Configuring Startup in Gimp 2.4.7 Mac PPC
I have just installed the Gimp 2.4.7 Mac Tiger PPC (with the Help Files) on an iMac G4/800, 768 ram, Nvidia GeForce2 MX (32mb). I was using 2.6.8 but this is obviously the right version for my computer specs. Just a couple of Gimp startup questions. I am not much of a techie so please make your reply easy to follow!! How can I start the Gimp without the Splash Screen? Also, when the Gimp starts, there are 2 long, rectangular boxes. How can I get the "Layers, Channels, Paths" etc. box not to be part of the Gimp startup? Then, in the Main Menu box, I only want it to open only as far as the Paintbrush Configuration area. So when I start the Gimp, I just want the small Main Menu box to open. I am checking out the Preferences but can't see the answers to my questions there. Thanks.

Splashscreen: change your shortcut to "gimp -s"

"Main menu box": this stuff is highly configurable. You can drag many dialogs i nthere and they will stack nicely or organize in tabs. You can create other windows like this. Look for Gimp tutorials about "Dockable dialogs"

PS: You should really be using Gimp 2.6. 2.4 is obsolete.
