GIMPshop Review

Felix Cheng

A free, copy-left graphics editor based on GIMP

A review of GIMPshop by Felix Cheng

GIMPShop is a simplifed installation package which installs the required packages in order to run GIMP on Windows. Apart from offering a separate installation package, GIMPShop does not offer any extra features which cannot be obtained by downloading the official GIMP packages (which are also available on this site).

You should note that the installation package being offered by the distributors of GIMPShop may contain unwanted toolbars and advertisements which are not normally included in the original package available from the open source community or from that offered on Sourceforge.

In all, GIMP is a very powerful image editing suite which offers many of the tools available from Adobe Photoshop.

GIMPshop can add text to an image, apply special effects to a picture, view EXIF data, create animated GIFs, create PNG graphics and create web graphics.

GIMPshop features and highlights:
  • Photo restoration tools
  • Advanced graphics editing software
  • Digital image retouching
  • Custom channel mixer
  • Cage transform tool
  • Import and export multiple different image formats
  • Single-window workspace option
  • Smooth antialiased graphics
  • New widgets for tablet users

GIMPshop is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from graphics editors without restrictions. GIMPshop 2.8.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware). Though marketed as 'freeware', GIMPshop actually includes adware or something which resembles adware like toolbars or browser modifications.
