Introduction
GNU Image Manipulation Program or GIMP lets you edit your photos and add effects. GIMP has plenty of features to impress it users and they are all free to use. The program can be used to perform many tasks such as image resizing, cropping, and red-eye removal.

Features
GIMP is such a powerful image editing software that it can be compared to Adobe Photoshop, but unlike Photoshop you don’t have to pay a price for full functionality. It has everything that an image editing software can ask for such as layers, filters, masks, additional effects, and cloning. There are also text tools, dynamic brushes, color operations, and options for improved printing.

GIMP is easy to install and simple to work with once you get a hang of the layout. It uses an advanced scripting interface which allows you to perform even the most complex image processing techniques. It is also compatible with extensions and plug-ins which makes accomplishment of tasks easier. GIMP is originally based on the Linux operating system but the same version is also compatible with Windows and Mac computers.

Conclusion
GIMP has features which are unmatchable with other photo-editing tools and it’s completely free to use. There is no trial period or license required to use all the features. This makes it highly recommended for both amateurs and professionals.
