    I myself actually prefer macromedia Fireworks which can be gotten for 1/2 the price of photoshop. Once in a while I'll use imageready if I just need to take care of something quickly. I'd use photoshop but my 30 day trial expired

    To each his own. I personally prefer photoshop. but when your on a linux box you have to learn to adjust.

    Besides, there are some here who can't afford PS or Fireworks for that matter and I'm just giving them another option if they can't. I sure know I coudln't afford Photoshop when I was 15...even if I could have gotten it at half price.

    Have you tried setting your computer clock back? Cheap, yes, but usually effective as well.

    it still said the same thing, but could gimpshop be the same as gimp 2.0?

    GIMP and GIMPshop are the same program under the hood. They use the same source code and both are based on the 2.x code. The diffrence is in the menu system.

    GIMPshop is a modified verison of GIMP. The menus have been changed to mirror photoshop's menus and naming conventions where needed. The origonal creator of GIMPshop said he did it to help GIMP users who were used to Photoshop adjust to the new program. I know it's helped me emensley.

    Give it a shot...it's not a bad program. Stop comparing it to Photoshop (becuase it's not) and try it for it's own editing prowess. It's a nice program and a great alternitive for those that don't have photoshop and don't want to steal it.

    I can give you screen shots of GIMP (which looks the same for the most part). IF you want to see the diffrences between GIMP and GIMPshop you'll need to go to www.gimpshop.net and look at their comparative shots of the menus. Other then the menus GIMP and GIMPshop look exactly the same.
