A free “version” of Adobe Photoshop?

Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard for photo processing, and also for much of the fantasy art and cartooning industry. Stupid and Insane and a few of my fantasy paintings were done in Photoshop – not with watercolor and inks. For example:

The GIMP is a freely distributed piece of software for things like photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It looks kind of like this, and is similar to Photoshop:

The GIMP has a bit of a learning curve. While it is similar to Adobe Photoshop, it’s isn’t exactly the same. However, GIMPshop changed all that. GIMPshop is a modification of The GIMP to replicate Adobe Photoshop’s look and feel.

GIMPshop does not support Photoshop plugins but all GIMP’s own plugins, filters, brushes, etc. remain available. This isn’t a huge deal in my opinion – I don’t think I have ever used a Photoshop plugin to make any of my art.

Many Photoshop tutorials can be followed verbatim, and most others can be easily adapted for GIMPshop users.

So now you have no excuse not to be able to use my art tutorials. :)

    I was wondering if GIMPshop can handle all of the things that The Gimp can do?
