People who want Photoshop will always want Photoshop. Not a clone, not a look-alike--only the real thing will do. People who are flexible will learn how to use GIMP--and these days, especially Krita, which is becoming a serious Photoshop competitor for many workflows. My wife uses it for art instead of Photoshop. It's awesome.

My advice would be to join an existing project to make it even better rather than start a new one. I see that your project has only two contributors. That is a very low bus factor. Wxperience shows that small projects like these will very likely be abandoned in a few years (sad but true), while larger projects are immortal. Krita is experiencing a real surge of interest right now, and I'm sure the developers would love to have you on board! Check out for more information.

Both though pretty powerful have a very different workflow compared to Photoshop for which most people are reluctant to switch to Linux even though they require a pretty small set of features from what Photoshop offers. So a couple us are trying to build a raster graphics editor which looks and behaves similar to Photoshop with the help of Qt5. But thanks to our inexperience, every now and then we are facing roadblocks for which we rewrote the stuff a couple of times. We would love some help from you guys, better if you can correct us where we are going wrong.
