The GNU Image Manipulation Program

The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a powerful image composition and editing program, which can be extremely useful for creating logos and other graphics for Web pages. The GIMP offers many of the tools and filters you would expect to find in similar commercial offerings and contains some interesting extras as well. The GIMP provides alarge image manipulation toolbox, including channel operations and layers, effects, subpixel imaging and antialiasing, and conversions- all including multilevel undo. The GIMP offers a scripting facility, but many of the included scripts rely on fonts that we cannot distribute. The GIMP FTP sitehas a package of fonts that you need to run the included scripts and that you can install yourself. Some of the fonts have unusual licensing requirements, but all the licenses are documented in the package. Get and if you like to do so. Alternatively, choose fonts that exist on your systembefore running the scripts.
