    I'm having a lot of trouble trying to make an animation in Photoshop and i was thinking about where should i do my animations, in GIMP or Photoshop, or have both and use GIMP for animating.
    Unless i learn how to animate i was thinking on getting a GIF animator, any recommendations.

    Well, because I am a huge GIMP fan, keep it. I've seen you do cool stuff in there and Photoshop is good, but overrated. If you must use photoshop, at least keep GIMP.

    Cool, i'll just use Photoshop for image editing and GIMP for anything having to do with animating, everything else goes in Photoshop.

    Photoshop is the industry tool, it's not overrated, it's just popular because it's the application everyone in the industry use. Go to a Design Studio and they'd ask if you have experience in Photoshop.

    I think if anyone says Photoshop is overrated, they cant use it, or at least to its full potential. Seeing what some people do with Photoshop, its an amazing industry tool.

    At least someone understands.

    It's not that hard to use really, we have to use it in College at the moment for a Multimedia Project, I don't mind it, I enjoy using it but some kids don't even know how to make a new blank page
