Hi Orlando,

please don't get me wrong here. That the GIMP developer will "never" free GIMP 
from X11 on OS X is not caused by they (we) are not willing to do so, but 
simply by the fact that there is no direct connection between GIMP and X11 on 
the technical view.

May be I can althtough encourage you to give GIMP a chance on OS X (as I do day 
by day). Concerning the "getting images into" issue: You can D'n'D image files 
to the dock to open them and (IIRC) you can also transfer them using the 
clipboard. Please note, that you need to press Command-C to transfer to the 
clipboard, but Ctrl-V (!) to retrieve it on the (ugly) X11 side.

Don't hesitate to ask further questions anyways.

Greetings, lexA
