GIMP will first impress you by how it is to download and launch. The newest release doesn’t need X11 environment to run thus enabling to run as any native Mac OS app would. It also conforms to the standard layout of most of the best photo editing softwares out there; people who are accustomed to a different program will need little time to no time to adjust to GIMP’s interface. Most of its tools are all clearly laid out to ensure you don’t waste time when working. An important feature is its customizable interface. Users who prefer their tools arranged a certain way will have the ability to do so with ease.
A wide range of basic tools such as the paintbrush and eraser are at your disposable as well as more complex tools such as special effects filters, image exposure controls such as levels and curves and color controls. The correction mode, a feature exclusive to for-pay programs(until now), is a powerful feature that enables you to rectify barrel distortion and perspective problems.
The Cairo graphics used result in smoother graphics that can be processed in 16 bit and 32-bit modes, integer or float as you see fit.It also offers hardware support for devices such as USB controllers, MIDI controllers as well as pressure and tilt sensitive tablets. GIMP works with many file formats such as JPEG, GIF, PSD PNG, TIFF, Autodesk, FLC, PostScript, Targa and Paint Shop Pro PSP.
Users who prefer to work with multiple screens will find that the multi-column dock features is quite handy. The single window feature makes for a neater interface while at the same time eradicating the unstable nature of the multi-window mode. GIMP uses image layer groups for a seamless and more effective experience. The use of thumbnails to distinguish multiple tabs is a neat trick that most users will appreciate. Another great tool is the canvas text feature that allows you to manipulate text without having to put a separate window. Considering that GIMP is free software, the cage transformation is a pleasant surprise. It allows you to alter distorted image perspectives through complex transformations on a specific part of an image.

Improving curves editing and Curves tool:
Generic curves interaction
The interaction with curves in general has been greatly enhanced, which is an improvement both to the Curves tool and all other places where curves need tweaking (currently paint dynamics and input device settings):
Relative motion when dragging points
When dragging an existing curve point, it won’t “jump” anymore to the cursor position upon pressing the button. Instead it will move relatively to its current position as the cursor moves. This allows selecting a point with a quick click without moving it, and adjusting a point position more easily.
Additionally, when the cursor hovers above a point, or when dragging a point, the coordinate indicator now show the point’s position, rather than the cursor’s.
Snap to curve when holding Ctrl
When holding down Ctrl while adding or dragging a point, the Y-coordinate will snap to the original curve. This is particularly useful for adding points along the curve.
Likewise, the c

|Gimp for Mac 2.10.4 Jul 7, 2018||
Remove gimp_display_shell_draw_background() and all clipping hacks for drawing the canvas background. This optimizes away one entire step of drawing of image size, for each expose.
Font loading does not block startup anymore. Only consequence is that the Text tool may not be usable immediately if fonts are not fully loaded yet (and will output an appropriate error if you do so). All non-text related activities can be performed right away.
Change of the URL from bugzilla to gitlab where appropriate.
New tool option manager to better keep track of user context and paint options in a consistent manner.
The Dashboard dockable dialog now has a 'Memory' group that shows memory-usage information: the currently used memory size, the available physical memory size, and the total physical memory size. It can also show the tile-cache size, for comparison against the other memory stats.
