GIMP, the free image editing and authoring tool has got itself a shiny new version number: 2.8.

The program has had a huge amount of changes to it in this update. Here's the page of release notes too. Make sure you give them all a once over if you're using this in your pipeline in any way. The new Save and Export features in particular might be of interest.

    Hmm I've never been the biggest Gimp fan but with new pen pressure tools I might give it a spin.

    I use gimp for exactly one feature, you can define a brush as in image file with colour. Photoshop still doesn't support brushes except as grey scale alphas. It's a real pain brining a psd into Gimp just to paint some trees and other props on to paint overs. I wish Photoshp would just add that feature already.
