It should be

activated automatically. If your GIMP look the same as on the Screenshot here then the Layout is used.

You have to run gimp at least once..

before You can install the photoshop layout,did You? Else, just undo the photoshop layout as written here and try again https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/gimp_portable/photoshop_...

Sorry for Missing This

So, you've run GIMP at least one, and the layout isn't as specified in the screenshot above? You shouldn't have the background unless you install the background plugin as well, but the placement of the palettes should be the same.

Did you let the installer automatically find where to install to? You should be installing to your GIMPPortable folder.

Ok, another try

To make sure You have no corrupted download extract gimp to your desktop , proceed as below then copy it over to Your USB drive.
goto
%Your drive%:\PortableApps\GIMPPortable\Data\settings\
and -if there - delete the files "sessionrc" and "sessionrc-backupbeforepslayout",
then start gimp once and close it again, make sure You have no corrupted pslayoutinstaller, then install the pslayout, run gimp again, it should look like the picture you mentioned. If not there might be a corrupted gimp install.

Same problem

Have tried all the above with no success, same problem as hamohd70. Tried uninstalling everything and then doing a fresh download of -GIMP_Portable_2.4.5_Rev_2.paf.exe- and -GIMP_Portable_Photoshop_Layout_1.0.paf.exe- .
Reninstalled Gimp, run once, closed down then reinstalled Photoshop layout, restarted Gimp but still no Photoshop layout! Running on XP Pro

Last efforts...

to make it clear:
Gimp doesn´t look like Adobe CS3 afterwards , it´s just a rearrangement of the tools appearance photoshop like
goto data/settings, open a file called sessionrc with notepad
and replace the contents by:

# GIMP sessionrc
# 
# This file takes session-specific info (that is info, you want to keep
# between two GIMP sessions).  You are not supposed to edit it manually, but
# of course you can do.  The sessionrc will be entirely rewritten every time
# you quit GIMP.  If this file isn't found, defaults are used.

(session-info "toolbox" "dock"
    (position 131 -4)
    (size 128 746)
    (open-on-exit)
    (dock
        (book
            (current-page 0)
            (dockable "gimp-tool-options"
                (tab-style preview)))))
(session-info "dock" "dock"
    (position 440 0)
    (size 250 767)
    (open-on-exit)
    (aux-info
        (show-image-menu "false")
        (follow-active-image "true"))
    (dock
        (book
            (current-page 2)
            (dockable "gimp-navigation-view"
                (tab-style name))
            (dockable "gimp-histogram-editor"
                (tab-style name))
            (dockable "gimp-brush-grid"
                (tab-style name)))
        (book
            (position 255)
            (current-page 0)
            (dockable "gimp-color-editor"
                (tab-style name)
                (aux-info
                    (current-page "GimpColorSelect")))
            (dockable "gimp-undo-history"
                (tab-style name)))
        (book
            (position 542)
            (current-page 0)
            (dockable "gimp-layer-list"
                (tab-style name)
                (preview-size 16))
            (dockable "gimp-channel-list"
                (tab-style name)
                (preview-size 32))
            (dockable "gimp-vectors-list"
                (tab-style name)
                (preview-size 32)))))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-file-open-dialog"
    (position 126 102)
    (size 768 576))

(last-tip-shown 14)

# end of sessionrc 

That should work, if not, there´s perhaps a problem with the launcher/gimp not reading the Data/settings folder contents Wink

Just wanted to report that

Just wanted to report that this layout works fine on Windows2000. Of course I started GIMP multiple times before I installed the new layout. One thing I noticed is that Opening files using the GIMP window still closes the program (crash). I use the WinOpen plugin which always works fine no matter which version of GIMP I use it in.

Also, If i decide to not use this layout how to I return to the original???

just use the uninstaller linked to on the Plugin's page.

ok....so that means I can't

ok....so that means I can't switch between the two (the default and Photoshop) inside GIMP....alright. I'll live with it like this for a while and see how I like it.

Thanks

or

you can keep both the installer and the uninstaller on your drive and switch...
Or you could have 2 portable GIMPs (but I think that would be a liitle over the top) Smile

combined with bakcground

combined with bakcground window it's pretty close, but i really hate that the windows are just attached to the background window thus when you have it active they are on top of existing windows, instead of inside the background window, which is pretty much perfered and its also unsupported which is also a flat out bummer.

I had the same problem BUT

Hi,

This info is from the sessionrc file:
"
# GIMP sessionrc
# This file takes session-specific info (that is info, you want to keep
# between two GIMP sessions). You are not supposed to edit it manually, but
# of course you can do. The sessionrc will be entirely rewritten every time
# you quit GIMP.
"

Follow below steps:

- Run and close GIMP, because when you close GIMP then it entirely rewrites that instance of sessionrc file what it really uses.

- Search for "sessionrc" files on all of your drives. Whichever instance of sessionrc has the most recent "Date Modified" parameter is the one, what is used and rewritten by your GIMP installation (every time you open and close the application).

- Therefore, overwrite that instance of sessionrc file (what is actually used by GIMP) with that instance of sessionrc file what you find in the folder (...\GIMPPortable\Data\settings), where you installed the GIMP Photoshop Layout add-on.

- Launch GIMP

That's all Smile

layout

hi!

I can install the layout, I just tried what is that, but I don't want it. Nowhere I can find how to remove, so create an installer to remove the PS layout ROFL

same page uninstaller

there's an uninstaller on the photoshop layout page.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
