For those who don’t already know, the Gimp is a powerful, open source image editing application. For more info on the Gimp visit gimp.org. GIMPshop is essentially the same program with some cosmetic changes.

The Gimp’s menu structure and naming conventions had been a constant source of frustration for me because I was so used to Photoshop. If you’ve never used Photoshop before, you may not appreciate the GIMPshop hack. GIMP’s tools, options, windows, and menus  have been renamed and reorganized to closely resemble Adobe Photoshop’s menu structure and naming conventions. Many of the menu options and even whole menus were recreated to faithfully reproduce a Photoshop-like experience. After running the GIMPshop hack, you’ll find that Photoshop and the GIMP are strikingly similar.
