GIMPshop Comments

Website fixed

Positive Comment by HackedChicken
about GIMPshop Mar 2015

Just so anyone reading the comments knows: the website for GIMPshop has been fixed. It now points you to a Sourceforge repository, where the real GIMPshop can be found, complete with GPL-licensed source code.

gimpshop.com is a scam at the expensive of the legit gimpshop developer (gimp hacker)

gimpshop.com is owned by a greedy domain squatter and NOT the developer. Please have everyone you know update their bookmarks.

GIMPshop IS NOT OPEN SOURCE

Negative Comment by congruent
about GIMPshop Mar 2013

Bundles adware and does not make the source code available. Also, the guy that runs gimpshop.com is a deceitful little scoundrel that steals to make a quick buck. I edited this entry to reflect that this software includes adware and is NOT open source. Hopefully the changes get made. Also, whoever is linking to Scott's Twitter and (now defunct) personal website need to stop doing that as Scott wants nothing more to do with GIMPshop.

Makes following tutorials in the GIMP documentation impossible since it changes around the UI. Can't follow Photoshop tutorials, though, still too different.
The website is also REALLY spammy.

about GIMPshop Jun 2011

I could work on Vista business 64 bit only briefly stable with GimpShop. GimpShop crashed after a few minutes. Moreover, I miss rectangles or circles for insertion in a loaded picture. I think, one must still wait, until this promising application becomes more mature. I have not found a German-speaking user interface like with GIMP. Available plugins (e.g. for tools as rectangles oder german interface) cannot be found easyly from inside the application or in the web. It is not clear, which GIMP plugin you can use with GIMPshop.

Gimpshop is distributed under the GNU GPL license, so it's not free as beer, but free speech. So I gues you should mark it as "Open source".
Thanks
