I am standing at the foot of the mountain known as Gimp and trying to figure out if it is worth scaling (i.e., learning to use it) or if I should wait for AI-powered automated solutions to catch up and make it irrelevant. Or, will that never happen?
Many of you have no doubt seen recent developments such as this:
A growing number of photo editing tools seem to be incorporating AI, and I wonder if learning Gimp is like going out to learn how to drive a truck. Truck drivers will be replaced by self-driving trucks eventually, although a human will be required to still ride along - at least for a while - to supervise the vehicle. Perhaps a similar fate faces human photo editors or am I being alarmist?
I see tools such as Photolemur and wonder if there is a FOSS alternative/equivalent. And, will Photolemur displace manual photo editing within 20-years?
