eh.... I work as a webdesigner in an Amsterdam based 'top tier' New Media company. I do little in the way of print graphics thus this may be a bit off-topic... But, all my work is done in GNU/Linux in GIMP, whilst my co-workers use Macs and photoshop 5.x/6.x. The _one_ thing with we find to be a hassle wrt. GIMP is the fact that we can't share documents painlessly. There is a psd-save hack for GIMP, but the hack only saves in psd 4.0 and doesn't keep text layers dynamic. The Best Thing(tm) that could happen for us, is that a PHOTOSHOP plug-in be released that can read xcf into photoshop. CMYK, halftoning etc. would be nice indeed, but possibly a Photoshop xcf plugin might be easier? just my 0.02 avi _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
