I am having a lot of trouble getting a working copy of gimpshop onto my computer. I do not have an internet connection at home, and no working laptop, so am unable to port it over from any downloading site. I have tried downloading from the public library onto a flashcard, and it installed perfectly onto the flashcard, but when I take the flashdrive home, the application will not run on my computer (XP operationg system), because it does not recognize Gimpshop as a win32 program. Once back at the library, the application runs perfectly.
I am new to macs and to GIMP and was hoping someone could help. I'm trying to install an .abr files into the brushes on GIMP 2.8 and using OSX Mountain Lion. I have downloaded the .abr and am able to copy it but when I try to paste it into the brushes folder in the GIMP files, it wont let me. I have done the show package contents, resources, etc. to get to the brushes folder but just cant get it to drag in there.
It seems like this ought to be simple, but to my simple mind, it is really, really hard.
I have two half page images and a full page editing area. It would be convenient if I could paste the images some place other than on top of each other. Even better would be to paste one at the top of the canvas and the other at the bottom. My Googling got me to some "floating layer" stuff, but the two images were on top of each other regardless of the "layer". How do I just thell Gimp, "here is the upper left corner of where I want you to paste the paste buffer"? Thank you!!
