GIMP CC Theme
[ Backported from GIMP 2.9.2 themes for use with GIMP 2.8.18 and above. Will no longer be supported after this release. ]
Collection of three themes i created to give GIMP 2.8.x a similar look and feel as you'd find in Photoshop.
Copy the theme folders to the locations here depending on your OS :
Mac OS X:
~/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/themes or
- (You may have to unhide the Library folder first)
/home/<your user name>/.gimp-2.8/themes
- The PS style icons i believe are from Martin Owens (at http://gimpstuff.org/content/show.php/Toolbox+Icons+like+Photoshop?content=159292) though i got theme through another theme.
- To have similar keyboard shortcuts copy the ps_menurc to your personal .gimp-2-8 folder and rename it to menurc (original available at http://epierce.freeshell.org/gimp/gimp_ps.php).
- Lifehacker has a nice article on making GIMP closer to Photoshop http://lifehacker.com/how-to-make-the-gimp-work-more-like-photoshop-1551318983 .
- Make the toolbar icons smaller by add the line after the colon to the beginning of the gtkrc file for the desired theme : gtk-icon-sizes = "gtk-small-toolbar=16,16:gtk-large-toolbar=16,16"
