Photo Editing for Free

GNU Image Manipulation Program or GIMP as it is called is a free software for image editing. If you are familiar with Adobe Photoshop then you will feel right at home with GIMP. Adobe Photoshop is great photo editing software, but it comes with a hefty price. The basic version "Elements" costs around $90.00 GIMP_Iconand the full version starts around $700.00.

GIMP can do pretty much anything Photoshop can do. You can even get a version called GIMPshop that looks and works like Photoshop. I can't say enough good things about it. I have been using GIMP for all of my photo editing for years. I use it mostly to crop, resize, straighten lines, and adjust colors on my photographs.

You can find out more information at their official web site http://www.gimp.org/ . From the download section you can get the version of GIMP that is right for you. You will also find some really good tutorials for beginners and experts in the documentation section. Try it out and see what you think, after all it's free!

Gimp is awesome. I'm almost useless when it comes to graphic design, but I somehow muddle through Gimp. It's WAY better than any other free product (or included product MS PAINT).
