Modification of the graphics program GIMP to replicate Photoshop feel
GIMPshop is a modification of the free/open source 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 GIMP's advantages, including the long feature list and customisability, while addressing some common criticisms regarding the program's interface: GIMPshop modifies the menu structure to closely match Photoshop's, adjusts the program's terminology to match Adobe's, and, in the Windows version, 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. While GIMPshop does not support Photoshop plugins, all GIMP's own plugins, filters, brushes, etc. remain available
- All of GIMP's features and customizability
- Menus very similar to Photoshop's
- Uses Photoshop terminology
This office suite is designed for both the amateur and the professional. Work with some programs a pleasure. Others make a little work. Nevertheless, I was happy with everything
GIMP is good enough itself. This project... I don't see where it's similar to photoshop... For PS users look&feel are the most important things. They could even fail to notice some missing features.
good project gimpshop.mirror
Great app gimpshop.mirror
a good 2-step start towards looking like photoshop. still looks a lot like GIMP though. there is a plugin called pspi by tor lilqvist which gives support for photoshop plugins. could use a GUI rewrite, but that's a major project. I would change the menu item for File->Create and rename it Acquire. bad name everybody wonders how to use a scanner with GIMP. I have been bucking for this change in the GIMP mailing list. also, you incorrectly categorized this as a vector-based tool. it is a raster-based tool. SVG is a vector-based tool (such as Inkscape). vector based tools don't get the "jaggies" from aliasing like bitmapped raster images do. there are a few semi-vector tools in GIMP, but it is primarily a bitmap tool.
gimpshop.mirror works nicely
