    Hi All,

    My wife bought me Klaus Goelker's book 'Gimp 2.6 for Photographers' It says on the accompanying DVD and in the book it contains every thing needed to install Gimp software for Windows etc. Does this mean I have to download Gimp 2.6 as it does not appear to be on the DVD? Sorry if this is a basic question, but reading the blurb on the book I understood it to mean every thing was on the DVD.

    Regards

    clipper

    The starting point for windows Gimp installers is here
    <a class="postlink" href="http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/</a>

    The download link takes you to here
    <a class="postlink" href="http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html</a>

    but these are for the latest Gimp version 2.8.6

    if you want the last version 2.6.12 then you have to dig in the section called releases where you find

    <a class="postlink" href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-win/files/GIMP%20%2B%20GTK%2B%20(stable%20release" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-wi ... %20release</a>)/GIMP%202.6.12%20%2B%20GTK%2B%202.16.6/

    in case that does not work (edit it doesn't) this is the above 'tinyurled' <a class="postlink" href="http://tinyurl.com/bvlvrlj" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://tinyurl.com/bvlvrlj</a>

    then download the gimp-2.6.12-i686-setup-2.exe installer.
