I’ve been using the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) application for some years. I never really liked Photoshop and paying $500 for terrible program was not a good idea in my opinion. GIMP is great for editing photos and works on PC’s running Linux, Macintosh or Windows. However, it had one MAJOR design flaw. It was only available in a very cumbersome Multiple Window Mode. In other words, all the dialogs and tools were disconnected from the main image. There was no option to group them all together.
Well, this is finally a non-issue. GIMP 2.8 has been due for some time. It promised a Single Window Mode but we’ve been waiting for years. A build of 2.8 is now available for download. I’ve tried it out and am very happy to see it functioning as I’d expect. You can grab a copy here for use while you wait for the official build.
