Is it possible to make Gimp look more like Photoshop?
If so, How can I do this?

  • You can make it look more like Photoshop, butwork is really too much. Gimp isn't Photoshop. If the looks will suffice, I'll press the button and post. – Jacob Vlijm Jul 7 '16 at 7:14
  • jacob-vlijm ok. – Happy Jul 7 '16 at 7:18
  • yeah I found it too, before I found the one below. It didn't seem very useful to me. – Jacob Vlijm Jul 7 '16 at 10:18
  • And does the Gimp work like Photoshop after doing this ? – Happy Jul 7 '16 at 12:24
  • Thank you, I want to Wordpress theme with gimp, do you think it is possible ? – Happy Jul 7 '16 at 12:26

Although I wouldn't do it (Gimp is Gimp and Photoshop is Photoshop), looking around I found this:

...which actually did the job quite nicely imo.

How to apply

  1. Download the zip file from here (press the green button "Clone or download")
  2. Unzip the downloaded folder, make a backup of ~/.gimp-2.8 (~ stands for your home folder, ~/.gimp-2.8 is a hidden folder by default, press Ctrl+H in nautilus to make it visible).
  3. Remove "themes" from the original ~/.gimp-2.8 folder and drag the content of the unzipped folder into the original ~/.gimp-2.8 folder.

Done, now on restarting Gimp, it will look like above. To undo, simply restore the backup of the ~/.gimp-2.8 folder.
