I am just begining to use GIMP.
My computer is old and does not have enough room for anymore programs. It does not have enough room on it for me to download the regular version of GIMP.
I will be replacing the computer in a few months.
For now I downloaded GIMP portable onto a flash drive and have been using that.
Would it better to download the regular version of GIMP to an external hard drive so I can use it?

Use an on line editor, nothing to download or install.
You can also try librekey and mobileapps, they are free download applications suite specifically for USB drives, and both offer the mobile version of GIMP.
I am going to guess that if your computer is so old that there is insufficient space on the internal HDD to install GIMP, then it might be doubtful if it has sufficient RAM (and/or virtual RAM) to efficiently run the program.
If replacing it is not imminent and if you are up for a bit of housekeeping, you could try moving all of your data from C: to an external HDD, uninstalling any software that you do not regularly use and seeing if that releases enough space on C: to both install and run the program.
