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.
