So I see an article on GIMP Paint Studio. It looks like it adds some really neat features to The Gimp, so hey, why not try it?
Well, there’s a several reasons not to:
1) It doesn’t have an installer. Your average user is going to choke on that point.
2) The files are on a download site called “MEGAUPLOAD” which I’d never heard of before. After 10 minutes of fighting with their idea of a captcha, I know why the site isn’t popular.
3) If you’ve already installed other GIMP extensions (or made you own modifications) installing this will probably wipe them out.
So, it’s a good idea, executed badly. Better luck next time.
