Does anybody use it rather than photoshop?

Yeah, sometimes, I've got it on my poncy Mac. I've got both installed (some old thread here had a nice thought on PS, nudge nudge :wink: ) and it seems easier to use for a lot of things, animated gifs being one. Good wee program, I still use it often.

In fairness it isn't the Mac's fault that it's poncy.

True, true - don't get me wrong, I'm not judging it, I love it regardless. If Steve Jobs had wanted it to be different, he wouldn't have made it that way. It is conspicuously well groomed though.

That's why I use it! ::): I quite like it actually, having used photoshop in the past, they're both good.

I use the Gimp with the greycstoration plugin for noise removal. I sometimes use LightZone also...
