    I notice that it says it is Vista compatible, but is anyone using it with Win 7 32 bit?

    According to this site, from first hand experience of installing and using the program, Gimp 2.6.6 is compatable with both 32 and 64 bit versions.

    After looking around I found this site http://gimp.en.softonic.com/ which confirms it is Windows 7 compatible. So problem solved

    Thank you very much~! I appreciate the link to that site.
    It saves me from wondering about other compatible 7 programs

    Thanks I'll check it out!~!~!~ I've used Picasa, Irfanview and Lview in the past. There are a couple of online editors I've used to experiment with so this also looks like a neat program.

    Yes! Gimp does run in the 64-bit version of Home Premium! I use GIMP as my main photo editor. It installs under the X86 architecture. There are no compatibility issues except a first start up crash that didn't happen again after I restarted the application a second time. If you can get along without Photoshop this is the program to run for fixing up digital and scanned images. I am running Gimp 2.67 in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    I'll concur, GIMP works well with W7 64 bit.

    It's a beast of a program, very potent photo tools. But it's user interface leaves MUCH to be desired.
