Gimp: select foreground colour

trade4us2, Mar 25, 11:19am
I want to select a colour from a colour chart, but can't find one.
No I don't want to pick a colour that is already in the picture, I want a NEW colour.
Is there not a menu where I can pick a colour, like any sensible editor that I used to have 20 years ago?

At the moment I have Gimp open with my picture. There is nothing else on the screen. How do I get all the tools and toolbars and whatnot on the screen? Why is that not the default?

windows
dockable dialogues
color

I guess its setup like this so you can customise the layout just the way you like it. Its a bit clunky but it works

Single window mode looks useful.
