GIMP 2.8.0 Layout Options
I was just wondering, how do I modify my GIMP layout to look and operate like this. It seems to be a lot like Adobe Photoshop, which appeals to me. Right now, I hate the default layout and how things move every time I re-open GIMP. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated!

Remember me from the Blender Forum? Anyway, after you get the Window layout the way you want it, go to Edit/Preferences/Window Management, then clickon Save Window Positions Now, and you might want to uncheck save window positions on exit.

Oh, 'allo! I am not surprised in the least to see people from Blender Artists on here as well. I also figured out that if you go to Windows > Single-Window Mode, it docks all of the pallets and you can rearrange them however you want. My ex-girlfriend is actually lending me her old monitor from her previous computer, so once I get another graphics chip for my computer, I will have dual monitors and I will probably put all of the pallets on the second screen, so that I can fully focus on drawing.

One thing you should also know, if you don't already, is that the guy in the video you posted is using a Wacom Tablet, probably an Intuos 4, or something on that order. But you'll need to get one eventually if you're serious about digital art. But in the video the adjustments he's making are pen pressure and ect. Functions you won't have without a Tablet.

Thank you. Actually, I created a thread here and then I figured out that I needed the latest tablet driver and the proper settings in GIMP. All is well now!
