stonedOR you can help OSS by contributing
scorp007I do both.
paddewhat's lacking?
scorp007in the hope that eventually the OSS can compete.
WillLuongoI don't find it to be severely lacking... some of the features aren't there, but severely lacking is excesive
ezechpadde, gui?
scorp007padde: you want me to enumerate a list for you?
paddescorp007: please, go ahead
stonedI second that.
paddei'm working with it on a regular basis, and not just "quickly resize a photo" or something
there are some minor weirdnesses, but overall it's a great tool, and quite capable. photoshop also needs a long time to learn where everything is, so does gimp and every other image manipulation tool
varaonaidHi, I'm trying to copy my `/kabc folder to another distro and get the error message: omitting directory `/home/rae/.kde/share/apps/kabc'. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
scorp007painting engine is minimal, no much in the way of customizing the brush to degree of photoshop, many general usability issues such as no preview when saving so you can tweak quality/filesize, color palletes for GIF/PNG (similar to Save for Web), *many* things I can't think of off the top of my head.
hydrogenvaraonaid: you need the recursive flag usually
paddebut of course i would be more happy if krita would have all functionality of gimp :)
hydrogencp -r
paddescorp007: what? preview when saving... how comes i'm using this all the time?
varaonaidOk, thanks. Just so I can learn, what will that recursive flag do?
paddescorp007: and as for painting, ok i rarely use it, but then i didn't miss anything
hydrogenvaraonaid: recurse into the directory
`man cp`
stonedvaraonaid: you should read up on linux documents and how to use them
scorp007The important thing to note is that it's not purely the 'amount' of features a program has that makes it better than it's competition. Usability and ergonomics is an issue.
stoned~grounding
fuck
apt is not around
scorp007A graphics application should be as artist friendly as possible.
WillLuongoscorp007: That is where i would say GIMP galls short of photoshop
falls
varaonaidthanks
WillLuongoman I wish I could type
scorp007WillLuongo: that is only one area.
stonedWillLuongo: you can't compare volunteer work against people who get paid to sit there and work on photoshop
hydrogensure you can
stonedit is OSS, contribute or shush
paddescorp007: and colour palettes... you can create own palettes, or choose some predefined, where is the problem?
scorp007padde: I'm referring to indexed images
hydrogenit either is better or it is not better
scorp007color tables, for gif/png the like.
stonedhydrogen: I agree
