Have any of you ever used GIMP for graphic and design needs?

Do you compare it to the features of something like Photoshop?
Yes. I can do a lot of things that PS do. But Photoshop has many one-click features that are not available in GIMP.
Do you use it enough to justify the cost?
I used gimp years ago and it was fairly decent but I used a copy of Photos hope CS3 for like ten years. I'm not amazing at creating images so really it didn't matter which program I used haha
I had photoshop installed in my PC for years and then it crashed.

Now I use the subscription photoshop.

I use lightroom on my phone and its completely free.
