We recently did a post to make GIMP look and feel like Photoshop. You can go check this page for more.

GIMP has just released a new version 2.6.9 which has a huge number of bug fixes as the major changes. There are no additional features in this release. The complete list of bug fixes is available at  this page. Some of the important ones fixed in this release are:
