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

No other alternative to Photoshop can manage pictures as good as this app. Highly recommend. Just be patient!

Easy to use if you don't have PS.

I'm using this often for many photo/graphic related working. I like it a lot. Functionality gives slightly stiff feeling but it really doesn't matter as it provides all what i need!

Very stable and feature-rich image editing software. But Photoshop users be warned: GIMP is *not* a complete replacement for Photoshop. GIMP has fantastic features for editing, repairing and compositing images ~~ but it lags significantly behind Photoshop in features if you are doing design work. For example, adding a drop shadow to text (a trivial task in Photoshop) is a real slog in GIMP (and is done destructively). Probably for a design workflow you would want to look at other FOSS programs (Inkscape for example).

I'm not an artist but I do occasionally edit some pictures and enjoy doing it in GIMP :) I never tried photoshop, but for occasional use (like mine) paying PS license doesn't seem reasonable, GIMP suit's my case perfectly :)

I hate when people say "it's not Photoshop" ... of course it's not. I don't have to spend a bunch of money in order to use this, it's free. This is one of the best programs I have ever used that is free. I want to say thank you to the developers for all there work. I love it! Keep up the good work.

Muhteşem bir uygulama, geliştiricilerine çok teşekkür etmek istiyorum. Ben çok severek kullanıyorum ve Adope photoshopdan çok daha iyi bir uygulama. Çünkü ücretsiz ve gelişmir ve teknolojik bir yazılım. Tekrar teşekkürler

Great. Perfect for most picture things, but a bit too complicated for my liking, although my alternative (staying unnamed), is infamously bad.
