    What are the differences between gimp and gimpshop. I know gimpshop is based off gimp and I am assuming it is more mac native? I have used gimp before on my iBook and it was a very good software but if gimpshop is better then I 'd rather use the better software on my mbp. What about Seashore is that any good compared to the the other two?

    Thank you.

    I'd pick Gimpshop due to the menu system (like Photoshop). Seashore is nice since it's in Cocoa instead of X11.

    Well I personally don't care if I am running under X11 or not as I use open office all the time. But, being photoshop like does interest me. Are there any other differences between the products?

    I downloaded GIMPshop and the only difference is the menus and such. It's the layout. It doesn't offer anything different then GIMP unless I'm mistaken.
