That fact that Ms. Rosie uses GIMP should put people some of the people who uses Photoshop on this site to shame. They produce asinine work that looks like . . . well . . . crap!

I say, "Brava!" for Ms. Rosie's creativity and ingenuity in making the tools work for her and not the other way around.

So it approves 8-bit is all you need and so much for the 8-bit vs 16-bit crap. Anyone wants his money back from Adobe here?

Photoshop or gimp or another program is a tool. It is a means to an end, not an end in itself. Creativity wins every time.

Sure doesn't since Gimp supports 16-bit as well.

Yes, I've used GIMP for paid projects, but Rosie's work really has put me to shame, and I wonder now if I should have been paid for my contemptibly inept work.
