A court recently ruled that downloaded music cannot be legally re-sold online, whereas physical media can still be sold legally?.    Double standards or safeguarding the music industry?   VOTE NOW

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

I've used photoshop before, probably not to it's full potential, but at one point most of our images and logo's were made using that application - more recently we've been looking for an alternative program for images and GIMP fit's the bill perfectly. We can still open all of our PSD files (PhotoShop files) and edit them using GIMP and the tools work on a similar basis. It will take a little time to work our way around the new interface in GIMP but from what I've seen so far, GIMP is every bit as versatile and powerful as PhotoShop - to say it's free is staggering!. Normally you could expect to pay anything from a few hundred quid upwards for an application as powerful as this .... one word .... WOW!!

    I used to use Gimp with 2 monitors; picture on one, tools on the other. The single window in 2.8 has been requested for years, and it's finally here. Now that I have a single widescreen monitor, it might work; we'll see. As for the other improvements, huzzah! If I was a pro artist (and somebody else was paying the bill) I might opt for Photoshop; but Gimp is perfect for the frugal. And it's a lot of fun. OK, it has a steep learning curve, and the photo-cropping n00b would be better off with one of the many other lightweight picture-taking apps, or online tools.
      If anyone receives an error message "The procedure entry point gzdirect could not be located in the dynamic link library zlib1.dll".

      The fix is:--
      Copy zlib1.dll from "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin\" and place it in C:\Program Files\GIMP2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins"
      and the program starts loading the files, then starts with no problems.

      Thanks to JoninOz for this tip :)
