My Gimp Has no Tool-Options Folder?
Due to a catastrophic failure on my PC's part, the BiOS needed to be reset, and I effectively lost my irreplaceable copy of CS5 Extended. Since I do not have 1,000 dollars, and I NEED to be able to do graphic design, I'm putting all my faith into Gimp at this point, hahaha.

I just downloaded the GPS package for Gimp so that I could make photoshop-esque drawings if needed.

Huge problem: I was able to copy all of the folder contents (Brushes, Gradients, Palettes, Patterns) from the GPS package into the Gimp respective folders EXCEPT for Tool-Options. I'd assume that if I can't install the saved settings along with the package it's pretty much useless.

I've navigated every folder I could find within Gimp, and I can't find this damn thing XD.


While I love digital painting, my current task requires me to be capable of designing a shop sign, business cards, and logos. Is Gimp comparable to photoshop in the typography realm? This will be my first official professional job, so it HAS to look good. So far Gimp reminds me of photoshop elements, which was my favorite photoshop due to ease of use Smile Happy that I don't have to relearn EVERYTHING...haha.

Ah, I see. I'll keep trying to find it. My copy of CS5 was given to me by an art school friend that I do not have contact with anymore, so she has the disc and the key haha.

So Gimp is terrible for typography? That might be problematic. I'll check out Inkscape Smile
