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.
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.
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.
This is a very technically impressive program, to make it work as well as it does given the limitations set by Android there should be nothing but praise for this developer. That being said it should have been obvious from the get go that gimp was never made for mobile and so naturally while it can work this is going to be clunky. It works very well on the Galaxy Note 5, even runs surprisingly smoothly however naturally no matter what I set the resolution to things will either be too big or too small. I am also very impressed that it supports pressure sensitivity from the pen. I hope to see other great applications made by this developer.
Love Gimp and Inkscape but... I really don't like giving bad reviews, especially for software I have loved on the PC but this app has in no way been optimized for android and small screens. It is completely useless on my Galaxy Note 4.
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:
