:) Now as soon as OSX gets polished to the "usable on a daily basis" level, I might consider getting it... also still waiting for a sufficient # of important compatible software releases at this point (hello? Adobe?).

LOL... Kinda funny that I *so* pride myself on being "Microsoft Free," but I'm a total slave to Adobe products... But at least Adobe is only trying to dominate one relatively small market segment, I s'pose.

They say they'll be releasing for OS X soon... we shall see....

It's not just PhotoShop... it's also InDesign, GoLive, AfterEffects, Acrobat... When I say "total slave" I really do mean it! :) All the same, is MacGimp full featured now? I'd heard it was still a pretty choppy Beta...

I can see what you mean.!!!

Go this from the MacGimp Site:

The first release of the product will ship on June 25 2001 and will cost $24.95.

Here is what's included on the MacGIMP CD:

  • easy Mac-style point-and-click (Mindvision) installer
  • stable rootless implementation of XFree86 4.0.3, plus XFree86 4.1
  • customized window manager that looks like Classic (see window below)
  • complete documentation in HTML and PDF formats
  • helpful tutorials to get you started
  • more than 100 filters plus default brushes and patterns
  • true type fonts and sample artwork
  • everything you need to conveniently edit web graphics in MacOS X
  • source code for all of the above, including the GIMP_Cocoa project

    Only problem at the moment is no CMYK, but they reckon will be sorted with the next release/update.

    (Not a bad for a try-out?!?!?How much is Photoshop:)

    Hope this helps.

    My boss buys my software, and Adobe has a very nice licensing feature that allows you to install a single licensed copy on both your work and home machines, if you work from home sometimes... which I do.

    Free is a pretty good price, eh? :)

    I'll have to look into MacGimp though, when I upgrade my home machine.
