This is strange.
"yum install gimp" should install gimp and its deps, not gimp28.
"yum remove gimp28" should remove gimp28 and anyone depending on it, not 
gimp or "gimp stuff" (assuming you are not talking about "gimp stuff" 
from nux's repo that actually requires gimp 2.8).

What exactly is this gimp stuff you're talking about? Can you list those
