makes my art so much easier and makes everything I do look much better than the sketches! It doesn't quite agree with my Tablet, makes the program lag, but it doesn't bug me too much. This program eliminates even the need for Photoshop! Photoshop can't even crop or blend well. Plus it's complicated. GIMP is great for first time digital artists, and you can also get perfessional work done with it. It's an all-around program, it's good for everything, and nothing beats it!

Pros
  • Simple Layout
  • Powerful Tools
  • Re-positionable Toolbars
  • Easy color editing
  • Everything about GIMP is a pro, really
Cons
  • Sometimes lags with Tablet
  • The 'Merge Visible Layers' ought to be under the 'Layers' tab in my opinion
