Modification of the graphics program GIMP to replicate Photoshop feel
An upstream source site housing the original files for this mirror is no longer available. 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

CDG Editor is a tool that allows the user to edit the contents of a CDG file (typically extracted from a karaoke disc as mp3+g). v1.3 now supports all CD+G command types. Please note that this is not a Karaoke creation or editing tools (see some of the comments below) - it is for fixing the CDG files that you have where the text is corrupt due to a poor rip from the original CD+G disk. You have to edit individual CD+G tile commands. This tool could be used to change the lyrics of a song for example, but it would be very difficult - that's not its purpose. Thanks for the feedback though. I've installed it on several Windows 7 64bit PCs but haven't tested the installer or the app on Windows 8 yet. Let me know via the support pages if you have problems and I'll see what I can do to help.
