What is the difference between Gimphoto and GimpShop other than the name?

donec,
Gimpshop is based on old GIMP 2.2 with standard plugins, no additional plugins and afaik no further development since first release.
GimPhoto is based on new GIMP 2.4 and packed with more than 20 additional plugins, still actively developed and already done 3 time release (under Windows) and this version is the first release for Linux.

Ok what is the difference between GimPhoto for Linux users compared to GIMP? When GimpShop came out it successfully answered a difficulty Windows users had with the use of multiple windows for one program. This did not work for Linux so effectively there was no difference to GIMP.

Hmmm...

Having some of those PS plugins would be handy, I especially like the idea of having the Save for web function. That was downright handy...

I'll check it out. Thanks for the tip!

Yes I do!
I rely a lot on http://registry.gimp.org/list_content - for useful plugins, as well as DeviantArt.
Photoshop brushes and filters work fine in Gimp by default as well, so I don't see the need for this, sorry... :|

What you could do is to team up with Pavel Kanzelsberger who has made Pixel and make that a stable photoshop clone for those who wants that, me - I'm happy with the Gimp!
Pixel's tag line is: "RGB, CMYK and HDR image editing and photo retouching for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and others."
And he goes on: "Pixel is a RGB, CMYK and HDR image editing, photo retouching, graphics manipulating and animation program available for many operating systems formerly known as Pixel32. It is available for Windows, Linux, Linspire, MacOSX, BeOS, Zeta, QNX, MorphOS, FreeBSD, eComStation, OS/2, SkyOS and even old plain DOS, for both x86 and PowerPC architectures."

zwopper,
i'm really sorry to think you as GIMP new user but it's look like you are GIMP power user with IT expert background... (^__^)=b YOU rocks!
so i think GimPhoto not really useful for you, even i think you already be able to use PS plugins using Wine.

GimPhoto is developed for GIMP new comer from Photoshop world that usually an artist or designer without IT expert background, they need to use the GIMP useful out-of-the-box without search, compile and install plugins by themself.

Many GIMP useful plugins not included in GIMP such as: CMYK Separation, Save for Web, Batch Process, Layer Effects, etc (last time i check gimp plugins repo is missing from many plugins, i don't know why, maybe because they redesign the site) and this need more time and ability to deal with system (usually new user confuse about access folder that need as root or with gimp user preferences hidden folder).

Even many GIMP new user had difficulties to install new brushes because there is no Brush Manager, difficult to install new plugins because no Plugin Manager, new gradient, new pallete, etc.

Why i don't work with Pixel:
- it's paid software, not free software.
- it's developed using FreePascal that never as fast as C based program like GIMP also last time i check it's buggy.

i just to help others to easier to use GIMP if this insult you then i'm really sorry.
i not intended to do it and i'm sorry for my limited english if there is a bad or harsh words maybe this because english is not my mother language not what i meant about it.
