  • GimpVS -the Gimp on Visual Studio

    i've spent a little time on lately and i ran across this one: . thought some of you (lkroll) might be interested.

    i downloaded it and tried it out briefly. i was impressed by how full-featured the Gimp has gotten to be. and, i was also impressed by the number of filters and plugins that came with it. it would seem the Gimp is coming of age and has gone well past being 'that software you get because you cant afford something else' Corel beware! Adobe, you might want to think about a price drop!

    Re: GimpVS -the Gimp on Visual Studio

    I've seen this one already (regularly visit Sourceforge by the way), but couldn't figure out what advantage it would me for me to download/install it. What does this version of GIMP do that I couldn't do by just downloading filters/scripts? How does it integrate with Visual Studio as far as use of filters and such? Just don't really believe I it would be much better then just sticking with the GIMP as is, but I can be persuaded of you show me what you believe is a key benifit.

      hi lyle,

      in all honesty, i dont know. the last time i had gimp on my machine was quite a while back, so my report on gimpvs wouldnt be a fair comparison of the gimp you're using. actually, i briefly tried gimpshop when it first came out, but not enough to really know the nuts and bolts of it. so, there's really no way i can advise you, having nothing to really compare it to.

      i shld have known you'd already be aware of it so, you can probably tell more from the various stuff said on sourceforge than anything i could tell you about it.

      as for integrating with visual studio, i'm not sure. my impression was that it was made, at least in part, FROM visual studio. how much or what, i dont really know. it did run smoothly and cleanly and i was impressed by how full-featured it was. whether that is now true of all gimp versions or not, i dont really know. i played around with it for a bit and still have it installed. things were pretty easy to find and alter, though there were a couple things i didnt like, like the clone tool. psp's clone is much easier to use, for example. and i found the lack of having the mousewheel as my zoom in and out quite annoying (i do a LOT of zooming, particularly when restoring images).

      so, for the most part, even though i somewhat directed this at you, our resident gimp expert, i was mostly just posting to let those that might be interested in knowing there was a new gimp out there and that it looked pretty good.

      in fact, YOU'D be the better person to do a comparitive review of the various versions of the gimp, gimpshop and gimpvs, don' cha think?

        Might as well be me to break the news on this forum. lol

        Still waiting until Sunday for the tryout dogs to fetch out the additional bugs that weren't caught with the RC releases. Hopfully the Script-fu compatibility issues will be nipped in the bud with the final release (yes, some...

        GIMP 2.10.0 is now released.
        by lkroll
        Literally years in the making. Below's my assessment that I posted elsewhere already.

        OK; am using samj's portable version(s) which allows me to keep 2.8.22 intact. GIMP 2.10.00 no longer supports Mathmap period (either 32-bit or 64-bit). PSPI still works but only in 32-bit version of GIMP....

        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...

        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...
