This is the first splash screen I've made in a long time. Man, I need to get back to making them. They're so much fun to do, plus it's neat to see them show up when GIMP opens.
Feel free to use if you would like. To do so, look in your GIMP images folder (C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.40\share\gimp\2.0\images) and you'll see the original splash screen called "gimp-splash". Rename that file so you don't lose it, and then add my splash screen to that folder. Restart GIMP. You should now see it when GIMP fires up.
If you do use the splash screen, please give me a fave or, at the very least, a comment that you've used it. That would be greatly appreciated.
