The GIMP: The GNU Image Manipulation Program ============================================ This is the development branch of The GIMP. Here's where new features are being added. Somewhen this summer the next stable GIMP release, GIMP 2.2, will emerge out of this. If you want to hack on The GIMP, please read the file HACKING. For detailed installation instructions, see the file INSTALL. 1. Web Resources ================ The GIMP's home page is at: http://www.gimp.org/ Please be sure to visit this site for information, documentation, tutorials, news, etc. All things GIMP-ish are available from there. The automated plug-in registry is located at: http://registry.gimp.org/ There you can get the latest versions of plug-ins using a convenient forms-based interface. The latest version of The GIMP can be found at: http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ 2. Mailing Lists ================ We have several mailing lists dedicated to GIMP user and development discussion. There is more info at https://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/<listname> substituting <listname> for "gimp-announce", "gimp-user", "gimp-win-users" or "gimp-developer" (without the quotes, of course) depending on the list you want to subscribe to. Links to the mailing list archives can be found at the same addresses as given above. Gimp-announce is a low-traffic list with announcements about new releases of GIMP and plug-ins. Gimp-user is a mailing list dedicated to user problems, hints and tips, discussion of cool effects, etc. Gimp-developer is oriented to GIMP core and plug-in developers. Most people will only want to be subscribed to gimp-user. If you want to help develop The GIMP, the gimp-developer mailing list is a good starting point. There is also a mailing list dedicated to users of the Win32 port "gimpwin-users". To subscribe, send an empty message to firstname.lastname@example.org You can also use the web interface at http://www.egroups.com/group/gimpwin-users/. Note that as this mailing list is hosted on egroups.com; the messages from the list contain relatively unintrusive and easily ignored advertisements at the end. But if you are absolutely allergic to ads, don't subscribe. 3. IRC ====== And finally, for the real junkies, there is an IRC channel devoted to the GIMP. On Byxnet (a private mostly-GIMP network) there is #gimp. Many of the developers hang out there. One of the Byxnet servers are: irc.gimp.org:6667 4. Customizing ============== The look of GIMP's interface can be customized like any other GTK app by editing the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file or by using "themes" (ready-made customizations). For downloadable themes and further details, see http://gtk.themes.org. Additionally GIMP reads ~/.gimp-2.0/gtkrc so you can have settings that only apply to The GIMP. Included is a set of keybindings similar to those in Adobe Photoshop. You can find them in the ps-menurc file. To use them, copy this file to ~/.gimp-2.0/menurc. You can also manually change the keybindings to any of your choice by editing ~/.gimp-2.0/menurc.
