I'm trying to get away from Adobe products (which are becoming rather agressive towards OSS), but I need to find a graphic software that can handle CMYK properly. I've tried GIMP (which has great tools) but it doesn't handle CMYK files- it only uses sRGB. I've tried Krita, but it doesn't work as well as GIMP tool wise, and I can't specify images sizes very well at all- it only works on pixel size, not inches or dpi/ppi. Therefore both are great for designing screen images, but not printed images. I even tried using GIMP to design (using CMYK colours here), and reformatting to a CMYK file with Krita. Problem with this is that the image size doesn't work once reformatted, plus I need to export to pdf which neither do and so printing to pdf means the final image size is an A4 and god knows what dpi. Anything better out there?
Some people use Cinepaint as it is designed for high quality movie work. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CinePaint http://www.cinepaint.org/ -- Robin Laing
