I'll explain how to get gimp right here.. feel free to ask questions.


1: Click here.

2: You need to download G2K+ Runtime Environment. Click on the top one if you have Windows 2000 or newer, click on the bottom if you have Windows 98, ME or NT4.
Image
Download it.

5: Go back to this page. Click on the GIMP one as shown below.
Image

Again, feel free to ask questions. Happy GIMPing!

EDIT: People don't know how to save on GIMP, so I'll make a tutorial on that..

1: Make sure you go to File > Save. A window should come up like below..
Image
MAKE SURE YOU CLICK THAT PLUS - SIGN BUTTON!

2: Choose the file type you want. I chose PNG. Once you've chosen the file type you want, click save.
Image

3: (1)Click 'Export' if a window like that comes up - (2)if not, simply click 'Ok'.

(1) Image

(2) Image

4: If you were one that chose 'Export', just press 'Ok' after you pressed Export.

There you go! Just go to an image uploading site and upload it..any questions PUH-LEASE ask it!

Why don't you just say that we should go to gimp.org or whatever it is instead of typing it and searching Google?
Otherwise, this guide is bound to help those who can't read instructions on the site :P

I use GIMP myself, and it's a great thing of you to do, letting people know about it. Thanks!

I believe it's me, and not the program, I can't seem to work out my way through it. And I'm not able to do anything else than take the pencil and draw over my pictures...hehe :mrgreen: I'm usualy very good to find my way through programs but this one is just evil until i find how to work it :twisted:

Ok first of all Could you pm me mega horn. Maybe with some pictures on how this thing works I got everything downloaded. But, I was like wow how do I look and use the normal pencil. I am a very bad art creator. But I could become a good one gimp sounds good. Just a little tutorial sounds good to think about it computer art sounds fun.

You know what? I really don't get this. Mega_Horn: You don't have to post the direct link here if you don't want to, but at least just type the URI in here or something. I think "n00bs" would be a lot more confused if they type "GIMP" in google and perhaps the search results changed.
Meaning, I think you should change the first post and just say: Go to this URI. What if the correct link one day shows up as nr. 11 on the search results?

You could use the free archiver 7-Zip, which I think is the best free archiver. Click here to go directly to the mirror.

If you're having more problems, I think it's best if you PM me or someone else, because that's not really what this topic is about :D
Good luck!
