The stock icons for The GIMP and Inkscape are nice enough, but if you’d rather replace them with Adobe Creative Suite-esque alternatives, you can.

The desire to switch the default icons of The GIMP (a, er, dog or coyote chewing on a paintbrush) and Inkscape (an inky mountain) for uniform Adobe-style alternatives will, naturally, not be to everyone’s tastes.

Being able to ‘scratch an itch’ is part of the beauty of open-source software.

DeviantArt user ~RohitAwate explains his reason for creating these two icons:

“I loved Adobe’s icons for Photoshop and their other apps and wanted similar ones for GIMP/Inkscape. But after a long and fruitless search, I just decided to make them on my own. Thought I would share them with you!”

Rohit’s replacement GIMP and Inkscape can be downloaded from DeviantArt at the link below. Included are two icons (as .svg files) and complete step-by-step instructions on how to ‘install’ them.
