Yeah, so I go and download/install GIMP here, testing it out for work and screwing around with it for my personal uses (one of the great things about actually having a job where you would be doing most of this shite for kicks anyway -- it's like getting paid for what I used to do for free!), and I must admit : it's different.

Some things I find to be *FAR* more effective and time-saving than Photoshop, like the right-click on the picture for the menu feature. I was able to cruise through images and perform simple tasks in about one-third the time it would have taken me to do the same tasks on Photoshop (yes, I actually tried, I got three images done in the time it used to take me to do one).

In other areas, I am finding it light-years behind Photoshop. Some simple things, like editing a text-layer after it is created, are very straight-forward in Photoshop (you double-click on the layer and *bam* you're editing it) yet are nowhere near that easy in GIMP (I don't even know if GIMP *can* do it, that would suck).

Initial reaction: while a nice program for some simpler stuff, and it is off to a good start, I'm finding GIMP has a way to go before it can come close to Photoshop. But then, GIMP is free, which is a lot cheaper then the I-don't-know-how-many-hundreds-of-dolars price of Photoshop.

    Okay, so not quite a year. More like 10.5 months since last update. At first, I thought that I should write about the whole lazor-eye thing right…

    I suppose I should make a mention of this. Round about this time tomorrow, I’ll be getting shot at by lasers. It sounds so sci-fi saying it that…

    I suppose a more complete review of the decade will needs be done at some point (including the question of if 'the decade' is in fact over) but one…
