GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages.

In our opinion the GIMP is as good as professional proprietary software costing nearly $1000.

The GIMP is FREE. Download it here.
