GIMP can be used for "photo retouching, image composition and image authoring," as the website explains. In addition, GIMP is built on the philosophy of Free Software, which the GNU project describes in the following:
- "The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0).
- The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
- The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).
- The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source code is a precondition for this."
If you're a Windows user in computerCENTRAL looking for a program to edit your images, the GIMP is your go-to application. Documentation is also available in Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Korean, Norwegian, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.
