    Starting with Gimp 2.8 I've been having a lot of crashes. This was with the xquartz version. So I tried getting rid of that one and going for the new app. I downloaded the Snow Leopard one (my OS) but at random moments it still crashes.

    I still have 2.6 available...largely because I found the newer version kept losing or refusing to accept the brushes folder. I kept having to reinstall them.

    Does anyone know how I can stop this aggravating crashing? I used to love Gimp and I do like some of the new options. But I can hardly get anything done at this rate! :(

    OH and one further irony. When I want to quit, then it doesn't quit. Go figure.

    I'll just quote myself from your introduction thread ;)
    If you tried both, we have to wait for a competent Mac user to come by.

    Please try McGimp from <a class="postlink" href="http://www.partha.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.partha.com/</a>, see if it works any better.

    :( Thanks for the tip about McGimp. But sadly I only have a 32 bit Mac. I didn't foresee the abrupt change over to 64 bit everything right after I bought it.
