An overview of this open-source graphics program, with a focus on photographic issues.

GIMP is the open source alternative to the proprietary Photoshop, and can do most of the same things while respecting your freedom. This show will kick off a new series of tutorials. As a note of caution, I am not an expert, I am just learning GIMP as I go. But I thought there was no harm in sharing my experiences with the HPR community.

the gimp

Great show! My wife and I are avid bird watchers and this year I added taking pictures of them (the birds) to the mix and I've wanted to process some of those photos and often thought of the gimp. Looking forward to more tutorials, if they're half as good as the libre office set they'll be awesome. Thanks for the show.

I'm glad it helped

I'm glad you liked it. I have one more already uploaded and in the queue, and I just finished writing a third one. So there is more to come.
