GIMP GNU Image Manipulation Program Features

  • Allows you to customize the view and behavior the way you like it. Starting from the widget theme, allowing you to change colors, widget spacing and icon sizes to custom tool sets in the toolbox
  • Features a great full-screen mode allowing you to not only preview your artwork but also do editing work while using the most of your screen estate
  • Numerous digital photo imperfections can be easily compensated for using GIMP
  • The included channel mixer gives you the flexibility and power to get your B/W photography stand out the way you need
  • Ideal for advanced photo retouching techniques. Get rid of unneeded details using the clone tool, or touch up minor details easily with the new healing tool. With the perspective clone tool, it’s not difficult to clone objects with perspective in mind just as easily as with the orthogonal clone
  • Includes a very unique support for various input devices out of the box. Pressure and tilt sensitive tablets, but also a wide range of USB or MIDI controllers
  • Supports a wide range of file formats from the common likes of JPEG (JFIF), GIF, PNG, TIFF, PSD, BMP to special use formats such as the multi-resolution and multi-color-depth Windows icon files
  • It is possible to load and save files to from remote locations using protocols such as FTP, HTTP or even SMB (MS Windows shares) and SFTP/SSH
  • To save disk space, any format can be saved with an archive extension such as ZIP, GZ or BZ2 and GIMP will transparently compress the file without you needing to do any extra steps.
  • Supports the following Operating Systems
    • GNU/Linux
    • Microsoft Windows (XP SP3, Vista, 7, 8)
