GIMP 2.7.3 for single window mode and layer groups

Perhaps the evolution of GIMP not as fast as we would like everyone, but its developers are still trying to advance to GIMP 2.8 Expected output. Meanwhile they appear new versions of the 2.7.x branch that incorporate features of which also mentioned a long time.

Thus, we have a GIMP 2.7.3 near-final version of single-window mode that mimics the interface of Photoshop and that was one of the most popular requests by users of this application. Of course, this mode of operation is not available by default and must be activated from the menu Windows-> Single Window Mode.

There other developments in GIMP 2.7.3, Namely:

  • Support for layer groups
  • Session Management
  • Improved text editing in the 'canvas'
  • Inclusion of a button to lock the contents in the layers, channels and paths.
  • Overlay to apply cutting guide image (crop) following the "rule of fifths"
You can check the list of new features in this version in official page for developers ,And now only have to wait to meet the plans and GIMP 2.8 appears before the end of the year.
