>>47652274 seems decent, never used it but pics make it seem more blated than a basic paint.exe replacement, does it load in a decent time? kolourpaint loads instantly for me, which is basically what I look for in a paint replacement.
>>47652172 Gimp is like 6/10. It's a good effort at bringing Photoshop to the freedom loving masses, but the GUI is atrocious and it lacks intuitive features.
>>47652274 Krita is 7/10 because it looks nice and is easier to use than Gimp. But it's more for digital painting rather than editing photos. I know they plan on adding more features, but I don't think it's meant to be a Photoshop replacement.
>>47652306 I use paint.net as a paint replacement. It's simple and does everything I need it to do.
>>47652306 >does it load in a decent time? SSD RAID1 here, GIMP still takes like 1-2 seconds to load but Krita is pretty much instant, it can take like 1 second on a cold boot.
Also, if you're using KDE globally, then Krita loads much faster - same for all other KDE programs. The idea is that they share all of their common libraries so that you only need one copy in memory. Good for memory usage too.
>but pics make it seem more blated than a basic paint.exe replacement Yes, it does quite a lot - but it also has a saner interface than GIMP, and perhaps more importantly, saner color processing.
In particular, as a color scientist I was extremely impressed by Krita's handling of color and color management. They really know what they're doing.
>>47652890 no one wants to fucking customize their own UI its the laziest thing on the entire planet and only retarded FOSS Linux programmers think that it's an okay to put the burden of making your GUI not look like shit to the person using the program
>>47652890 God damn the UI is so awful the devs had to make it so you can customize it. Even if you make it look like photoshop that doesn't make it function like photoshop you still end up having to deal with how gimp thinks layers and a few tools should work and be the buggy mess that it is.
