Help. My Gimp 2,6 keeps shuting down. (Loads of new brusches)
Hello!

I am a beginner but have been playing/working with GIMP for about a month or two, and I really love it. I also work as a designer so I really need Gimp in my work as well....

When I downloaded a bunch of brusches (about 20 sets first) it started to shut down every 20 minutes? or so....well, it just froze, and I had to close GIMP with "ctrl + alt + del"

However, I continued using it, and I downloaded even more brusches. And now it is totally impossible to work with it at all. You can still start GIMP (it takes forever though) but when its done and I choose a picture and do 1-2 things with it (for example brightness/contrast) an error message shows up saying explorer.exe has encounter a problem, and then i have to shut gimp down.

Do I have to many brushes? I thought maybe my computer are not "strong" enough, so we "transferred" gimp and all brushes to my husbands computer, which is stronger (sry if I use wrongs words) BUT the problem remains...Please help me!!!

Thank you so much for your answer. Maybe its time to clear.....I dont use all of them. Maybe I have downloaded 100 sets.

I checked memory like you said, and it says 2046 MB. I have no idea if that is a lot or to little?? (my husband is the computer-personWink

I did delete A LOT of the brushes, that I dont need, and I also deleted all the patterns, (Oops?) and now it works!! it is even fast!!! But ive just tested a couple of minutes....
