Note: Krita doesn't run on Windows AFAIK

I'm pretty sure Krita runs on Windows if you download the alpha versions/builds of KDE4 - I could be wrong, but a *host* of KDE apps run on Windows now. Not necessarily the most stable pieces of software, but remember, it's alpha, has like 3 guys developing it I think from memory, and it's early days.

I think it is the best freeware deal period.

WRONG. It is NOT freeware. The GIMP is released under the GNU GPL v2 - it is copyrighted just like any other software, but the GPL gives you the right to both use it, and see the src code. Freeware is something completely and utterly different ;)

Sorry, but I really dislike it when GPL'd software gets the freeware comment (nothing personal against you!!!).

Good catch, I had no idea this was going on.

Not sure if everyone is aware, but GIMP 2.4.6 has been releasedexternal link. Mainly bug fixes.

The Windows binary link on the downloads page hasn't been updated from 2.4.5, but they are available directly from the Gimp-Win pageexternal link.

This has been a community service announcement. :)

Julie - the GIMPSHOP is the GIMP with a re-worked user interface (UI) to match Photoshop, so that people moving from Photoshop to the GIMP feel more at home.

Is Gimpshop still several versions back of current Gimp? (ie: what features are missing? Color management, etc, still missing?)

Just wanted to say hi, I'm a huge Gimp fan and a user of free software mostly for photography.

I also like to code some scripts for Gimp mostly to automate a list of things you can do with a picture. For example to create a contrast mask or things like that.

Gimp rules!

Meh, the gimp/gimpshop disparity is one of the things I dislike about open sores. To get what Id like to have I want to use gimp, for what is more comfy gimpshop, and I hate GTK, which makes me not want to use it on my winders box at all. *sigh*

Welcome! Got more information on your scripts? Links? Have you seen or put them on the gimp plugin registy? What are your favourite ones?

I've had a bit of a first go at some scripts myself. Would like to get more into it. Still getting used to the language.

Just a note to let everyone know GIMP 2.6.0 was released 1 October, 2008.

If you haven't tried Gimp why not give it a try. It may save you lots of money leaving you more in your pocket for that next lens or camera upgrade.

For those who are new to PP (and digital cameras for that matter) would you happen to have a link for someone using Microsoft (think we have XP version right now if that matters).
I so need to get with the times.


I now have a gear list too:
350D, kit lens, nifty fifty, Sigma 28-70, 70-300 macro (thanks supergoat) now a BG-E3 as well:D
