Once in a blue moon I check on GIMP to see how the GUI is doing, and the latest version has some improvements. However, it’s still the most frustrating app to use. I want to incorporate GIMP into my workflow so I can make a complete switch to Linux, but GIMP is extremely unorthodox at the moment, in my opinion, if you’re coming from macOS or Windows using other softwares.
Blender used to be unorthodox but changed its way from 2.8 and onward. Blender is a lot more popular now as a result, and I hope that GIMP will one day do the same.
