    Don't worry about using CS2, I'm on CS and it works just as good, too.

GIMP's layers system really messes with me, for another example.
    There is a plug in for GIMP somewhere that re-arranges the menus and some of the tool text to make it closer in appearance to make it easier for people to convert. It also changes some of the keyboard shortcuts. Of course, if the shortcuts are the main thing for you, you can do those fairly easily in a manual way.

    Or you could just stick with Photoshop. If you already have it and are used to it, the only thing I can think of wanting the Gimp for are RobA's scripts and the Image Hose.

    Well.. to be fair, the ability to use colored brushes IS a tremendous time saver for throwing together a quick map that looks pretty darn decent... And as you said, there are some really great scripts out there...

    Do you mean Gimpshop? Never used either, but I remembered the melding.
