(Other stories by Yves Ceccone)
"The Gimp is a very powerful program to create and manipulate images. Some of its many tools allow you to make selections, and that's what this article is about. A selection is used to isolate a specific part of the image in order to change it, independent of the rest of the image. You can copy, move, replace or filter a selection, and you can also change its colors/contrast/brightness or even apply an effect to it. The list of possibilities is endless."
"When we speak of color corrections, it's important to be careful with the corrections you do. If you want a natural looking result (depending on your personal taste, of course), a nice correction should stay invisible."
"This article describes Gimp's selection tools and the different ways you can handle selections, and also gives a small introduction to some color correction tools."
