Found in this article on Libre Graphics: Gimp devs have been working to provide a native Mac version of Gimp 2.8.

Scratch that - they HAVE a Mac version, that does not require X11. Gimp/Downloads

GIMP 2.6 on Mac OS X seems to be unable to open photos taken on a Nokia N900. When I try to open one (e.g. this one [1.3MB download]), GIMP hangs and a ufraw-gimp process starts consuming all my CPU until I kill it. This isn't just me being impatient — I let it sit there for over five minutes and it never managed to open it.

Has anyone else seen anything like this?

When I saw this cheat sheet for Photoshop keyboard shortcuts a few weeks ago, I thought it would be neat if we'd have something similar for The GIMP. The closest thing is probably the hotkey list over at gimpusers.com, but it's just that - a list (one that came in very handy when I made this cheat sheet, I might add ^^)

The cheat sheet is vector-based so that you can re-size it without any quality loss. This means no GIMP was used for the GIMP cheat sheet ;) Or any other (vector) graphic software. I used LaTeX and TikZ to create it.Good to know )

I hope you find it useful, and all feedback - even what doesn't work for you - is very much appreciated!

Hello! I want to make myself an icon along the lines of the pretty-coloured text ones that [personal profile] blnchflr did a tutorial for, but I've run across a small problem.

I'm using GIMP 2.6.7 on OS X 10.6.2, and I cannot get the text tool to let me type in pinyin, nor can I get it to admit that I have Chinese fonts installed. Has anyone here got any experience in making this work?

Edited to add: Sorted thanks to [personal profile] ewx and [personal profile] dragonwolf (see comments).
