Some time ago I showed you how give GIMP the appearance of Photoshop CS6However, the disadvantage of that method is that it put the window of GIMP dark in color. This type of adjustment or tweaks, are convenient to help in the migration and adaptation of the users of Photoshop to tools Open Source.
Via Webupd8 I find out about another way to do it, this time, with light colors; And not only that, but now we can use the keyboard shortcuts as in Photoshop and the side panels are placed in a similar way to the Adobe tool. This is the result in my KDE:
El hack comes from the hand of +martin owens and it is very easy to apply it because what we have to do practically replace the GIMP configuration folder with a new one.
Give GIMP the look of Photoshop
What we must do is access the page of Martin Owens on Deviantart and download the following file (which I leave in its direct link).
Once downloaded we proceed to make a backup of our GIMP configuration folder in our / home.
$ mv ~/.gimp-2.8 ~/.gimp-2.8-old
Anyway, if we want to do it with a version higher than 2.8, what we have to do is:
$ mv ~/.config/GIMP/2.9 ~/.config/GIMP/2.9-old
Now we unzip the downloaded file in our / home, since it has a folder called .GIMP-2.8 and that's it.
$ mv ~/.gimp-2.8 ~/.config/GIMP/2.9
The result is really amazing.
Revert the changes
To go back we only have to restore the folders that we backed up:
rm -r ~ / .gimp-2.8 mv ~ / .gimp-2.8-old ~ / .gimp-2.8
For GIMP 2.9+:
rm -r ~ / .config / GIMP / 2.9 mv ~ / .config / GIMP / 2.9-old ~ / .config / GIMP / 2.9
And that's it. Remember that the keyboard shortcuts can change as well as some options and others.
