Tips and Tricks for Using GIMP

Tips and Tricks for Using GIMP
By
GIMP

The GNU Image Manipulation Program, more commonly known by the acronym GIMP, is a free and powerful open-source graphics manipulation tool that can be used for everything from photo manipulation and clean up to digital painting. In development since 1995, GIMP is something of an open-source darling, sometimes being called the "free Photoshop." In this case, you don't short change yourself when you decide to go free and open source. Of course, as with any powerful tool, it takes time to learn its functions, and there are a lot of extra tools you can add to make it that much more powerful. Here are a few basics to keep in mind, one or two tutorials, and a grab bag of useful GIMP plugins to enhance an already excellent program.

    you can run red eye removal without selecting the eyes first. you may get mixed results depending on how much red is in the actual photo.

    fyi - if you use lasso or magic wand, you'll need to hold "shift" to select the second circle/section.
