  22. 3. Open the extracted gimp-gap-2.6.0-64bits folder. Open gimp-gap-2.6.0-64bits. Open plug-ins. Select all of these files. Right click them and click "Copy."

  25. Notes: This plug-ins folder is not the same folder found through Program Files. Do not right click and paste your coped files into the "lib" and "share" folders. They should be pasted under these folders, not in them.

  27. 5. Open GIMP. (Restart GIMP if it was open during GAPs installation.) In the Menu bar, between "Filters" and "Windows", check if "Video" is listed. If it is, you've successfully installed GAP. If not, then I don't know what to do because this is how I did it and I think I would otherwise be fucked. Happy GIMPing!
