5.4.  Open Location

Revision History
Revision $Revision: 1.7 $ 2006-07-27 scb

The Open Location dialog lets you load an image from a network location, specified by a URI, in any of the formats that GIMP supports, or from a path to your hard disk or any drive. The default directory name is /home/<username>/ on Linux and C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\My Images\ on Windows, which is used as the base of the relative address. You can also enter an absolute path.

[Tip] Tip

When you are visiting an Internet site, you can right-click on an image and choose “Copy link address” in the drop-down menu. Then paste it in the “Open Location” dialog to open it in GIMP.
