If YOU have more IDEA or SUGGESTION for Gimphoto, SHOUT IT OUT! :) I love to hear it and use it to improve Gimphoto, so submit your opinion directly at SUGGEST section.

Hope Gimphoto can bring happiness to everyone...like i have enjoy develop and using this app :)


  1. Why not Gimp 2.4?

  2. because when GimPhoto created the latest version is Gimp 2.3.19 and when GimPhoto 1.0 released, Gimp 2.4 still under release candidate (Gimp 2.4 RC1) so not considered as stable released then GimPhoto stick with Gimp 2.3.19 :) next version will using Gimp 2.4...so stay tune!

  3. I have also compiled some GTK theme engines for windows including the latest gtk-theme-engines 2.13 linked with GTK 2.12 and also aurora and murrine theme engines. Just in case if you want to try another theme for the package ;)

    Link and screenshots here


  4. Hi!

    great job - Gimp 2.4 is a nice thing but I think we need more user builded "boxes" ready with useful plugins...

    --> The best thing is the GTK theme - GREAT!!! - I don't want that Gimp looks "native" I want Gimp looks good! And the GTK themes are looking good ;-)

    keep on working!

  5. I saw a mention somewhere about GimPhoto either IS or WILL BE 16 bit. Which it it?

  6. charles,
    thank's :) i will include it with next version of GimPhoto.

    thank's for the support :)

    maybe you see it at About page...
    sorry but GimPhoto is based on Gimp so 16 bit still have to wait Gimp implement GEGL :)

  7. hi, i really like the effort you put into it, i recommend people this over gimpshop. :) just a few questions how did you get the GTK themes to work in windows?

  8. Omg, thanks!

  9. Gimp 2.6 is a very much welcome improvement for me with the new selection tool. Update GimPhoto to be based on Gimp 2.6 and I will give it a try

  10. Tremendous job. Is GimPhoto already built for pre-press use?

  11. Thanks, but i don't understand with "for pre-press use", if you mean CMYK separation support then the answer is yes, GimPhoto already included Separate+ plugin by default then it can do CMYK separation.

  12. History brush like the one in Photoshop. I use that feature quite a bit when desaturating colored images, then reapplying certain colors.

  13. Hi, is there a possibility to get gimphoto speak german?
    Regards, Juergen

  14. Juergen,
    i never use GIMP with other language so i don't know how the GIMP translation works.

    is the GimPhoto menu back to GIMP original menu layout when language set to German?

  15. Can one add scripts, plug-ins, brushes, patterns, and or other stuff that people have made for the original Gimp.

  16. notwritten07,
    what scripts, brushes, or patterns that you want to be included with next gimphoto version?

  17. What about scripts that could make planets.

  18. notwritten07,
    Thank's for your suggestions, i will consider it.

  19. guys what happen now to the original Gimp like
    the latest version?
    I'm already confuse, They are so many name
    version now in Gimp like Gimpshop which is
    updated too but the original gimp is still
    updated too..
    I wonder which is good to use.
    This Gimpphoto or the original gimp.
    They are not having a competition are they?

  20. Anonymous,
    sorry for much confusions.

    if you like original GIMP then you better go to http://www.gimp.org.

    just like Linux that has many different distro such as Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSuse, Mandriva, Slackware, etc. Each is tweak toward specific user needs, there is no competition, they are complements each other (even Linus, Linux creator DIDN'T want Linux to be only a single distro, he said more distro is better).

    GimPhoto is created to help users that already using Photoshop at work or at school but can't afford to buy it to be able using it at home. So rather they do piracy for Photoshop then it's better if they use modified GIMP.

    but for new users that never using other image editing software then it's better to use the original GIMP (http://www.gimp.org).

  21. Gimphoto & Gimpad download link doesnt show anything in Google Chrome browser, so I had to open the download page in an alternative browser (Opera, FF).

  22. This is incredible. I am so happy that I found this app. Excellent work. Could you please start a list of compatible Photoshop plugins that will work with this version of GimPhoto?

    Also, is development still active? Will 2.6 be ported anytime soon?

  23. Anonymous,
    it's weird because i also use Chrome browser and i can see GimPhoto and GimPad download link.

  24. Anonymous,
    Thank's for your kind word :)
    Many Photoshop plugins is compatible with GimPhoto using PSPI, but it only for plugin with .8bf extension. The only error i found is on preview window that used by plugin, maybe it will be fix in the next version of PSPI.

    I still actively develop it but daily work and life gives me little free time to working on it.

    for more info about GimPhoto based on GIMP 2.6, read:

  25. Hello, very good job. 2 questions:
    1. where are the liquify filter?
    2. this version run in linux and windows, the same?

  26. Daniel,
    Thanks for your kind words :)

    1. GIMP don't have Liquify filter, the similar plugin is called IWarp.
    Access it from Menu > Filters > IWarp

    2. GimPhoto for Linux and Windows is based on same source, all functions is the same but only normal map filter and PSPI (support for Photoshop 8bf plugin) that not available under Linux version.

  27. are the key-commands the same as in Photoshop?

    This is most important for me, cause I use a lot the keyboard commands in photoshop, which do crazy things when I press the same in normal GIMP. Like ctrl+D does not deselect (Photoshop), but duplicate the image (gimp).

    is this changed, too?

  28. Anonymous,
    yes, the shortcuts also changed to use similar keys like Photoshop, for complete lists of keys that used, check this link:

  29. oo Thank You sooooo much for your work!
    Hope you stick around! :D


  30. Scrizz,
    i'm glad you like it :)

  31. Which is better? (as in easier to use?)Gimp or Gimpshop. I already have Gimp but I don't think I really understand the icons and such. I don't use photoshop much but I think I understand that better because I've been using a site called Aviary which is pretty good but my internet is slow which makes it bothersome. Also, does Gimp/Gimpshop have the eraser tool? The one which erases to make it transparent? I think I like it better when you can start with a canvas which is transparent but I don't know how to do that. Also, which app runs smoother? Gimp or Gimpshop? my computer (windows XP) jams easily and I hate it for that but I can't do anything about it.

  32. Pauline,
    maybe you can try GimPhoto :) GimPhoto is using newer version of GIMP than Gimpshop (GimPhoto and Gimpshop is different program).

    GimPhoto have eraser tool to make transparent background.

    GimPhoto runs very smooth on Windows XP even when using older hardware because it have lower hardware requirements than GIMP or Gimpshop.

  33. What is the tool for magnetic lasso in photoshop??

  34. Anonymous,
    the closest one is Scissors Select Tool.

  35. Hi,

    I tried looking for an answer but could not find anything solid, via google or on here. Is Gimp Windows 7 compatible?


  36. Anonymous,
    Yes, GimPhoto is compatible with Windows 7.

  37. Hi,

    is there any chance for update? :)

  38. Rosalek,
    i now working on Gimphoto for Mac using GIMP 2.6.8, after Mac release then i will continue it with Windows and Linux release :)

  39. thank you great work.

  40. I am use to a PhotoshopElements command of Control+G (to group one layer to another) and then I would use Control E to merged the grouped layers. What would the correct commands be in Gimphoto please. BIG THANKS (love Gimphoto...lot easier than GIMP).


  41. Leslie,
    i'm sorry but Gimphoto still based on GIMP 2.4 that not have Layer Group function.

    maybe we still need to wait until next version GIMP 2.8 release that support Layer Group function.

  42. is it supports pen tablet

  43. Anonymous,
    sorry, i don't know because i don't have tablet.

  44. looks promising. will give it a try

  45. Can you re-focus your picture once you zoom in so it doesn't look so pixelated?

  46. jgrootonk,
    for better picture zoom resize, try this:
    - for web app online image resize
    - for dekstop app image resize

  47. Mas, itu keyboard shortcut nya ikut photoshop ato ikut gimp? Soalnya udah kebiasaan sama photoshop nih...

  48. wow, it's really uptodate i see xD

  49. Anonymous,
    Gimphoto keyboard shortcuts follow Photoshop standards :)

  50. I have met lot of photoshop users..and no way they are going to convert to Gimp...they would rather used pirate version of it..
    all i am saying..make it look great for Origonal gimp users who love the software..why not be there some solid GUI changes and better icons ..better branding overalll for the GImp....

  51. Great work and love the new GimPhoto!

    The only thing I miss is a facebook share on this page so that I could give you a LIKE ;)

  52. Might already be a feature: but is there a "healing brush" tool (where another part of the image may be used as the source for a brush - very helpful for editing out objects).

  53. KurtyKool,
    there is healing brush like tool at Gimphoto, klik yellow patch icon at ToolBox, or follow this video tutorial :)

  54. Akhirnya ada juga developers yang bikin gimp menjadi mirip dgn PS. Made In Indonesia pula.

  55. Hello everybody. Just a question : Where can you change the language?

    but if you really want to change the language then maybe this link can help you :)
