Real but difficult to work with

This is no fake. xGimp does exactly what pc version does. I only tried hue saturation, brightness, rotate and few others functions and can confirm this is the real deal. Its awful however on Iphone. I can’t work without a mouse. Thanks for this though, one can never know when your computer got stolen and you still need to make that banner.... im gonna keep it

Oh dear

I truly am disappointed with the photographic apps available on iOS, and the way photo editing software is going anyway, with expensive monthly subscriptions for features you’ll only use if you have regular workflow or a serious serious hobby deserving such a commitment. I used to be happy with earlier full(ish) cost photoshops which allowed me to pursue a semi serious hobby, and enter amateur competions. But am I now being nudged out.

There is clearly a market for a cost effective, feature generous editor, and thought GIMP might be a good shout. I have some respect for the PC version.

So thought this was a freak series of reviews, but no, it really doesn’t work. The app loads, but doesn’t even allow me to select a photo either local nor remote.

So, unless there is something that I am missing, this seem to be non functional on 2019 iPad Air iOS 13

Excellent app!

Basically lets you use GIMP on an iPad. What more could you want? Just to say, you have to click on remote editor if you want to use GIMP like you do on a computer.
