The user interface of this site is designed by a dedicated design and usability team. This team was formed after the developers of this software signed up to join the OpenUsability project. A user interface brainstorming group has since been created for this application , where users of GIMP can send in their suggestions as to how they think the GIMP user interface could be improved.
GIMP is presented in two forms, single and multiple window mode; the verson 2.8 defaults to the multiple window mode. In multiple window mode a set of windows contain all of this software functionality. By default, tools and tool settings are on the left and other dialogues are on the right.
GTK+ (GIMP tool kit) is used to create the graphical user interface. GTK+’s creation and history regarding GIMP is described in the history section above.
GIMP’s fitness for use in professional environments is regularly reviewed and as such often cited as a possible replacement for Adobe Photoshop. The maintainers seek to fulfill GIMP’s product vision rather than replicate the interface of Adobe Photoshop.
