GIMP 2.8 and its (huge) improvements to the User Interface!

Filed under
GIMP

Finally confirmed: single window mode is coming for 2.8! But thats not the whole story yet Wink The plan for 2.8 also includes lots of other cool new usability and interaction features!

Peter Sikking, interface and interaction artist for the GIMP, makes lots of questioned things clear in his latest Blog post about new features that are ready to be implemented to GIMPs UI.

Some comments in the mailing list discussion and on our news about it have been negative on the single window announcement.

First of all: Single Window Mode will come for 2.8. It will be mainly developed by Martin Nordholts (aka Enselic in the GIMP community).

Second: You won't be forced to use it, if you don't like single window! You will just be able to switch it off in the appropriate menu entry! And the best thing for these users - you will still come into benefit of most other cool new features (see list below).

It is also planned to have more cool features in the next version of GIMP ( 2.8 ) already:

i hope this is an option, but it looks very nice.

re: gimp

Yes, it is an option. If you want to use the old windowed way, it's a switch in the menu.

Thanks for the information.

Thanks for the information.

re: gimp

Here's an idea. GROW UP ALREADY. Get a name that states what you do and isn't offense and/or stupid.

re: gimp

wow what a great idea, and when I dont have a name that is offensive or stupid to people, ill find people that have offensive or stupid names and criticise them and not even answer or suggest something related to the topic of the post. Your a douche. I think you have a lot of growing up to do.

re: gimp

I'll go pee on Trippy VonSkippy's leg for ya. Tongue
