Anyone using Gimpshop?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of using this program as it's a front end for The Gimp (which is highly recommended on CNET).

 

I see there are several sites where you can download it from. Do you download Gimpshop and then download The Gimp?

 

Has anyone had experience with this program?

 

I'd like to buy Paint Shop Pro (older version from 8 to 10), but I rarely see any good deals for it.

I am a fan of GIMPshop, it has good compression. I mainly use Adobe Photoshop CS2 though.

 

GIMPshop has the TheGIMP already in it.

 

You will need to download GTK+ and GIMPshop.

How does Gimpshop compare to The Gimp with the Windows Gimp Deweirdifyer plug-in:

I've also read that the plug-in can be used with Gimpshop.

 

 

In regard to Gimpshop itself, isn't this the original site from the developer:

I think Scott Moschella is the author and Gimpshop.net is run by Chad Smith, a fan of the program.

 

 

This appears to be a good site to download GTK+ from:

 

http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html

 

 

Has anyone downloaded all of this. Do I have to load GTK+ first and then Gimpshop?

 

If I install "The Gimp or Gimpshop", would the order of installation be:

 

GTK+

The Gimp or Gimpshopt

Gimp Deweirdifyer plug-in

 

 

Some of the gimpshop installers have gtk in them.(so do some gaim installers)

 

 

 

Any links?

GTK+ are system drivers, once installed... That's it. TheGIMP requires it to run.

 

Yes, in that order.

 

I like GIMPshop because it's made to look like Adobe Photoshop (GUI wise). It's really nice and I think you will like it.
