I still have ps7 somewhere on my dads pc. That reminds me that I have to call him. that just reminds me of the first time that I used photoshop back in my sophmore year in high school. It just seems that most of the hotkeys have not really changed all that much.

GIMP



How To Download GIMP (it's free!!)
Alright,downloading GIMP isn't as easy as you would think.Most people when some one asks for how/where to download GIMP they give them www.gimp.org , that is partially correct. However, what they do not say, is that there are more steps then just going to the website.


  • First, you go to this site:
Installers for GIMP for Windows

The GIMP for Windows (version 2.2.17)

  • After the GTK+2 Runtime Environment and Gimp have both been installed onto your computer, you go to your download file, you open the GTK file, and you let the Install Wizard on your computer do the rest, same goes for Gimp 2.2.17.
I hope this was helpful.

(Thanks to A7XFREAK!!)

Did another thread get merged with this one?

If so, I will add the guides to a seperate part of the OP if ArMageDdon doesn't mind.
