I posted this to the gimp mailing list but the list seems to have a v. low
activity and few postings. There is no reply so far. So hopefully there is
someone here who can point me in the right direction.
I have installed ports/gimpshop on Freebsd 6.1. I want to compare
its functionality with photoshop with which I am extremely familar and use
extensively on my Win XP system.
I have started gimp and have two newbie questions.
1. How do I get to start gimpshop? The docs seem to have detailed
documentation but although I have searched <much head scratching> -- I seem
unable to find anything that tells me how to get the gimpshop interface
2. I found that gimp will itself will open *.jpg but does not open raw files -
In my case in need to be able to open canon raw files *.cr2 and would also
like to be able to open photoshop *.psd files.
Here is a list of the relevant gimp packages installed and OS version info:
# pkg_info |grep gimp
gimp-2.2.15,2 The "meta-port" for The Gimp
gimp-help-0.12 GIMP user's manual
gimp-print-4.2.7_3 GIMP Print Printer Driver
gimpshop-2.2.11_5 GIMP fork resembling Adobe Photoshop
# uname -a
FreeBSD --- 6.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE #0: Sun May 7 04:15:57 UTC 2006

Thanks in advance
