I use Gimp regularly with no problems, and Getpaint is a well known bitmap editor also. I know nothing about Blackmagic.

Help Requests: If there is no reply after 3 days I remove the thread from my answer list. For further help PM me.

Davinci Resolve is professional video editing software. Gimp and GetPaint are image editing software. I have no experience with them but if you are looking for free video editing software then look at OpenShot or Lightworks

GIMP is definitely safe, make sure to get it from the GIMP website though and check the sha256 (or other) hash afterwards to make sure you've downloaded the right file.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
