There are a lot of open source video editors available for Linux: Kdenlive, Pitivi, Openshot, Olive, Blender VSE, Shotcut, Flowblade, Cinelerra, and a bunch more.
However, as far as image editors go, I only know of GIMP. (I’m talking manipulation of raster images, not digital creation or vector image editors)
Are there any alternative to GIMP on Linux? Is it much more difficult to develop an image editor compared to a video editor? (In terms of available libraries, etc.)
Thanks for your feedback!
P.S.: This message is not a troll. I’m a long term user of GIMP, and I’m just curious about the “under the hood” side as well as the lack of alternatives.
