The only workaround seems to be fairly radical: print from other software.
What are some recommended free software tools that I can use for this
workaround?  The Windows photo manager (or whatever it is called) is no
longer available after a two month free trial on my new netbook. What are
other good options for me to use as a workaround? I may need to install

SUGGESTION: for all bugs in Bugzilla, there should be a clear description of
how to workaround the problem.  I had to read all the posts and stumble on a
bit of text buried there.  I did not see a field anywhere in a formal bug
description with this info. Perhaps I am not looking in the right place?

I'm new to Gimp, spending a lot of time in past two weeks learning it to
make Xmas present photo gifts.  While this glitch prevented me from
completing my task in time, overall I'm pretty impressed with Gimp.
