    When I try and install Gimp on OS X, it says I need X11 installed.

    I read its on one of the two apple installer cds that comes with your Mac. However, the only thing I saw that was X11 on the cds was "X11 SDK"... So I installed X11 SDK and Gimp still says I need X11 installed.

    Could someone help me out here?

    Thanks!

    It should be under your Optional installations for OS X.

    Thanks for the screen shots...

    This was plain of me, but I simply didn't scroll down when the window with the cd contents came up. Usually its the simple things that stump us :p

    I didn't care for Gimp, so I may try and find that thing that will skin Gimp to look like and act more like Photoshop CS. If not, I'll just get CS 3 when the Universal binary comes out next year.

    GIMP is a really good application, it's just as user-friendly as photoshop is. You just installed it earlier today, don't dismiss it already. Give it a chance. The difference between GIMP and photoshop won't be what gives you good results, it's the experience.
