GIMP is a powerful distributed program for photo retouching, image composition, and image authoring. Comparisons to Photoshop abound simply because GIMP is its most laudable free alternative. Yet, putting aside any impersonations, GIMP truly stands on its own. Like any powerful program, GIMP takes time to master but once you familiarize yourself with its tools, simple tasks take mere minutes. GIMP is a smart solution to more expensive programs that may yield less favorable results.

GIMP at a Glance
It was easy to download and launch GIMP, which isn’t surprising because of its maturity. GIMP opens to a three-part UI. The left dialog contains GIMP’s tools, while the right dialog contains its Layers, Channels, Paths, and Brushes. The center holds GIMP’s main image editing area, which you can make full screen with docking dialogs. And you can add tabs to any dialog box to help you keep the all the features you need close at hand!

Product Details
GIMP is a versatile graphics tool and with some sophisticated built-in features such as:

==> Customizable Interface—GIMP allows you to customize its views and behaviors. For example, you can change widget theme colors, spacing, and icon sizes, plus custom toolbox sets.

==> Photo Enhancement—Digital photo imperfections can be easily compensated for using GIMP. Corrective mode in the transform tools helps you fix perspective distortion caused by lens tilt and a channel mixer affords you the flexibility you need with B&W photography.

==> Digital Retouching—GIMP is ideal for advanced photo retouching. For example, you can remove unwanted details with the clone tool or use the new healing tool to make quick fixes of minor issues like a botched brush stroke.

==> Hardware Support—GIMP includes support for various input devices, such as USB controllers, MIDI controllers, and pressure and tilt sensitive tablets. You can change brush properties while you paint and you can bind your favorite scripts to buttons to speed your workflow!

==> File Formats—GIMP lets you save images to nearly any imaginable file type. Thanks to a transparent virtual file system, it’s possible to load and save files to and from remote locations using FTP, HTTP, SMB (MS Windows), and SSH protocols. GIMP also transparently compresses files without extra steps to ZIP, GZ, or BZ2 extensions.
