Well, gang, we have some rightness and some wrongness here.
Yes, GIMP does support many of the things that PS does, such as CMYK.
But no, and it would be insane to claim otherwise, GIMP does *not* support
many of the finer points of PS, such as the ones I quote below from the PDF
document, "What's New in Adobe Photoshop CS2 [currently the latest

I have used all version of PS from 5.0 to CS2, and even the earlier ones
such as PS6, included features not available in GIMP, such as Styles. PS7
contains the Healing Brush and Patch Tools, which are invaluable for photo
retouching; nothing like them, afaik, is in the GIMP.
If someone will give me a place to post them, I will submit examples of the
Healing Brush and the Patch Tool at work. I defy GIMP to duplicate that with
