Thanks Ryan and everyone, very impressed with all the help, to be  
honest the best support I have ever come across with anything, free or  
paid for, spot on. I wish I could help other in the forum but you guys  
seem way above what I know. The gimp program seems to work  
fantastically, much better than with the OX install package on the  
gimp page, that's just my opinion. So basically anytime I want to  
install a freeware or shareware product I do it through Macports 	sudo  
port install (name of product). Is there other stuff I can do with  

Kind regards john
