I learned photoshop back in 2004s or around I remember. It was a good software learning experience at that time. In fact the software was pretty much not much established at that point. But then over a period of time the software started becoming more popular and many other companies came out with their own brands of photoshop clone. Recently one completely free and open source software also came out in the market. This software was known as GIMP. Many people who can't afford photoshop makes use of them. 


So if you have used both softwares, then which one is your favorite?

I can't say much about GIMP considering my limited exposure. But the GIMP was pretty much hard to navigate due to the interface. That seems to be the issue with the open source community. They are extremely bad at the design. And that's one more reason Adobe seems to be having more control over the market.

I prefer not paying perpetually for a piece of software I use once a quarter if I’m lucky. The UI in gimp isn’t great, but if it stops me paying I’m all for it. 

I can understand that. If you're looking for something free and don't want to pay anything, go for GIMP. If you have the money and want to invest into a program, get Photoshop.

Photoshop is sometimes worth the price. GIMP is free for a reason.

I definitely like the use of Photoshop and I personally find it quite easy to use. However, as a free alternative, GIMP really isn't that bad at all (but to be honest, it has been some time since I did use it). I would also think paint.net is not bad too. 

But, I would definitely consider Photoshop highly because it is just much easier to navigate and use.
