Sorry to contradict but as user i always found RANDOM tips absolutely useless
Instead will be handy a more advanced kind of tooltip...
just a example
now tooltip is "open a image from a specific location"
what i would like is simply "open a image from a specific location...for more
info click HERE"
And a click on that "HERE"( or clicking anywhere inside the tooltip if that
technically more easy) will simply correspond to press F1...will hopen the
contestual help and so the related help page
User may not know about contestual gimp help and pressing F1 but even the most
dumb will understand "for more click here"
That will add usability to one of the best resource of gimp, the gimp help
And still i don't understand so much effort to create something more complex
then a image windows opening with a blank drawable of default size ready to be
resized at users wish or replaced by the first image loadad from File/open
that , is all what user wish expect and know and are confident with
I fear they will not feel comfortable with something else more sophisticated
I'm confident that for most of new users only problem with the image windows is
simply that it does NOT open at soon gimp is loaded
Opening Gimp they expect the most simple but for them, functional thing a
image windows with a white drawable space ready to be resized or replaced by
the first image they wish to open..simple as that
Then i want thank for a the impressive improving from gimp 2.2
if i step here is not to criticize but hoping to contribute at least with my
users experience and the feedback i get daily from other users,often at their
first experiences with gimp
