So our target audience is non-English speaking photographic
professionals that don't already like Photoshop?  I just don't see
that as a very big niche.

The GIMP Vision briefing ( says GIMP is for "high-end photo manipulation . . . for intense use . . . intense in the number of hours users put in to really master the tools; this is exactly the same as the centuries old process of how people, through apprenticeship, master a certain craft"

If GIMP isn't competing with PhotoShop for high end users, what software is currently used by the core users that GIMP is targeting? Are all of them already using GIMP?

Digital artists have Krita which competes with and in many ways is much better than PhotoShop, as former PhotoShop users will attest.

To have a viable free/libre alternative to PhotoShop with its proprietary file format and cloud-based access, photographers *need* high bit depth GIMP to compete with and be better than PhotoShop.
