Im talking of course about GNU Image Manipulation Program. I ask because I've been thinking about downloading it for a long time (I want a digital colouring programme badly :D). Problem is there's only one family computer in my house and I wouldn't want to risk downloading anything which could damage our files.

Can anyone who uses GIMP let me know how its working out for you? Or of any alternatives?

Thanks a mil :hug:

The Gimp is an excellent freeware program, I highly recommand it. You'll have no problem with it. :tmb:

I have no problems with it. It's pretty simple to use and you can do quite a bit of stuff with it. You'll enjoy it. :tmb:

Thanks for the feedback. Now all I have to do is convince the overlord (ie: my Dad :D) :wve:

Be patient with it. If you are accustomed to MS paint it will take a while to get used to. It is well worth the effort because it is incredibly powerful. The GIMP site can direct you a a whole host of user group support and tutorials.

Yeah, I must say its a big change from what Im used to. But Im checking the tutorials frequently so hopefully it will do some good :)
