    Looks like the "Photoshop-killer" is available now. I'm downloading what I assume is a demo right now. Looking forward to playing with it!

    You'll have to let me know if this is a "Photoshop-killer" or just false advertising. Not that I could run it anyway.

    Maybe like the modded-iPhone killer, this actually DOES destroy Photoshop :eek:

    It's a good little app, however as with every application/product which claims or is touted to be a something "Killer" ... it's just not. It can certainly stand on it's own two feet, but it wont be replacing photoshop on desktops across the globe.

    I like it, and will likely be using it more and more for smaller image tweaks simply because using photoshop for such things is unnecessary, though for those small tweaks (Rei-sizing, adding text, etc.) I've become quite attached to Skitch.

    I think for the casual image editor its certainly a more attractive option than photoshop if one wishes to be legal
