GIMP Editor's Review

GIMP was a piece of software I wasn't completely sure about when I first downloaded it, as first of all it has one of the strangest names for a piece of software ever, as I'm sure if you're on this page you will understand. However, GIMP actually turns out to stand for GNU Image Manipulation Software, meaning the software is a free alternative and rival to photo shop and to a far lesser degree a big upgrade on MS paint. The second confusing thing that you will notice upon downloading and opening GIMP, is the lack of instruction or intuitive interface, being another piece of bare bones software, being a tiny box with two massive boxes on each side of it. This makes getting started with GIMP fairly difficult.

If you want to learn how to use GIMP, this review is probably not your best place to start, rather try searching the internet for a full tutorial of the software. However, I will give you the basics on how to get started with GIMP and on the way to making your first real project. First of all, if you plan to load an image click file and open it up, and then work from there. This will give you a great variety of features to edit and transform your original image into a new, polished one.

If you want to start from scratch, for graphic design or any other purpose where you intend to start without anything to work on, press new image, which will give you a variety of choices of gradients, shading and patterns to use as a starting point. If you want a basic background, I'd recommend just starting with a simple two colour gradient or just a white background. After you've created the background, there Is a layer option similar to photo shop which will allow you to place some images over other for an easy way to clip images without going through a lot of effort to do it all on the same layer, as you would do in a traditional image manipulation program.

GIMP is actually a really amazing piece of freeware, and is another one that I would add to my list of must download freeware. That being said, the program, although incredibly functional is really difficult to get a grasp on how to work the software, so it must be considered that this software is probably only good for advanced users. If you can or want to learn how to use new software, this is a great piece of free ware you should download just on the off chance you ever need an image manipulation program.



GIMP Publisher's Description

But calling GIMP an image editor is like calling the sleek, limited edition, 268mph Bugatti Veyron Super Sport a nice car. It doesn’t even scratch the surface.

For this GIMP download is an incredible piece of software - versatile, powerful and free. It’s the answer to your image editing needs, especially if youve ever peeked at the price of Adobe Photoshop and gulped how much?

If you didn’t know (or guess), GIMP is an acronym. It stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program, a title that highlights the program’s origins as a Linux image editor.

But, as weve pointed out, GIMP is much more than a simple image editor. Using it simply for red-eye removal and image resizing would be as much of a crime as using the aforementioned Bugatti supercar to do your weekly shopping.

GIMP is a complex beast, a well-tooled, free alternative to the power of Photoshop that comes with various professional features for pictures and photos.

The selection and montage techniques are particularly solid and it offers plenty of selection tools. The retouching and contrast correction fulfil most user demands too. In just a few steps you can crop images, edit cuttings, colourize images, reduce CCD noise and decrease problem contrast.

While it certainly has the basic image editing features youd expect, GIMP also caters for expert-level users, yet we doubt that they know every nook and cranny or every function and option.

A quick look at the GIMPs tutorials page gives you a glimpse of what the software is capable of - layer masks, bezier curves and gradients, adding film grain or watercolour effects to images, making custom brushes, and using GAP (the GIMP Animation Package).

Of course, for many years GIMP had a reputation for being difficult to use. It has previously been an irritation for Windows users in that it completely ignored various Windows UI conventions.
