    Hello,
    I'm new to Mac, so please be patient with me.

    I have OSX 10.4.11 Tiger. I installed GimpShop, which installed well except for one thing. To use it, I need to create a folder in my user folder named .gimp-2.2

    It seems I cannot create a folder with a dot as the first letter.

    Anyone know how to fix this? Or does anyone know of a free graphics program that will work with this OS? Don't say Gimp, already tried that...didn't work, even the older version.

    I'm sorry, but I'm just two days new to Mac. How do I get to Terminal?

    TIA

    While knowing where everything is might be useful, even I use Spotlight. Otherwise a /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app is fine too.

    I'm surprised GimpShop didn't just create the directory in your home folder. It did for me.
