About this app

XGimp is an adaptation for Android of the app GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation), which is a freely distributed program for tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. As a result of that, the app XGimp provides many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, image editor, an expert quality photo retouching program, an image renderer, or an image format converter.

XGimp is the app GIMP that runs remotely, so it has the same features:

- Suite of painting tools including Brush, Pencil, Airbrush, Clone, etc.
- Image editor.
- Sub-pixel sampling for all paint tools for high quality anti-aliasing.
- Extremely powerful gradient editor and blend tool.
- Supports custom brushes and patterns.
- Full alpha channel support.
- Layers and channels.
- Multiple Undo/Redo.
- Editable text layers.
- Transformation tools including rotate, scale, shear and flip.

It also includes a local image editor to modify graphics, images and photos. It is based on the open source app "Pocket Paint":

- This local image editor provides the tools: brush, line tool, cursor, fill tool, stamp, circle/ellipse, cropping, flipping, zooming, rectangle, image importing, eraser, moving, and rotating.
- Drawing in full screen.
- Change the line width and shape.
- Color palette & RGBa values.

I've used gimp before, and it was great. This app is the complete opposite. It is constantly crashing. It erases any work or progress. When I finally managed to do the very simple edit I was attempting, the file was saved as a copy, but it is nowhere to be found on my phone. (Update: it says save as copy,but it is actually overwriting the original, which is another problem) Overall, this seems to exist as another broken ad revenue generator, besmirching the name of a great Photoshop alternative.

Features are comically limited even when they work, which is extremely rare. I'm an avid user of the desktop version, and I wasn't expecting the full suite of features on this port, but I spent 10 minutes trying and failing to do a simple overlay before giving up. The only things this can do consistently is let you doodle over drawings, and crash. If you're expecting anything else, abandon all hope.

There's no denying the power of Gimp. Well it may not be in every classroom where Photoshop is, it probably should. It does the same thing, and costs literally nothing. Here though, I'm reviewing this specific Android port. This specific implementation uses a cloud(server) based file system and various "modes" to go between moving around, and typing. You upload and download files back and forth. Overall this feels cluncky and can cause you to lose work. It's darn useful and free, so four stars.
