Manual
Gentleman,

Please tell me how I can print the manual, also how do I download the manual into the program…I downloaded the zip file opened it with 7 Zip but couldn’t get it to work…I lost my photoshop 4.0 when my computer crashed and a friend told me your program is much better and free…on my very limited budget that was good news, but I do need to print the manual because I have difficulty reading things on the computer…thanks for the help…..ED

RE: Manual
The "manual" is not meant to be printed. There are PDF versions here: http://docs.gimp.org/download.html (slightly out of date since they are for 2.4). Otherwise you'll find good books about the Gimp.

RE: Manual
well, ofnuts beat me to it while I was writing but FWIW

From your post I am assuming you are using windows.

You normally do not have to unzip anything. Download the v2.6 help file from http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html gimp-help-2-2.6.0-en-setup.exe, run it and it installs into gimp.

It is possible to extract the files manually using "Universal Extractor" if required.

Printing all of it is going to be a chore, it is html, the help folders run to 2000 files including images.

One thing that might help in the short term is the older gimp 2.4 help file which is available in PDF format.
Get it from http://docs.gimp.org/2.4/pdf/en.pdf much of it is not much different from v2.6 and being pdf you can easily zoom in, although you can zoom in with a web browser equally as well.
screen shot http://i.imgur.com/uMrG6.jpg as you see it runs to 650 pages.
