RE: why are some tools not open to me
No, GIMP is totally free, no strings attached Smile The menu items that are grayed out are just not applicable to your image at that particular moment.

For instance, many of the entries in Filters only work on a full RGB image and won't work on GIF. If you want to use them on GIF files you have to convert the image to RGB first (Image/Mode/RGB), and like to convert the image back to indexed mode before saving s GIF.

If I guessed wrong, tell me which entries are grayed out and I'll find out why.
