When I open Gimp 2.6 all I get is the toolbox. I cannot find a way to load the image I want to work with. Can you help?

The Gimp layout is an acquired taste. Everything floats around like independent applications. The main window probably lies lurking behind some other window. My experience is that it is easier to work with gimp on an empty desktop. If you use the Alt-Tab (The Task Switcher in XP or flip in Vista) the main window should turn up.

In order to open your photos, click the toolbox, press Ctrl + O key combination, and use the Open Image window to load your files:

Alternatively, you can simply drag and drop the image you want to load over the toolbox. If you have problems, remove the program from your PC (Control Panel > Uninstall a program) and download and install its updated version.
