I was looking at the Humble Bundle of Corel software. I've always been unhappy with GIMP and I was looking at alternatives to improve workflow, and get better versions of stuff like GIMP's magic wand (I don't get how people can use this even after I learned all of the hotkeys and documented options). I've been trying out the trial of PSP, and the workflow is more intuitive for sure. They both seem to do the same stuff though. The magic wand is working almost as badly as GIMP's. Am I missing anything?
The main things I am looking for are real-time previews, the amount of button clicks to do an operation, and the ability to easily mask with 1 click of a magic wand. GIMP is a weird mixed bag that is either great or suffers a lot in these departments.
If I didn't know GIMP already, I'd be a lot more tempted to go PSP, but I do, so I need reasons to justify the change/buy still. Anyone got any?
