The GNU Image Manipulation Program
  20 reviews

GIMP is an advanced picture editor. You can use it to edit, enhance, and retouch photos and scans, create drawings, and make your own images. It has a large collection of professional-level editing tools and filters, similar to the ones you might find in Photoshop. Numerous fine-control settings and features like layers, paths, masks, and scripting give you total control over your images.

Many image file formats are supported, including JPEG, Photoshop (.psd), and Paint Shop Pro (.psp) files. It can also be used to scan and print photos.

To open files remotely (like over HTTP), install the gvfs-backends package.

To use a MIDI device (like a musical keyboard) as an input controller in GIMP, install libasound2 and read the how-to at /usr/share/doc/gimp/README.MIDI

I love it. It's really easy to learn (better than photoshop).

I installed the flatpak version from the software manager, so i could get the Gimp 2.10.8 version, the latest. it took (737MB ) then after that, it worked flawlessly on my Linux Mint 19.1 64bit Tessa. my friend told me to use this as he has been using it to develop quality graphics

I've been using GIMP for several years now. Best one hands down. For very minor changes, I might use a less complicated program, but this does more, and as such, know that there are many functions other programs simply do not have.

It's great, i have used Gimp for years as main software. However i still feel it a bit stiff/uncomfortable in use. But how could i survive without it? :)

First thing to do with it is go to window -> single window mode, it's pretty good. It has a bunch of hiccups on supporting my drawing tablet's pressure sensitivity.
