    Gimp help

    ok so I downloaded GIMP
    but it wont let me open the file and start using it ...
    when I click on it a box pops up
    saying I need to choose what program I want to use to open it
    but when I pick a program like lets say MSPaint
    it says that it can't read the file
    someone told me that I still have to install it
    but i dont know how to do that

    so what am I doing wrong?

    and how do I install a zip file thats already downloaded onto my computer????

    someone please help me I really want this thing to start working

    You need to download a program that will unzip your zip file and allow you to access the graphics file inside.

    I use Ultimate Zip myself. You'll want the 3.1 version. Once UZ is installed, just double click on the zip file and extract the contents to your HD. Then open the file with gimp and you should be fine.

    Good luck.

    I'm not sure if this will help, but when you downloaded the GIMP did you also download GTK+ 2 Runtime Environment you need that to run GIMP properly

    did you download the GTK programs as while as GIMP because in order for GIMP to work you have to download those programs as while

    oh gwenibe beat me to it

    Glad I could help.

    I figured you had already installed the runtime your you couldn't have tried to open the zip file with GIMP. GIMP would never have come up.

    if there's anything else, let us know and we'll see what we can do.

    Good luck.
