Today, I had to explain to an 80 year old woman who lives on my land what a gimp is.

Why? Because she sent me multiple messages about these "amazing gacha Halloween robots" and how I had to see them. I tp'd in. They were dancing animesh gimp suit ladies with a shiny affect texture, the kind that only has the mouth of the suit open for oral stuff.

When explaining that GIMP is a free alternative to Photoshop that cheap people like me use I've gotten looks from strangers that overhear the conversation.

"Go with GIMP cause it's way cheaper then the real thing. What?!"

The online free web based photoshop tools have been proliferating and getting a lot better in recent years. I mean, I still use GIMP, but photopea isn't bad, and I keep hearing about others out there.

I'm pretty sure Argent just slam-dunked "Geekiest Sentence on VVO Today." Still a few hours to go, but it is a high bar.
Well the day ended in my part of the world just seconds ago.

How? Does it convert it to SVG or something?
It supports distorted text layers, and last I checked GIMP required you to rasterize the layer when you distorted it.

I'm sure you have to save as PSD to save them.

GIMP still hasn't got text layers quite right.

Kicking my ass out the door to the landing zone when I'm trying to teleport to a thing in your store is just going to annoy.
