Gimp Paint Studio
Gimp Paint Studio is a set of brushes designed to offer more advanced users a richer environment (than the default one already available in the Gimp image editing solution) to put their skills to work.
The collection also includes preset configuration of tools that can be used to speed up the editing process.
Integrating the new tools
Installing Gimp Paint Studio (GPS) has to be done manually by copying the files in the adequate folders created by Gimp on the system, which are generally located under the folder of the current user.
The developer of the brushes and the presets created the resources as a starting point that should provide the user an idea about the extensive flexibility of Gimp and further explore the possibilities on their own.
The collection of resources includes brushes, various settings for dynamics, gradients, palettes and patterns. As soon as GPS is included in the Gimp folders all resources become available in the application and can be refined and tweaked to fit users’ needs.
The list of new brushes contains about one hundred choices and includes variants of other brushes either available in Gimp as a default option or based on items created by other users.
Details about the brush presets can be found in GPS’ manual, which is not available in the archive with the resources but on the developer’s website.
Gimp Paint Studio is a nice addition to the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) and it holds sufficient resources to expand the horizons of an average user. For users already accustomed to the editing program having a wider range of presets to choose from should speed up the creative process.
