So i was using gimp and said "Man, gimps slow." so i googled how to uninstall plugins because i installed a pack. I found no answer...

So stupid me deletes the plugin folder not only containing plugins, but GIMP default plugins

and now i cant export.

I reinstalled gimp i tried googling Gimp File Extension Plugin but no luck.

I spent 1 hour fixing this and i'm get very upset.

It's not even my fault (kinda). No one told me how to delete plugins so i just had to go on my own.

So i need help please! As i'm in a shithole right now. \ D:< /

Delete gimp and move on?

But seriously you should be good to go if you reinstall gimp. I have no idea why that wouldn't fix it.

Just to cover all bases, you're sure it's not a problem like you don't have permission to write to the folder you're trying to save to?

I just checked my users/admin/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins folder and it's empty. I can give you a copy of my .gimp-2.8 folder, if you think that would help.

Nope, because i was able to delete the GIMP 2 folder in Program Files.
