OFFICIAL GameMaker Studio 2 Image Editor survey

Not really fussed about the features as I tend to work in other programs for image editing unless it's something small, but what gets me is the seemingly random use of shortcut keys in the GM editor. 'D' is brush? Every other program uses 'B'. And 'O' for colour picker... really?
IMHO GameMaker's shorcuts are better then GIMP or Paint.Net

Doesn't matter if it's better or not. If I spend 95% of my time in Photoshop and 5% in the GM editor, I know which set of shortcuts are going to be hardcoded into my memory.

I think Aseprite and Pyxel Edit (to a lesser extent) do a good job of recognising this. Makes it easy to switch from one program to another, depending on the job, when all the shortcuts tend to do the same thing.
