Setting up GIMP

Starting GIMP for the first time takes some time as the tool sets itself up.

Gimp-12

The default setup results in a set of windows, each displaying some specific tools.

This is the toolbox.

And then we have the drawing window.

Gimp-14

And some features like layers and brushes are inside yet another window.

If this looks a bit confusing you are not alone. Luckily we can easily switch the window layout to a more familiar one by selecting Windows>Single-Window Mode.

After this change all the windows are located inside one main window.

Alright, I think we are ready for some serious image processing!
