    It's really starting to bother me that gimper.net does not have a favicon....just to let you know...
    In firefox..its kind of a necessity to have one. ;)

    Thats a good point.
    Seems like a forum devoted to an image manipulation program should have a good favicon to go with it.

    sglider, I like your first one, but I think the G should be the one in bold and the N overlayed.
