Just Does Not Work I love GIMP and have been using it for years on my laptop. Although there were ambitious and good intentions with this app, it just does not do well on Android. Too much lag, issues with resolution, slow response, etc. Try something else. This one just will not give you the performance you need to make even the simplest design changes to an images of even a text graphic.
It does work, it only takes some effort to set everything up. for me: - understanding what resolution, scaling worked best - configuring gimp for easiest possible work with an interface not really intended for a tablet. - understanding how to summon the keyboard (read the app notes first!) - getting rid of Inkscape which I do not need that... and I am still learning. All things considered, once you configure what you can, nad come to terms with the rest... it works as advertised. I would still pay big money (in app terms) for a native android porting of the gimp anyways.
X cursor drifts An interesting port. Sadly I can't use it as the x cursor just drifts. So after 10 seconds it's always At thr edge of screen, so tap anywhere and it affects the edge (where there probably aren't any buttons) note3, stylus in holder , hands in my pockets.
To the developers... I have gimp on my pc. You just cant port gimp to android without adapting it more for tablet/android. Look at CLOVER Paint here on the play store to see what a windows type art studio app on look SHOULD look like. Your gimp shouldnt be the way it is now which is badly ported to android devices. Need work work work.
Works absolutely fine. BUT very heavy app. It loads a Linux kernel with a xfce desktop. It takes 5 min on my S7 Edge to be fully operational... Don't choose a native resolution but half of it works fine for me. Police's size x0.7 is OK. Use an external mouse with a USB dongle. PS: Microsoft users might be disoriented... Much easier if you have some knowledge with Linux environment. Many thanks for this app.
It's GIMP. Once I paid attention as it was loading, I set the screen resolution to 800 by 460, the font to 8, and it was just like using the GIMP I've been using for many years. All the drawing apps I tried before I thought about GIMP were useless in comparison. Get it and pay attention as it loads, the words go by pretty quick (for me) and had to keep reloading to read what I needed to read.
This app requires 1.7 Gb of internal storage during installation, uses 1 Gb of internal storage after installation, and cannot be moved to SD card.
If you have Error -24 - install this version:
Fixed keys # @ + not working with on-screen keyboard.
