I have been attempting to use Gimp but usually have to quit frustrated. Using Gimp tutorials do not help because the steps include opening up options I simply don't have.
For example, trying to align text. The tutorial tells me to click Align in the toolbox and another box is supposed to appear with the title Toolbox Options. that dialog box never appears. Tutorials using the toolbox are useless, because what is shown is not what happens.
Is there a tutorial that shows how to use Gimp without the toolbox?
