Re: SOS - The GIMP did not un-install cleanly - print malfunctions


What Moose said. emoticon

Also...

"Save Picture As"
File Name: temple
Save As Type: GIF
[SAVE]

This sounds like you did save it as a gif, and only need to change the default program that opens it. To do this, just follow the directions I posted with the screen grab above.

But that's EXACTLY what I did (I'm not that wet behind the ears!

Yet the forementioned results resulted.

Bottom line:
I still have GIMP residues as forementioned.

If you have uninstalled GIMP, you can safely delete anything GIMP related on your computer


Mooseman, I deleted aforesaid GIMP folder, then tried saving Temple.gif for the 2nd time (i.e. "saved as GIF") yet the qurk remains as previously mentioned (I.E. File Type states: "TheGIMP20"

Damned, what took me so long to understand that ??? emoticon

Oh, I am not sure how to get rid of that, if I only had your puter in front of me, I could do it...

Re: SOS - The GIMP did not un-install cleanly - print malfunctions


And I don't know why I didn't think about googling thegimp20 until just now. emoticon

In the second link I found, someone explained how to change the file association manually:

Because .gif is already associated with TheGimp20 you might not be able to get the "Open With" to appear.

Here's one way to deal with it. Type winfile in the Run box (hit Return key). This will bring up the old W31 style File Manager. A bit like Windows Explorer but with "short DOS style file names". For example, mydocu~1 means "My Documents".

Find any .gif file, highlight it, then select File/Associate from the drop down at the top of the page. In the box that comes up, hold down the top arrow until the word None appears. Highlight it and click OK.

You will then be able to re-associate .gif using the method given in post #1 above.

Post #1 described the normal way of changing file associations.

If that doesn't work, there's the option of downloading a program...

The first link that came up was this message board post, where someone recommended downloading Imgeditor to change your default image editor for various file types (info on the program here).

Imgeditor (21K zip) application allows you set (or change) the default image editor application for all or specific image file types. The image editor which is set, is launched when you click the edit button in the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, or when you right click an image and choose Edit. In addition, this utility can fix the file associations for various image files types. See Miscellaneous section in the utility's main screen). This utility was written for Windows XP only.

I thought I'd give you the info from the 2nd link first, in case it can save you from downloading something for one-time use.

I hope one of these ideas help. If not, I'll be happy to google for more.

OK finally, the IMGEDITOR program worked great.
Thanks.

(the "Run" method "couldn't find "winfile" - or something to that effect.

Oh well, since the GIMP proved a dead end for me, I'm still minus a button.

If GIMP didn't work for you and you are still looking for a good freeware alternative then check out PhotoFiltre. Version 6 is the freeware version which I use for all my stuff and they have 100's of free add-ons for the program.

Pastor, is the learning curve similar to GIMP? If so, I don't think I can handle it for now, since my on-screen time is limited due to EMF health issues. Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply...

You're welcome, monitorp. I'm glad it worked! emoticon

Pastor Rick, thank you for your input. Since I generally use the phrase "open source" in my query when I'm looking for a program to download, I'm not familiar with a lot of proprietary software out there.

Re: SOS - The GIMP did not un-install cleanly - print malfunctions


Minitorp - The basic learning curve for PhotoFiltre for me was 1 or 2 days to figure out the basics but I was just goofing around with it. I would put it somewhere between beginner and average for doing normal things but when all the add-on filters and things are added in it would be closer to advanced (as far as a learning curve goes)... IMHO it is the best freeware paint program out there for non-programmer types emoticon.

LeSigner Girl - You are more than welcome, I try to help where I can emoticon
