  • Photoshop and gimp

    Can Photoshop and gimp exist on the hardrive with out problems?
    My sister wants to learn Photoshop but does not have the funds for the program. So I thought I would check it out for her, but not if it will cause problems with my CS3 extended.

    And what is Gimpshop, is it the same as Gimp?

    Re: Photoshop and gimp

    hi,
    my opinion there should be no problem with the two on the same computer... I have about three paint programs including ps cs.. and they don't cause any problems...

    gimp and gimpshop the same.. the only major difference is that gimpshop has the looks and feel of photoshop... ie: the naming of the tools and features very similar... this does make it easier to use the various photoshop tutorials... with gimpshop..

      Yes they can. I use mainly GIMP but also CS2. I'm just more savvy with GIMP, and it does take a lot less resources. I just received my Christmas Present though (brother got me a barebones with a good NVidia card and 2GBytes of RAM, so I have to get the OS installed on this baby and then maybe will give CS2 more time, but still GIMP is extremely powerful and more then meets my needs for things that I like to do {in conjunction with Irfanview for those Photoshop compatible filters that don't work right in the GIMP}).

        Thanks for the information. I will give it a try and then I can get my sister started with the basics from there.

          What's also nice about GIMP is that it supports layered files, and your layered work can be sent between Photoshop and GIMP. ie, if you're a student and use PS at school and GIMP at home, you can remain productive at all times.

          Of course you may run into some compatibility issues with unique CS3 layer options, but I need to check that again.

            Gimp/Gimpshop Anyone?
            by Allie3513
            Just wondering if anyone uses here gimp or gimpshop, and if it can be used for glitz pageant retouching purposes as well. I have yet to find any tutorials for these programs here. (Although I have found the photoshop ones that might work) Just trying to decide if I should purchase a photoshop program...

            GimpShop ... The Gimp gone Photoshop
            by Craig Walters
            i was recently watching tech tv's 'The Screensavers' (now called Attack of the Show). this was a week or two ago. they had a short release and review of a conversion of 'The Gimp' into this new thing called Gimpshop. the hack basically takes the Gimp's interface and changes it into something more resembling...

            Krita?
            by ksnid1884
            Hi Everyone. I realize that most of the threads in this forum discuss photoshop but I am wondering if anyone is using Krita? I'm using Gimp but read that Krita has a layer adjustment filter that gimp currently does not have. Can anyone give me their opinion of Krita? Is the program worth downloading...
