Re: [Gimp-user] What have I installed?

Look at the name of the .dmg file you downloaded. It will tell you what version: e.g., 
gimp-2.8.20-x86_64.dmg. The last two digits after the underscore and before the extension are the bit version.

The GIMP web site suggests that either 32 or 64 bit software will be installed depending on the MacOS of 
the machine.

Is there any way of finding out which version has actually been installed? Either 32 or 64 bit.


Some system utility can tell you the "bitness" of the Gimp executable. On Linux this would be the "file" 

file /usr/bin/gimp-2.8
/usr/bin/gimp-2.8: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter 
/lib64/, for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=0d7d1efafc28d041a904a773cf3cb9e1b2532743, 

"file" is part of Unix since 1973 so it possibly exists on OSX.
