When opening more than two images in GIMP version 2.8.14 system gets hanged. Even if I change the preference folder path the problem persists. How can I keep the system from hanging?

  • GIMP is not GIS software, this question might be more suitable for a different community. Your problem is impossible to debug without lots of more information (how big are the images, what specs does your computer have, what operating system etc). – bugmenot123 Feb 9 '16 at 12:36
  • Have you tried maybe using inkscape? I much prefer it to gimp for creating maps – ed.hank Feb 9 '16 at 12:48
