Thank you for this post, very interesting.

I am a marketer in Grenoble (France). I use on an everyday basis Gimp and Canva.

Gimp is not very intuitive, you need months and months of use to begin making amazing stuff with it.

On the other side, Canva is the most intuitive photo editor ever. In 5 minutes you can create catchy images, background that do not look like an old ‘paint’ image.

So the best combo is to modify your image with Gimp, put it in PNG format, and ‘work’ on it with Canva. Hope it will give you ideas
