GIMP Photo Editor: Fine-Tune Your Images Like Never Before

The features make GIMP more than an image editor

GNU Image Manipulation Program

The craze that started with Adobe Photoshop has now reached to GIMP- GNU Image Manipulation Program. The image editor is more impressive than its counterparts in a similar series. Before I start previewing GIMP, the popular open-source photo editor features, here are the pros and the cons of this photo editor.

The Pros

  • Features are easily expandable
  • Offers extended tools
  • Works with any image file

The Cons

  • A cluttered interface
  • Features are almost similar to Adobe Photoshop
  • The learning curve is a little tricky

Who doesn’t like to fine-tuning their images and the perfect way for a lot of users is to opt for popular image editing tools. While the count of these offerings is continuing excessively, we are here to talk specifically about GIMP or (the GNU Image Manipulation Program). The free alternative to Adobe Photoshop is no less than its counterparts owing to the set of features it offers to the users.

The professional is there for the users for adding the perfect shades of color, texture, and highlights in the image. It is a tool that you can use for developing your photos from scratch. Use the tool for professional quality effect and you will have a whole new set of images to flaunt before others.

GIMP has the following unique set of features:

  • It offers photoshop like interface
  • There are neither ads nor limitations
  • It has impressive layers and a set of highly customizable brushes
  • The tool offers automatic image enhancement tools
  • GIMP supports a number of plugins (either pre-installed or available to download separately)
  • There is an active community of contributors that provides extended support to the tool

Having the support of an ever-active community means the bugs in GIMP are resolved immediately in case they ever appear. All this support makes this tool much more prominent from the commercially available photo-editing tools in the market.   

This impressive photo-editing tool (GIMP) works perfectly well with Windows, Mac, and Linux. Version 2.8 is available and you can download GIMP here.

Talking about the user interface of GIMP, it is far impressive than any other photo-editing tool available to download for free. The tool has an array of features to retouch your photos the way you like it. There are bezier curves, an animation package, layer masks, and filters that add more prominence to the overall offerings.

The icing on the cake is you can use GIMP, the photo-editing tool with a number of third-party plugins. The highly customizable GIMP interface can easily be integrated with a number of plugins and there are tutorials that come handy when using this photo-editing tool for the very first time. These tutorials also help you to get information on how to use a new tool.

More About The Latest Version of GIMP

The latest version has introduced an all-new single-window mode. There are tools to collect several layers together to make them a group. And that makes GIMP an innovative offering for using even for complex work. Brush dynamics engine in GIMP has innovative features too. It has been improved from previous offerings and that is an element to consider while utilizing this innovative offering.

Considering all the innovative GIMP elements, I can easily bet on its features against even the most popular photo-editing applications. Therefore, all the photo-editing lovers can give this tool a real try.
