I hate to disagree with you, there are GIMP packages which include GTK and install it before The GIMP as such is installed, much like GAIM packages which include the GTK runtime or not, and you download accordingly.

Can you provide a link?

Two .exe to run is easy enough: http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html

Yep, as I mentioned earlier, the GTK+2 runtime & actual GIMP installer. I'm not saying it's rocket science, but it is complicated by involving two separate packages *plus* all of the jargon written on the page. It *could* be easier.

I recently introduced GIMP on Windows to a complete microserf (does not know anything beside Visual Studio and is a newbie in using graphic software) who had no problem installing and learning it (with some lessons from http://gug.sunsite.dk/?page=tutorials), she even managed to produce a decent looking website with GIMP made graphics.

Again though, a technical user leading a more non-technical user....
