How to install Gimp picture editing software?

Hello All,

I am relatively new to Linux but know how to access XFCE Settings and terminal and I have already customized my whole computer. I can post some screenshots if it helps.
I was wondering what the best version of GIMP was for Linpus Linux Lite and what the codes were. Could you help?

I don't know Linpus, but googling for "linpus gimp" it returns this as first hit. It tells you have the Synaptic package manager. So look for it in the menu and launch. In synaptic just search gimp and if it find it, check the little box near the package name and finally click on the "apply changes" button (or similar). Leave synaptic do its work and you've done.

You can use synaptic to install any software you want, provided there is a binary package in the linpus repository. This is the preferred way to install software, because it provides binary packages specifically built for your system. As a general rule, avoid to download packages from unknown sources, since they may slow down or compromise your system.
