GIMP User Manual

Download GIMP User Manual.pdf Introduction The GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. The GIMP is an application suitable for such tasks as retouching of photographs, composing and authoring images. Its capabilities as an image manipulation program make it a worthy competitor to other similar programs such as Adobe PHOTOSHOP or Corel PHOTOPAINT.

The biggest advantage of The GIMP is it’s free availability (e.g. from the Internet, packaged with various Linux distributions, etc). Even more importantly, it’s not freeware. The GIMP is an OSS (Open Source Software) program covered by the GPL license, which gives you the freedom to access and also to change the source code that makes up the program.

The GIMP is probably most known for its use on the GNU/Linux platform, but there are many platforms that GIMP can run on. GIMP is known to work on GNU/LINUX, MICROSOFT WINDOWS 95, 98, NT4 AND 2000, OPENBSD, NETBSD, FREEBSD, SOLARIS, SUNOS, AIX, HP-UX, TRU64, DIGITAL UNIX, OSF/1, IRIX, OS/2 and BEOS.

The GIMP help system will provide you with the necessary information on how to use all the functions GIMP provides. It will do so in a short effective way best described as an extended quick reference. The difference between the GIMP help system and a pure quick reference is that the help system will describe how to use the functions in a productive manner as well as their functionality.
