    Re: Gimp question

    What version are you using? Since 2.6, you can enlarge the main work area to fill the whole screen, and you can dock the tools/dialog boxes where you like on the work screen. That sort of makes GIMP "look like" Photoshop.

    While GIMP can pretty much do anything Photoshop can, the process of photomanipulation isn't like Photoshop. The output can be the same; the process to get there is different. There are lots of tutorials on the web. Use your preferred search engine to find "GIMP tutorial."

    GIMP 2.8 has a single-window mode. Activate via the Windows menu and select Single-Window mode.

    Re: Gimp question

    Airriel, if you are going to spend significant time using Gimp, join one of the Gimp forums (GimpTalk, GimpChat, GimpForums); 75-80% of the Gimp users (and of the Gimp experts) are not on Linux while most questions and answers apply to all Gimp versions.

    Thanks for the tip about the Gimp forums

    I did not realize that 75-80% of the Gimp users (and of the Gimp experts) are not on Linux.
