I have downloaded Gimp on my Windows 10 too, but never use it. It is too complicated for me as I am too old now to start learning a new programme.

Here's one I did earlier and have been waiting to post. I use a very old version of Photoshop, I wouldn't think this is available now.

I think someone else mentioned that it doesn't matter about the tool it's how well you know the program. My own preference and process is to use the older programs then polish with the later photoshop stuff which tend to have a little more finesse for the fine tuning, although trying to get the old stuff to work in windows 10 can be a challenge. The biggest challenge I find with the later versions of windows is getting the old gedcom files working (which worked perfectly in Win 98)

Hi Trishanne

I do actually use Linux mint and have a copy of gimp on one of my computers through Linux so maybe i'll give Gimp a test drive in Linux first. I never thought of using gimp before but it has been sat on my Linux desktop for some time now

Quick small editions

Thanks for that Japeflakes, it's left me wondering when the first colour photo's came in use for the public. Maybe I should go look that up
