That being said, I understand FreeBSD's GIMP port is very outdated. Just be patient, or better yet port it yourself and share the patches, if you have the skills and time.
Sometimes the maintainers need a little "push". Maybe send them an e-mail.

If you can't wait, then use whatever already suits your needs best. Yes, this includes "live Linux CD", Windows or anything else... You're not tied to anything or anyone.
I will use BSD application like GIMP or Photoshop but it is difficult to find them...
I use ArtX live LINUX cd and it works very good (if someone want to try).
