Just a thought, that I don't think anybody's suggested yet,
is what operating system are you using?
I mean I know you said you did a lot of work on it before
you took it into Gimp, so perhaps you have still a version of
it that is pre-Gimp somewhere else, CD USB etc, or better
yet, might be able to access a backup point on Win 7 or Time
Machine etc on Mac to go back to a previous version?
I've never even set up . Machine on mine, but I see it is
available, and I have used restore points on Windows 7, which
actually worked amazingly well...
Just a thought.
