I'd like to say that Inkscape should be in a separate category from GIMP all together. Consider that Adobe puts out both Photoshop (to which GIMP is the free alternative) and Illustrator (to which Inkscape is the free alternative).

OP already mentions the raster vs vector and the advantages. But there are specif reasons to use such. You cannot have a vector image that will look photo realistic, colours will become distorted and the image size will be too large. Raster iamges can look photo realistic and have more colours in them, but when resized they will become distorted, unlike vector. For these reasons the two programs are used for different work.

Here is a very simple breakdown (that may not always hold true):

Photoshop and GIMP are used for photo touch-ups, image (photo) manipulation, movie posters, etc.

Illustrator and Inkscape are used for logos of companies and simple designs that do not require too many colors and do not need to look near photo realistic.

I use Stencyl and paint.net, they are great! But I just need to become a developer to post my games.

sorry, the professionals make games with this?
I'm looking for the middleware that real devs use. Unity maybe?
If anyone can help me, thanks.

Yes, "real" developers use FlashDevelop for programming their games.

a lot of people is saying that flash is already dead, and unity is a lot better for game dev, what do you think?
