Speaking as an illustrator, I have kept an eye on Gimp for some time and have been mightily impressed with the progress made. Unfortunately, the one tool I really want is a macro/actions recorder and that seems to be very unlikely to happen.

I use actions a lot in Photoshop, for formatting various documents, creating my own special effects and basically speeding up repetitive tasks. This tool is by far the most cost-effective in time and for me money. As others have said, I'm not a coder, nor am I interested in becoming one.

So much as I like Gimp and admire its creators, I can't see myself using it anytime soon.

I agree with you. Macros would me 1000 times better then having to learn programming like Script-fu requires. I'm very greatful for those who had/have that desire and created the wonderful Script-fus that I have, but it would be cool for a non-programmer like me to put some of my ideas into using actions (macros) if you will. Maybe one day. :)

Hey Lori. I'm sure you are probably aware of the Registry, but, I don't like to assum either. It is the grandaddy of plugins/Script-fus/python plugins for GIMP. Also, I highly recommend that you install the python ability in GIMP if you haven't done so already. Lot's of cool python plugins available. :)

I have seen the registry??? I think - seen too much with ubuntu that past few days.... LOL

In PS and PSP we have a preview of the whole item we are working on in the upper right hand corner.... ie so that when you are zoomed in, you can see the whole item.... you can also click on points on the image and your view goes there.... Is there anything like this in GIMP - trying to find it.... LOL

GIMP previews are pretty bad Lori. I agree that PS is superior with the previews especially since I upgraded to CS5 (rarely use it though; like Pixel Bender until it crashes my PC and have to reboot for stability issues since it hoses my NVidia driver; lol. Also like the fast zoom feature, but mainly I use PS to process my Leica Raw files). I'm much better with the GIMP no doubt and still not a master of it. I have an inner understanding too that I sort of know how a filter result will be even though the preview is all but useless, especially with the G'MIC plugin. Since I'm a sensor/feeler (Myers Briggs test), it's quite natural for me. Experience is key though and the only way to get it is to do. :)

It's not quite the same as PS but try this. In the top right of the Layers tab, Configure This Tab (red arrow), Add Tab, Images. Go back into the, Configure This Tab menu, Preview Size (yellow highlight), Enormous or Gigantic.

Learn something new everyday about GIMP Odinbc; I did not know that one for whatever reason, but layer previews really weren't much of a concern for me. My issue, of course, is plugin previews of course (atrosious in GIMP to say the least unless you use a PS plugin compatible with PSPI that has it's own display interface which there are too few that do). I did set my layer preview to enormous by the way (gigantic was way too big for my taste). lol
