Unpacking a Gimp appimage
Using an older version of Linux with an equally older version of Gimp?  Want to update Gimp but find the alternative flatpak / snap versions limited?

At the moment there are excellent portable Gimp 'appimage' versions. Downloadable from the Assets folder here:

These work by making the file executable and running. More than adequate for occasional use but if you want to create a more permanent version,  the appimage can be unpacked.  That gives certain advantages, a little more flexibility.

That is the purpose of this demonstration video  duration 8 minutes. Shown in LinuxMint 19
