GIMP Addons & Hacks

This is a modification of the GIMP software package,to give GIMP the look and feel of the Adobe Photoshop package. As the GIMP-Shop's interface replicates Photoshop, many of the tutorials that are written for Photoshop can be used on GIMP-Shop!

So, how to install?
Download the .DEB file from Here.
Once it has downloaded, use the following command to install:
sudo dpkg -i gimpshop_2.2.11-1_i386.deb

Now GIMP will be ready to use. When you first start GIMP up after the GIMP-Shop installation, you will be prompted with a new window, and follow the simple instructions to begin :)

Run GIMP In One Window[Thanks to for this]
sudo apt-get install xnest xfwm4

Then run this command to try it out:
Xnest :1 -ac -name GIMP -geometry 1024x690 & xfwm4 --display :1 & gimp --display :1

So Here's how to make a shortcut for it:

1: Paste the following into a new file:
Xnest :1 -ac -name GIMP -geometry 1024×690 & xfwm4 –display :1 & gimp –display :1

2: Save it as /usr/bin/gimp1window
3: run
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/gimp1window
on the file
4: Edit the shortcut for GIMP to gimp1window

If you have any other GIMP hacks or addons, please leave them in a comment, and I'll gladly add them :)
