I use GIMP as my image manipulator.
It was working fine earlier, but now, I'll open something or start a new project, go look at something, go back to GIMP, and all of a sudden theres an older project there. :S

Example today I had made a new msn display picture for my friend Amber.
After, I made another one for me, and then went out for a walk, came back, and then all of a sudden Amber's was still there.
And just now, I went to make one for my friend Brittany, then went to go and get the other picture she wanted on it, and the animation i used for my picture all of a sudden opened, and the one i started for Brittany was gone.

Any reason as to why this may be?
And how would I go about fixing it?
I've tried closing and re-opening GIMP, but thats done nothing and I wasn't even actually on my computer before I left.

Are you using Gimp 2.6.10 stable version.

You could run through Edit / Preferences to check the program is set to work as you require.

If you think the program has become unstable, perhaps uninstalling / reinstalling may be appropriate.

I'm just a casual user - regular users might be able to identify the problem and assist.

Usually it doesn't open up previously worked on projects, in fact I don't think I know of an option that lets you do that really unless its an old version.

Like really old version. In fact, what version are you using?
