    You must have downloaded the wrong one. Try this one: http://gimp-app.sourceforge.net/ Or you could go with GIMPshop: http://www.gimpshop.net/ GIMPshop is just a nicer GUI of GIMP. You will need X11 installed to run it. You will also need the BSD subsystem, you can install both those things from your OS X install disks. But there is a good chance they are already installed.

    The X11 software on apples website is for pre 10.4 so if you have Tiger you need to install X11 from the OSX install discs.

    Barring finding your Tiger install discs or going out and buying another copy I think your kind of stuck as I have yet to hear of a place to download X11 for Tiger. You could always try another image editing program. Seashore is pretty good, it doesn't have as many features/plugins as Gimp, but it is based on Gimp and is free as well, and it doesn't need X11 to run.
