Newbie in more than once sense
Hey all,

I am returning to Windows (8.1 Pro) after 7 years as an OSX. Combined with that I am returning to GIMP after all those years of using Photoshop on Macs. You will undoubtedly find me asking questions on GIMP in general, and probably a few on GIMP under Windows specifically.

Out of curiosity, how many of you are using GIMP under Windows? In general I'm looking forward to diving into GIMP!

Cheers,
Dany.

RE: Newbie in more than once sense
Welcome to the forums Dany! I'm a windows user myself, & by coming back to 8.1 after several years is no possible, coming back to win8 is yes, 8.1 was just released last month.

Anyways, it won't be hard to re-transition back into windows since you started with mac, its difficult the other way around (win to mac) since mac's user interface inspired windows build (look at all the similarities from the very start.) IMO winOS's are a little more user friendly but crash more.

so dive right in and have a great time Gimping, be patient with it and since your back on windows, check out the gimp documentation for the tools & general help first.
http://docs.gimp.org/2.8/en/

You can search specific tools using google or any search engine by typing toolname gimp doc

RE: Newbie in more than once sense
Sorry, my first sentence was nonsense. I have been an OSX+Photoshop user at home for 7 years. I only purchased a Dell laptop with Win 8.1 Pro last week. I'm not brand new to Windows since I am a .NET developer by day, living in Win 7 world all day. However, being on Windows full time, especially at home where I am free to tweak everything, is quite a different world. I have run Linux of various flavours in the past too. The "newbie" aspect to me is running Windows full time and taking the plunge into GIMP as a Photoshop alternative. Looking forward to it! Smile
