Gimp is slow, help?
I have been using gimp for a while,
2008- till now.

These are my problems with GIMP,

-Whenever I load a photo like something big maybe, it freezes and then something pops up telling me to close it, same thing to editing something then it freezes randomly and I have to start over again Sad

-Using custom brushes or big brushes makes my gimp very slow..

So is there anyway to fix this?

RE: Gimp is slow, help?
How big is big? How many pixels? How much RAM do you have? What operating system do you use? Which Gimp version? How many brushes/fonts/patterns have you added? What pops up? A system message? A Gimp message?
