Life with GIMP 2.7

Filed under
GIMP

A full "yum update" brought me GIMP 2.7.1, which I consciously downgraded from many months ago. I have work to do: edit photos, not install/uninstall and downgrade apps again, so here are the first things I did trying to make GIMP 2.7 bearable:

* change the "Export..." from Ctrl+Shift+E to Ctrl+S: I edit JPEGs and want to save JPEGs, not create from scratch to need XCFs (2.7 allow you to "Save" only in XCF, everything else is supposed to be exported);

* changed the shortcut for "Fit Image to Window" from Ctrl+Shift+J back to Ctrl+Shift+E (as it used to be in 2.6): with image surgery you need to zoom a lot, and do that only one handed, the other hand holds the mouse;

rest here
