Best Free Photo and Image Editor

  • GIMPHOTO is FREE OPEN SOURCE

  • GIMPHOTO is STABLE and SOLID

  • GIMPHOTO is PHOTO EDITOR

 

Sorry for long time without news about Gimphoto :)
I've been busy with Gimphoto 1.4.3, next version Gimphoto based on GIMP 2.4.3.
may be you complaint about why it takes so long to create the next version of Gimphoto :)

I try to explained it, next version of Gimphoto is based on modified and recompile the Gimp 2.4.3 source code, so for now Gimphoto can be called as GIMP "fork".
This method is different from old method that done with modifying binary files using HEX Editor, the new method is longer but Gimphoto will benefit from modified source code, because for next version Gimphoto can also be compiled for Linux and MacOSX.

The next version of Gimphoto will also bring new better menu layout, new great themes, big icon toolbox, new menu for Photography tool and filters, and also packed with many great filters.

And the last great addition to Gimphoto is GIMPHOTO DESKTOP.
This is a program that i specially develop to bring Gimphoto to the next level, may be you curious about what is Gimphoto Desktop.

Gimphoto Desktop is external application that can modify Gimphoto interface become single integrated user interface so Gimphoto will appear as MDI (Multiple Document Interface) ala Photoshop. This is the most complaint about Gimphoto user interface from regular Windows users.

Using Gimphoto Desktop will improve so much about Gimphoto user interface experience, but Gimphoto Desktop is totally separated from Gimphoto program so if you already like Gimphoto scattered interface then okay, you can just ignore Gimphoto Desktop and only install Gimphoto as usual.

Gimphoto Desktop development takes very long time that because my C programming is so rusty :p hehehe... (it's been about 10 years since last time i programming with C under DOS)
beside that Gimphoto Desktop is external program that try to intercept each Gimphoto action so this make things more complicated, i must check everything is safe and running well with Gimphoto and Windows, if not then Gimphoto Desktop will screwed Gimphoto or Windows.

Gimphoto Desktop will using separate installer, different installer from Gimphoto.
Gimphoto Desktop Installer will also include with PSPI (Photoshop Filter Interface for Gimp) and a couple free Photoshop Filter.

so stay tune, next version will be release around February 2008... (^__^)=b

  1. Awesome news. Btw, GIMP 2.4.4 already came out ;) Maybe it make sense to release Gimphoto 1.4.4 (in the manner GIMP team marks their builds) based on old method so we can enjoy bug fixes and new features, while you working on Gimphoto Desktop and such?

    i try on windows xp
    i already had gimp 2.4 installed i didn't unistall it.

    But Gimphoto abort when loading script fu

    I guess is that share the same user folder and so may be conflict for duplicate plugin script or files stored there,..anyway is a blind guess only think i know for sure is that abortloading script.

    A similar possibility may be the python plugins i have in my user plugin folder, gimphoto can't use python maybe is there the issue?

    I try to remove all scm files but that didn't change.

  5. I figure out a very easy workaround to have both installed ...was so simple that i almost overlook it

    Here is how go

    1 install gimp (or gimphoto what is first is not relevant) as usual
    2 now CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT..( may be even a bogus account as with no PW ) log in there in new account and install GimPhoto there...during the install look the option that sound something as
    "Who may used this program " there are 2 chose, the DEFAULT "shared with other account " is the right one (yhe other "only you" is the wrong option )

    That should solve any possibile problem, Gimphoto will be available for all users , no need to login with another account, but will get his own folders.

    I think you should post with evidence this tip, since i notice that many installed both GimPhoto and gimp, and in the same account

  8. Dark Haired Girl,
    sorry but i don't have MacOS X and never develop using it.

    GimPhoto already release its source then maybe somebody with ability to compile GIMP under Mac and also create installer for Mac will be able to create GimPhoto for MacOS X.

  9. Just tried to install it. Got: 'gimphoto can't start because libgimpui-2.0.dll is missing.' This is certainly something I don't need.
