Downloaded Yosemite.
It destroyed my 7 year old free PhotoStudio.
PhotoStudio was fairly easy to learn and provided ALL the tools one needed
to alter
photos with very professional results.  Easy sizing of tools.
Easy choices of color.  Easy learning of various tools.  Great software.
It was developed
then for the Wannabe editors for personal use.   and it was FREE. Just
challenging enough.
I'm distraught in having lost it.
Being FREE, I chose Gimp as a replacement, thinking Gimp was going to be
simple, like the old PhotoStudio was..

My Yosemite wouldn't allow download.  I downloaded MacPorts.. no good.  The
3rd download you offered,  it opened right up.  First off, tool box and
color chart popped up...easy choices.  Vertical box which I assume had
sizing & layers within but not simple to understand at first viewing.

  Next day,  Only the Image Manipulation Window appears....No tool box
choices.  No color choices.  No whatever that vertical box was trying to

Only access now to the GIMP program is the horizontalTool Bar, which
offered so many choices that it was overwhelming. Simple GIMP is NOT.

You know...there are a million of us intermediates out there that NEED
learning software.    A free service should be aimed toward intermediates
like me...who found PhotoStudio just difficult enough to challenge but easy
to learn, and a delight to use.  I'd be glad to pay $10 for a Free
software that helps me edit pictures for fun and a professional look with
simple tools.

Your GIMP is for the professional person...why do you give it away.

Why don't you have TWO free to attract the professional who
wants your complexity for free...and the second to TEACH the
beginning-intermediate editor to be a professional editor who could
understand and use your present GIMP.

Give us, for example,  the old PhotoStudio simplicity as a free software
editor.  That was a GREAT photo editor.  I recommended it to everyone I
knew.  Now it's obsolete.  What a pity... everyone now is supposed to be a
learned professional and we intermediates are left out.   Sincerely. Frances
