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.

Actually, you can do it that way still, but you can also draw vector shapes in Photoshop (it's been a feature for several versions).

Easily draw vector circles, rectangles, polygons, lines etc.

Huh?
I thought there was NO WAY of directly drawing circle (or other shapes like rectangles) in Adobe photoshop?
From what I remember, to draw a circle you have to select a circular area and stroke pixels around it (Edit->Stroke) and this is exactly same in gimp--sure, menu arrangement is different but it is Fun-da-Mentally same thing.

Please don't top-post. It messes up the systems of organization used by the elinks-using folks. As if <img> tags in WWW pages were not bad enough.
