GNU Image Manipulation Program

The GNU Image Manipulation Program is powerful image editing program, and commonly used for photo retouching, image composition, and general graphic design work.

It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc. GIMP also comes with extensive documentation for both users and programmers, including a manual, tutorials, examples of various features, links to other GIMP-related sites, and an extensive list of plug-ins.
