Review your version, and download from secure sites: http://gimp.org/

Check the root for the new plugins:
Default:
C:\Program_Files\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins

User:
C:\Documents and Settings\USER\.gimp-2.6\plug-ins

I hope help you (rated this) Good luck.

Save GIMP image as jpg


Press CTRL+E, type in the file name you want and add the '.jpg' or '.jpeg' extension to the end, deleting any other file extensions. Then navigate to where you want to save it and hit Export. From there, its just an issue of importing the .jpg image from wherever you saved it, into Publisher.

Need help with missing libgimpui-2.0-0.dll file


The problem is you didn't completely uninstall Gimp before you installed it again so the Gimp install file got confused when it found some residual files or registry keys from a previous install and thus it skipped installing some files (libgimpui-2.0-0.dll was one of them for sure) You need to completely uninstall Gimp before you can install it again properly. Get a copy of Revo uninstaller from the link below and use it to uninstall Gimp for you. You should be good to go after that.

There are several image types that you can try to save it as. I would suggest trying bitmap but be sure to select the highest level of quality and lowest compression. This will result in a large file size however so it may become difficult to send in email or post on facebook. As far as file size goes JPG is your best option but it does not support transparency so you will have to either be sure to not have transparency or be ok with it being black when you save it. When you save as a JPG you need to again be sure to increase quality to the highest level and compression to the lowest.

Gimp install


Hi there. Common error. Just uninstall GIMP, re-boot and then reinstall only from www.gimp.com (nowhere else). That should do it.
