I believe you go about it this way:

Open up a terminal

sudo apt-get update
apt-get install gimp

If you don't have have synaptic installed - I would just install that first and use synaptic.

sudo apt-get update
apt-get install synaptic

That is pretty much it.

The freespire forum has a lot of good advice a well.
