Gimp startup too slow for you? Here are 10 Tips to speed it up!

  1. Install Linux and run it there - told to run much smoother there
  2. Install more RAM on your machine
  3. Delete c:\Documents and Settings\\.fonts.cache-1 file - it causes another slow start when Gimp recreated it, then everything is faster.
  4. Uninstall un-needed brushes/fonts/etc
  5. Put gimp in your trusted applications under your virus scanner
  6. Change the short cut to ...gimp.exe -d -s [s does not load the splash screen - d does not load 'data' : font]
  7. Store brushes and such in a user folder rather than the programs folder
  8. Change the cache config option here: Toolbox> / Preferences / Environment / Resource Consumption
  9. Rename the plugins folder
  10. Access the space time continuum and hold it hostage

  1. Running from an SSD, but still slow on fonts, so decided to disable windows font cache service. After that, fast startup.
