Morning all. For those of you who like to play with photo manipulation, you may well have come across Gimp. If you haven’t, that might be because you can afford Photoshop and it’s updates and that’s fine – but if not I suggest you take a look. I suggest you go straight to the site rather than searching for gimp which could return some surprising results.
I’ve used Gimp for years and it is very powerful but updates seem to be few and far between so I was delighted this morning while perusing Google+ to come across this link for G’MIC which is trivial to install and adds a whole boatload of filters to Gimp. I did note that the 3D options killed Gimp but the rest seem fine and there are SO MANY options, enough to keep the budding artist busy for hours if not days.
