Hi @Gimp1717, and welcome!

I am not a McPerson, but
what Gimp version were you trying to use,
and from where did you obtain it?

Have fun!

gimp 2.10.34 I believe it’s the latest one. i downloaded it right from their website

It is my understanding that there are Intel-based Macs and Apple-M1-based Macs and you have to pick executables compiled for you particular architecture, in other words do you need the M1 edition or the Intel edition?
