Making Gimp look like Photoshop

As a few of my regular readers know, I hate a bright interface so I was looking around how to make GIMP look darker. I found a theme online that looks rather like Photoshop and is much easier on my eyes while doing logo work for www.theaudiodb.com and www.thesportsdb.com

Gimp_dark

As you can see, I also use the single window interface as its much easier to work with on the desktop.

To install

  1. Download the theme from here
  2. Copy the “PrudenceDark” folder to C:\Users\Username\.gimp-2.8\themes
  3. Relaunch GIMP

I don’t really understand why GIMP don’t provide a dark theme as default but this is a great way to make it look great, and keep the familiar icons.
