Re: [Gimp-user] What happened to Gimp?

Hi Belleo,

do you remember which version of GIMP you used on the previous systems you had?
The latest stable GIMP has been in version 2.8.x since 2.8.0 was released around
- three years ago (see ), and
not too much changed in the UI there.

Hi everyone,

Sorry if this is a rant. I've been on the brink of pulling all my hairs out
over the last couple weeks.

So I've been a heavy gimp user for years. And I have developed some amazing
graphics with this software. Loved it, preached about it and swore by it.

However, I recently purchased the latest Macbook Pro, OS Yosemite, and I feel
like my design world has been shattered.

The interface of the latest GIMP installed has been anything but pleasant. It
looks and functions very clunky. Everything seems so much more complicated.
For example, adding text has become a pain. There is a static box that hovers
over the text as you type and it is so annoying. It is painfully difficult to
move the text box around to your desired location, right now I have to drag
the edges out to move the text box.

To top all of this off, all my exported images come out blurry and distorted.
Is there a way I can get my old gimp back??? My livelihood depends on me
creating beautiful graphics and I am not ready to fork over thousands of
dollars for Adobe.
