Rainbow brand new and completely clueless
Hey there. I just downloaded GIMP.....at least I think I did. Something appears to be very wrong and I an struggling. I did not see a "new users who ask stupid questions" thread so please, if there is somewhere else I should be, by all means tell me!

I have to say also that I have absolutely no idea about anything graphic design related and a friend said this was an excellent program to cut my teeth on. Plans are to start with the tutorials as soon as I can.

I am running Mac OS 10.13.5 and it took me nearly all day to figure out how to install this! All of the suggestions are over a year old and none of them seemed to be right on point.

I think I actually have it on my laptop now, but when it opens everything is grey/black. There are not lovely color graphics or images as shown in the tutorials. Is this normal for Mac users? The only image that has any color is the GIMP "about" image.

Help please.......and thank you!!

Thank you!!! Yes this is my first attempt to resolve my question and I did go over to the other place. Can you tell me how to delete my account here? I surely do not want my mail box to be overrun with spam from these folks!! Thanks again!
