GIMPshop Dezember 19, 2006Posted by somebodys in Arbeit, Kunst & Kultur, Mac, Software, Technik, Windows.
GIMPshop is a modification of the free/open source graphics program GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), intended to replicate the feel of Adobe Photoshop. Its primary purpose is to make users of Photoshop feel comfortable using GIMP.
It shares all of GIMP’s advantages, including the long feature list, customisability, and availability on multiple platforms, while addressing some common criticisms regarding the program’s interface: GIMPshop modifies the menu structure to more closely resemble Photoshop and adjusts the program’s terminology to match Adobe’s. In the Windows version, GIMPshop uses a plugin called ‚Deweirdifier‘ to combine the application’s numerous windows in a similar manner to the MDI system used by most Windows graphics packages. From March 2006, it supports Photoshop plugins, through a host plugin that can run on Microsoft Windows or Linux, pspi. All of GIMP’s own plugins (filters, brushes, etc.) remain available.
