FYI - Technical and personal background
I'm NEW - Just today joined. Came here because Adobe messed up my Photoshop - it's obvious why! (grin)
I use a Lumix -- DCM-FZ-30 camera, and 90% of my needs are saving my photos on my computer. NO amateur home stuff, Some E-bay, and descriptive shots for other's info.
and documentation. Using Photoshop was a breeze - had been using it more that 7 years. But the light stuff. No highly technical stuff. Now, I know absolutely zero about Gimp, and would like to know if adding my photos to my computer, would I encounter any problems, or would I have to do anything special? Am Using Windows 7 on a Dell.

A little light Background:
Retired Commercial photographer -- am a WW II Veteran, I would appreciate any help and info you can give me to get me using Gimp for my needs. AND --[/b}at my age, "sometimes" I'm a little dense, (grin) Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Also - any other apps - or? I might need besides the main program? (Which I will download this evening)

Ancient one, but still, if you can get the version for linux & it works for you, its great to try out! So I'd say give it a run, its especially good for light stuff.

Gimp is similar to Photoshop but things will be in different places (some tools have different names, uses, etc.)

*But if you just need a program to open/view & adjust brightness/color. It might be faster to find a free software to view/open quickly those photos. I think irfranview would work in that case, see this question(top question linked)

So welcome to the forums ^_^
& Happy Gimping!
