LinuxFocus.org: Gimp’s tools: selection and color correction

“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.
