Rubber masks compulsory?

Okay, bondage jokes aside, I've never got on with gimp. Used several different editors, most of which no longer exist, but for some reason, gimp's the only one I couldn't use.

Photoshop CS6 is great (but to expensive,) while PhotoPlus X5 is great for the price. Pity it has problems with the NX20s raws (opens the nx10s without problem.)

Raw editing? Aftershot Pro over Lightroom. But it has the same problems as Photoplus - Can't open nx20 raws. Here's hoping for an update soon.

Think I might grab a copy of this mag, and see if gimps improved any since my last attempt at using it.
