GIMP is a popular open-source image editor for Mac, Windows, and Linux that has slowly evolved to become a credible free alternative to programs like Adobe Photoshop. In this course, Justin Seeley shows how to translate basic image editing techniques to GIMP, such as cropping and resizing, selecting and masking, improving tone and contrast, and dedicates other chapters to retouching with the cloning and healing tools, creating illustrative effects with the paint and ink brushes, and working with text and paths. The final sections show you how to save time by automating tasks with macros and batch processing and how to print and save your work.
