GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program)

gimp logiciel - tutoriel, loisirs créatifs, activités manuelles

Longing for Adobe Photoshop but don't have the money to buy it? Consider GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) instead. This software is a subsidiary of GNU, an operating system that's used to provide free alternatives to many current computer programs. GIMP has all of the same basic photo editing capabilities as Photoshop (cropping, resizing, layers, curves, intelligent selection tools, etc.) and, once learned, can turn out stylish results for photo retouching and image composition. Although it's not quite up to Photoshop's caliber in all areas, it works well for most amateur photographers who want to give a professional edge to their pictures.
