In March, a Photoshop plug-in interface (Photoshop 8bf filters loader) was developed, which made it possible for you to use all your favourite Photoshop plug-ins in Gimp on - not only Windows - but also Linux!
PSPI PSPI - or Photoshop Plug-in Interface - is the name of the plug-in. This filter is not the first attempt to enlarge the range of possibilities for Gimp-users (and definitely not the last). However, this is one of the best; contrary to previous plug-ins that never succeeded in adding great functionalities that Gimp did not already offer, this is a success - regardless how advanced the features might be.
We at osalt.com welcome this type of features, since they obviously strengthen the position of open source products as alternative. So thanks to Tor Lillqvist, who developed the plug-in.
