Photoshop vs GIMP: A Complete Comparison

It’s time for an in-depth comparison of Photoshop and GIMP! In this video, I go over my strengths and weaknesses for the two best photo editing and photo manipulation programs on the planet. I talk about which software is best for professional photographers, as well as which is better for beginner photo editors or photo retouchers. I cover the best or most popular tools, including selection tools, and the photo editing tools found in each.

GIMP and Photoshop are both raster-based image manipulation programs. I use GIMP 2.10.18 and Photoshop CC 2020 for this tutorial.
