For my other website, Atari Gamer, I tend to have to process quite a few images that I find online. I use GIMP for most of this and typically work with the Rotate Tool and the Perspective Tool. I've been using the same version of GIMP for a number of years now (version 2.8) and have always found it to be clunky and slow. For some reason it didn't occur to me to upgrade until today, and I'm really glad I did!

The 2.10 version is a huge performance improvement over the previous version that I've been using. Both the Rotate and Perspective tools can be used in real-time and no longer make it feel like you're running GIMP on a prehistoric computer. The tools are snappy and responsive, just like they should be.

I can't say that I really like the new interface (hence the change back to the old icons and the light theme). The other negative is that single-window mode still feels slow when the window is being resized. Overall though, this is a huge improvement.
