• I cannot get the Gimp to be accepted on my Mac

    From steveburrichter@gmail.com@21:1/5 to All on Mon Jan 16 07:26:44 2017
    I cannot get the Gimp program to be accepted on my iMac. I have downloaded it and put it into the applications folder. However, when I click on it to open the program, I get the following error message:

    “GIMP” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.
    Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the App Store and identified developers.

    Unfortunately, the only options to open programs in settings are "the App Store and identified developers."

    I enjoyed using this program for work related projects before I retired about 10 years ago, and I would like to use it now. Apparently, I need some help to get it to work on my iMac. Can you help me?

    Thanks for answering this question,

    Steve

    Thanks for answering this question,

    Instead of starting from the Launchpad or Dock, use Finder to go to the /Applications folder, Ctrl-click (or right-click) the GIMP icon, and
    select Open. (Don’t try to simplify that by double-clicking.) You will
    get the option to enable GIMP even though it is not properly tagged. You
    only have to do this once.

    This applies to all software not obtained from the App Store or
    otherwise vetted by Apple.

    So the short answer is
    ctrl-click ->Open ->Open.
    which creates an exception for that app.
