hey pete!..  will make a few suggestions for you which i hope will help...

think about how long you used "paintshop pro" or whatever software you were
using before "as-is".. try and use the GIMP "as-is" for a while, and get
used to it... a few weeks or months even..

try asking more specific support venues, such as a gimp irc channel or mailing list ..also, if you are having issues with
something at a site such as devian art, ask them.. we dont have anything to
do with the creation or support of 3rd party software at external sites,
unless one of the list volunteers says they are a part of the 3rd party..

cheers and good luck.. and keep in mind, the GIMP is free.. free of cost,
and free as in open.. *anyone* can create a brush or an add-on or an extra
package, or give a suggestion about what cool things it can do. that doesnt
mean its true, or that the add-on works, or is actually available.. nor is
anyone guaranteeing anything in the way of its availability or stability...
stick with stock as much as you can in the beginning
