GIMPshop

I’ve used the GIMP on and off for as long as I’ve used UNIX. It’s always been the defacto UNIX image editor. When it came to photography work, I always used Photoshop though. I’ve heard for some time that the GIMP’s feature set is competitive with Photoshop, but I still never considered it for serious photography work until I started using OS X. I’m not interested in paying a mint for Photoshop for my Hackintosh, and stealing it doesn’t sit well with me. Enter the GIMPshop.

The GIMPshop is a GIMP hack that reorganizes the UI to look a lot like Photoshop. It’s just what I needed to make the learning curve a little easier as I transisiton my workflow from Photoshop for the PC to the GIMP on OS X.

YouOS: Taking AJAX to the Next Level

I just found this little snippet from Slashdot. It appears that someone has beat Google to the punch. Google has released several high-profile AJAX projects (GMail, Google Maps) that have really opened people’s eyes to the power of AJAX. These recent college grads have an Alpha of an entire app environment. It’s not an OS in a traditional sense. It feels more like a windows manager.
