Ex-photoshop user needs GIMP help


Hey, I'm a fairly new GNU/Linux user and i've been using Photoshop 7, cs, cs2 and cs3. I am what you could call a photoshop poweruser.

But I'm tired of M$ Windows and i want to install GNU/Linux on my computers so i have been running Fedora 7 and Ubuntu 7.04 through VMWare for about a week. I haven't made the final decision about which distro i wanna use, but since I'm an enthusiastic photographer i have been using GIMP everyday and now i have some questions.

Does TheGIMP have function similar to PS's "Create new fill or adjustment layer"? a function to use ie. levels or Hue/Saturation as a layer that you can adjust or erase from.

I would be happy if anyone would help me.

Regards.

(I don't know the answer.... )

You can also run PS on Linux using WINE or CrossOver Office.

I was a PS "power-user-in-training" when I got on the Linux bandwagon. I now use GIMP for 99% of all photo work.

I think getting Adobe to port the whole CS to Linux would be a real coup---do they realize there are now more Linux users than Mac users? (I have heard this, but can't substantiate it...)

PS on GNU/Linux

Well, i already run PS7 on Linux, but since adobe just released PS10 and Crossover is only compatibel with PS7.. GIMP can easily keep up with PS7.

I was allso thinking of using VMWare on GNU/Linux and virtualise windows and install PS10 that way.

In the Gimp, click on the Help menu and open the help manual. Check out the instructions on masking, layers, and hue/saturation tools. It's either addind a mask layer to work with, adjusting hues, or, it's duplicating the layer of interest, and working with that.
