GIMP Now Available As A Native App For Mac

Mac: GIMP is a fantastic free alternative to Photoshop for all desktop operating systems, but on Mac it was a bit of a pain to set it up. Today, however, Gimp has been made available with a standard DMG installer.

Now, to install GIMP on your Mac, you just open the downloaded DMG file and drag the to your Applications folder, just like any other Mac app. Easy as pie.

The latest 2.8.2 update fixes some bugs, while version 2.8 added a new interface and features, such as layer groups and on-canvas text editing.

Here's the link to the download file:

    Does it uninstall the old version? If not, any suggestions on how to do this? Thanks

      The app has the same name. You drag it to Applications and it will overwrite the old one

      It may be useful to uninstall the old one before installing the new one regardless. It wouldn't hurt, just in case.
      It's really easy to do... open the applications folder on the dock, then drag the Gimp app to the trash.

      The only Reason i have is because of Gimp, so if your not using it for anything else then it can be removed too. A quick google will give instructions.

    Hmm. For the first time I may be interested. I was looking at pixelmator but apparently 2.1 removes a lot of useful features.
