Additional information: 

The installer installs the appropriate version: either 32-bit or 64-bit versions. The help file is a separate installer on the Gimp download page. It is currently 24.2 MB. It didn't work on my system which runs Windows 7 64-bit. There is a Windows installer for the GIMP extensions pack for Windows which allows you to choose which plug-ins, scripts, brushes, patterns, etc. that you want to install.

64 Bit compatibility: 

32 and 64 bit versions available

Best Free Digital Image Editor - Advanced


Has lots of advanced features and can do almost everything the Photoshop can do; Extensible with many add-ons; Now allows all tool windows to dock within the main window.


Has a steep learning curve but will not be too hard if you have used any of the image editors in the mid-level or suites classes.

Runs as a stand-alone program on a user's computer
