I do generally like these lists, but I think I’ve seen different variations of the same posts alot in the design community these past few months, and now we’re making lists of lists!?

I’m ready to start seeing some new fresh content, not just reposts of other peoples’ lists.

Noupe

Fresh content is for sure a useful thing, but sometimes designers would like to have a place where they can find only the best content sorted out in one post instead of wasting their time searching.

You did a post some time ago on using Gimp. Gimp claims to be capable of the same stuff as Photoshop. From what I have seen, it seems that Gimp is nowhere near as powerful as Photoshop. Would you agree?

Thanks for making available so many great graphic design and web development tips/tools!

Cheers,
