GNU Image Manipulation
Program - Gimp 2.6.2
easy-to-use, professional design tools that are comparable
to Photoshop - minus the hefty price tag. GIMP is free image
editing software that perfects photos and creates animated
images. One of the most powerful general-purpose image
editors around, GIMP can be used as a simple paint program,
an expert-quality photo retouching program, image format
converter and more.
Description From JCDiaz.Net
The volunteer developers
of The GIMP have been working to develop a user-friendly,
and freely distributed image editor. Although the separated
palette windows may disturb those users who are used to more
traditional layouts, your comfort level should grow
exponentially as you discover how pain-free the program is.
One of the most powerful general-purpose image editors
around, the upgrades make the GNU Image Manipulation
Program eminently comparable to Photoshop. Older
features include channels, layers and masks, filters and
effects, tabbed palettes, editable text tools, perspective
clone, improved printing, and color operations such as
levels. New improvements include GEGL integration for 32-bit
color support, dynamic brushes, and more options for the
free select tool. It even has regex-based pattern matching
for power users.
The application provides professional tools that can stand
against the big boys without the hefty price tag. Even the
installation process has gotten simpler, with no need to
download and install the GTX Runtime Environment separately.
Extremely powerful and easy to work with, GIMP is ideal
for both amateur and pro photographers, Web designers,
or anyone who wants to create and edit professional-quality
digital images on a budget.
