"Author: Tor Lillqvist
Program Type: Freeware

File Description:
The GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software suitable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring."

After first download of GIMP for Windows, it took two days and it was my default image editor and creator. Using GIMP together with Dogwaffle for some paint/draw effects and IrfanView just for snap viewing - give a freeware tool which maybe don't give all one may want - but most likely all you need..."

"The GIMP is an awesome program, but it was originally written only for Linux/Unix. My thanks goes out to Tor Lillqvist for taking the time to port it to Win32! This program does probably 99% of what Adobe Photoshop (Retail: something like US$600) does, but for free! Although slightly buggy, it works great."
