I am reasonably experience developer on photoshop and it has spoiled me to no extent. I am searching for a graphic tool on fedora which is simple to generate images that I would like to use on my android apps. I have tried my hand with Gimp and it seems to have huge learning curve. Is there any photoshop like app in Fedora which can help ?
First of all, congratulations on using Fedora, it's amazing.
You can always install plugins for Gimp to imitate certain photoshop behaviours.
