Why RHEL 5.4?

Anyway, install the EPEL repository, then:

Code:
yum install wine gimp

GIMP has functions similar to Photoshop, but it may not have all the advanced features that you need**. The user interface is different (I think better), so it takes some getting used to.

If you are going to use RHEL, then be sure to buy a support subscription---otherwise get Fedora or CentOS (if you really like a RedHat type system.



**For me GIMP does everything I need. IMHO, most Photoshop users do not NEED the advance features.

If you really need the look and feel of photoshop, check out GimpShop. Its still Gimp, just set up in such a way to look more like photoshop.

"gimpShop"
is a bastardized version of thew very old Gimp2.2

you would be better off using the single window setting in Gimp2.8

also
RHEL5 ONLY will work with Gimp2.2 a VERY VERY OLD version of gimp (gimp-2.2.13-2.0.7.el5_8.5.i386.rpm)

RHEL6 only uses Gimp2.6 ( the current is Gimp 2.8)
