Hi! Lately I've been discussing with a collegue of mine some differences between Gimp and Photoshop and how long-time Ps user feel when seated in front of Gimp. I know… I know… the neverending subject, but I'm not trying to start the flame again, so… please keep your matches and petrol away ;) — I'm geuinely interested what you think.
The thing is, that we concluded that permamenet transition or even occasional use of Gimp would be much more appealing for Ps-bred guys (like me ;)) if one would have possibility to use the same (or at least much similar) keyboard shortcuts. I know—there are a couple of ready “configs” to be placed in Gimp's config dirs, but that's the part of the problem. There's significant number of people among graphic designers for whom navigating somewhere in directory structure to change this or that file would be too much to ask. I'm saying that NOT to laugh at them—they're skilled and tallented designers I'm sure, but let's face the fact. So, how about a small extension to GUI to let one choose one of predefined shortcut sets and including “Photoshop compatible” shortcuts to the source tree? I know many people would be much pleased with that, since a seasoned Ps user tend to rather “just poke the right key” to do his bidding that to wander through the menu. I'm not trying to prove one shortcut scheme better than the other. Now seriously… what do you think? Regards! thebodzio
