Graphics, User Interfaces High bit depth support, non-destructive editing (so called "effect layers") and colour management. Three hot topics in photography editing - that users have been waiting for for a long time now to appear in GIMP. Today Linux & Photography blog features an exclusive interview with Martin Nordholts, one of the core contributors to GIMP. Nordholts speaks about the current state of affairs, explains what is going on deep inside the GIMP (and GEGL) and also lifts a corner of the veil about what is to come.

last time i tried to use Gimp it was about 1.5 years ago, trying to just draw a friggin circle... one of the most simplest things in the world to draw, even ms paint can do that easily.

About half an hour later and a few less hair on my head, i gave up.. You can tell me about endless improvements and i can ignore the seriously horrible 1980's interface of Gimp, but if it still can't draw a circle, it's a shite app to me and probably many others.

for everything more sophisticated, there's the unlimited trial edition of Photoshop that doesn't expire, and no need to crack it or be branded a thief... And don't look at me that way, that's what the majority do nowadays.
