It says "the application will be launched using the installed Icon", but I can't find that Icon.
When I go under my program files, I do not see it and the only thing there is an option to select the language.

aarrgghh

A lot of time the icons to install programs go straight to your desktop. If it's not there then I'll download it and try to figure it out for you.


wierd its not there ..

I am going to uninstall it and try again.
thanks ..

This might help

Go to this website

http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html

Download GTK + 2 for Windows Click Download then choose an American Server Preferrably Save it to you desktop and open it.

Download The Gimp for Windows Follow the same steps..

GTK +2 has to be installed prior to The Gimp.

I even tried a different mirror.

there is a link to uninstall it though, which is getting ready to come in handy .... Again!

quik question ...

In your hippie image, you have a lasso around the hippie, telling gimp how to edit just the pic and remove the background. I have been reading tutorials all evening and can't figure out how to select just the person and get rid of the back ground.

uggh ..

You can't just select the hippie, because as far as the program is concerned, the original picture is flat, its one layer and everything is connected. There is no difference between the hippie and the background for the program. You have to physically outline the hippie with the lasso tool in order to "select" him. If the Gimp has a magnetic lasso like Photoshop does, I'd suggest using that because the program helps you outline it (based on colors) instead of the plain lasso.

No problem. I can see how easy it would be to think that from his example. Its certainly something that would be nice if it existed since it'd make things much easier.

Thanks a lot ACS and everyone else who posts ridiculous sigs and player cards. I'm going to get to learning this and start posting cool cards/sigs. I used to use Photoshop regularly when I was in High School for some gaming league that I owned but have completely forgotten how to use it to tell you the truth. I'll post up some stuff when I get going again. Thanks for the help and inspiration.
