I don't get that comment. I'd venture to say that the Adobe suite is more popular amongst the Applests than the Peeceests. Gram is right in asking the question and the answer is a resounding NO. Corel draw is the only thing that comes close and it isn't fucking close. Apple iphoto and the more recent photos is more like windows picture viewer than anything else. Neither even rises to Adobe Elements much less some of the more sophisticated adobe products. GIMP is a suitable substitute for the novice but not for the professional.
what the fuck are you on about?
Second that. I too would be interested to learn about an existing (Apple or M$) worthy competition to Photoshop!
That being said:
– I didn't upgrade to CC because, for what I do, CS6 proved to be faster
(and I'm unhappy with their lease/rent and features coming and going at Adobe's whim);
– GIMP isn't that bad, it's mostly the very non-PS interface which puts people off. I keep it around as it has two filters I need sometimes (G'MIC and Dr
Land's Retinex). GIMP's cardinal weakness is restriction to 8-bit images, but there are now experimental versions working with 16-bit or even floating point, e. g. here: http://partha.com/
(haven't tried that yet).
As for video editing, DaVinci Resolve
has impressive features, even the free version. (Also on my To Test list…) Presumably because they make their cash from the associated hardware, at $29,995 clearly for the movie industry.
