New to GIMP, have a few questions.

As the title says, I am VERY new to GIMP (but having fun playing around with it) and Have a few questions.

1.) Is there any way to get all the GIMP windows to be locked? (By this I mean have all windows maximize, minimize and hold their location when changing image size)

2.) Are there any plug-ins to get GIMP to open Paint Shop Pro images and for PSP to open GIMP Images?

3.) How do I use the .py files? I have downloaded several and cannot seem to get them to work.

I have (the main one I am trying to use) molten-material_0.py, I have tried using it in my
Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins as well as my
C:\Users\(User Name)\.gimp-2.6\plug-ins folder (I removed user name for my example)

and just cant seem to get it to work, I do have Python installed on my PC.

4.) Is there a free plug-in (for PSP or GIMP) that comes close to the detail of LunarCell?

Forums: 

Did you have have python installed prior to the installation of GIMP or after? If you installed Python AFTER GIMP then you need to re-install GIMP so it can recognize the Python installation.

Not yet, on PSP. No idea if it will ever be considered (at least I haven't seen any mention of having GIMP recognize PSP files). There are easy alternatives to moving tubes and shapes into GIMP from PSP. Do some Google searching.

I can't answer about LunarCell.

I installed it after. If I re-install GIMP will I have to re-install all the additions I have added to it?

I know, I work in PSP, GIMP and a few other programs would like to move back and forth for various features.

As long as you don't un-install GIMP and all its folders, you should be fine just re-installing GIMP over the top of your existing GIMP.

Have you downloaded all the required modules? Check the info here:

If not, get all the required python modules before re-installing GIMP.
