Nicely written and useful blog.
I wonder if you ever tried GIMP? From what you describe (and my earlier experience with Photoshop) I see a lot of similarities in the possible workflows in the two. So I wonder what would be impossible to do in GIMP that Photoshop allows to do. It's just my curiousity... :)

Thanks for your comment Andromantic. Here's a short and very abbreviated statement regarding Photoshop and Gimp from the Software Institute: It must be noted, of course, that GIMP does not have the full range of tools that Photoshop does. It cannot offer every single feature and will therefore suffer in comparison by those demanding more than standard editing tools and free-form creation. For those who do not require the more advanced functions, however, it will provide an appealing alternative — one of quick speeds, straight-forward software and no need for funds.

Could you give a link to that review? I wonder what are those advanced tools they are talking about. :)

Andromantic, I can't locate the actual review from the excerpt, but there are a plethora of reviews, both side by side and anecdotal that have been written about the programs. Here's a few that seem to reflect the general opinion of the reviewers I've seen: 'PhotoFinishs Review' Ongoing and Background Exposure or PCWorld Review of Gimp

Hi Lightart! Great post and portfolio too. :)
Andromantic, some years ago I've tried Gimp and its modification named Gimpshop (it was very handy for me, familiar with PS, especially using the same shortcuts as PS).
Well, Gimp is very powerful program and it provides many great tools, but there was some reasons that I do not use it (and that was impossible to achieve in GIMP ;) ):

Gimp/Gimpshop does not support CMYK.
Is cropping a layer to a working area (everything outside the visible area was removed).

Maybe these inconveniences were removed until now...
Beside that, I can really recommend Gimp.

Well, let's talk something about PS CS5.
Look at: Terry White’s Top 5 Photoshop CS5 Features and discover its new and powerful tools.
Do you find them useful?
Also Camera Raw module gives you the possibility to adjust a photo by selecting the model of camera and lens you have used – I did not found that in any other stuff.

In fact, Photoshop is a unquestionable leader in photoediting and manipualtion software market and is worth its price.

Besides you are using a program A or B, yours imagination gives you the biggest possiblilities.
And it's great to attend such a creative community here on Dreamstime!

Michal, many thanks for your insights! :)
I did not actually find any CMYK feature in my GIMP. Strange they would not introduce it. As for the canvas, one can increase it manually if needed (if that's what you meant). Still need read more of comparison reviews of the two...

When you create a %50 gray dodge and burn layer, just remember to change it's mode to "soft light" :) I think Lightart forgot this simple step mistakenly while he was writing this helpful blog :) thanks for sharing
