Yes, we all love that industry-standard CS or CC software made by corporate giants. But did you know that company (eBay forbids us to use their name) recently moved to a “subscription-based” software platform? This means that if you want to use their Cloud software, you’ll have to cough up $20-$50 per month FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE as long as you keep using it. If you stop paying, none of the files you saved or created can be opened until you start paying again!
Who has the money for that kind of nonsense?
Don’t get suckered into turning your software needs into just another expensive, monthly bill! It’s much easier to get this! It’s a fraction of the cost, and has most or nearly all the capabilities of “that other program”. You too can be a master photo editor, without breaking the bank!
What are the system requirements? Any version of Windows!
GIMP has very little system requirements. If your computer is able to display a desktop environment you can run GIMP.

There are several ways of selecting colors including palettes, color choosers and using an eyedropper tool to select a color on the canvas. The built-in color choosers include RGB/HSV selector or scales, water-color selector, CMYK selector and a color-wheel selector. Colors can also be selected using hexadecimal color codes as used in HTML color selection. GIMP has native support for indexed color and RGB color spaces; other color spaces are supported using decomposition where each channel of the new color space becomes a black and white image. CMYK, LAB and HSV (hue, saturation, value) are supported this way. color blending can be achieved using the Blend tool, by applying a gradient to the surface of an image and using GIMP’s color modes. Gradients are also integrated into tools such as the brush tool, when the user paints this way the output color slowly changes. There are a number of default gradients included with GIMP; a user can also create custom gradients with tools provided. Gradient plug-ins are also available.
Selections and paths:
GIMP selection tools include a rectangular and circular selection tool, free select tool, and fuzzy select tool (also known as magic wand). More advanced selection tools include the select by color tool for selecting contiguous regions of color and the scissors select tool, which creates selections semi-automatically between areas of highly contrasting colors. GIMP also supports a quick mask mode where a user can use a brush to paint the area of a selection. Visibly this looks like a red colored overlay being added or removed. The foreground select tool is an implementation of Simple Interactive Object Extraction (SIOX) a method used to perform the extraction of foreground elements, such as a person or a tree in focus. The Paths Tool allows a user to create vectors (also known as BÈzier curves). Users can use paths to create complex selections, including around natural curves. They can paint (or “stroke”) the paths with brushes, patterns, or various line styles. Users can name and save paths for reuse.
There are many tools that can be used for editing images in GIMP. The more common tools include a paint brush, pencil, airbrush, eraser and ink tools used to create new or blended pixels. The Bucket Fill tool can be used to fill a selection with a color or pattern. The Blend tool can be used to fill a selection with a color gradient. These color transitions can be applied to large regions or smaller custom path selections.
GIMP also provides “smart” tools that use a more complex algorithm to do things that otherwise would be time consuming or impossible. These include:
- Clone tool, which copies pixels using a brush
- Healing brush, which copies pixels from an area and corrects tone and color
- Perspective clone tool, which works like the clone tool but corrects for distance changes
- Blur and sharpen tool blurs and sharpens using a brush
- Smudge tool, which subtly smears a selection where it stands.
- Dodge and burn tool is a brush that makes target pixels lighter (dodges) or darker (burns)
- Animation showing three docked and tabbed dialogs: layers, channels, and paths.
- Layers, layer masks and channels
An image being edited in GIMP can consist of many layers in a stack. The user manual suggests that “A good way to visualize a GIMP image is as a stack of transparencies,” where in GIMP terminology, each transparency is a layer. Each layer in an image is made up of several channels. In an RGB image there are normally 3 or 4 channels, each consisting of a red, green and blue channel. color sublayers look like slightly different gray images, but when put together they make a complete image. The fourth channel that may be part of a layer is the alpha channel (or layer mask). This channel measures opacity where a whole or part of an image can be completely visible, partially visible or invisible. Each layer has a layer mode that can be set to change the colors in the image.
Text layers can be created using the text tool, allowing a user to write on an image. Text layers can be transformed in several ways, such as converting them to a path or selection.
Automation, scripts and plug-ins
GIMP has approximately 150 standard effects and filters, including Drop Shadow, Blur, Motion Blur and Noise.
GIMP operations can be automated with scripting languages. The Script-Fu is a Scheme-based language implemented using a TinyScheme interpreter built into GIMP.
GIMP can also be scripted in Perl, Python (Python-Fu), or Tcl, using interpreters external to GIMP. New features can be added to GIMP not only by changing program code (GIMP core), but also by creating plug-ins. These are external programs that are executed and controlled by the main GIMP program. MathMap is an example of a plug-in written in C.
There is support for several methods of sharpening and blurring images, including the blur and sharpen tool. The unsharp mask tool is used to sharpen an image selectively as it only sharpens areas of an image that are sufficiently detailed. The Unsharp Mask tool is considered to give more targeted results for photographs than a normal sharpening filter. The Selective Gaussian Blur tool works in a similar way, except it blurs areas of an image with little detail.
