Linux version of photoshop?
« on: April 01, 2014, 12:47:19 pm »
Hey  guys what's the Linux version of photoshop?
In a world without fences and walls, who needs Gates and Windows?

Using two computers- Peppermint on old HP laptop and Mint on new Dell netbook.

GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Programme)

Should be in your repo's

If you're running an Ubuntu/Debian based distro, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gimp gimp-gmic gimp-plugin-registry

Oh it's GIMP, ok, got that- I have little idea how to use GIMP- is there a sort of manual somewhere online for it?
