Gimp Review

GIMP is a cross-platform image editor available for Linux, MacOS, Windows and other operating systems. It is a free open source software that allows you to further improve your productivity thanks to many customization options and third-party plug-ins. Its extraordinary editing features allow you to retouch photos or create images from scratch. Includes cropping, automatic image optimization tools, color adjustment tools, customizable brushes and more. For experienced users there are other more advanced features like filters, Bezier curves, layer masks and an animation package.


This video tutorial will show us how to use this program to retouch your photos:


  • Customizable interface: offers a fantastic full-screen mode that allows you not only to preview your illustrations but also to make changes while using most screen tools
  • Photo enhancement: correct the distortion caused by the inclination of the lens, cancel “bullseye” distortion, add filters for black and white photos.
  • Digital retouch: remove unnecessary details with the clone tool or easily retouch small areas
  • File formats: the supported file formats range from JPEG (JFIF), GIF, PNG, TIFF, to special formats such as multi-resolution and multi-color-depth Windows icon files. Thanks to the transparent virtual file system, it is possible to upload and save files from remote locations using protocols such as FTP, HTTP or even SMB (MS Windows shares) and SFTP / SSH.


GIMP is a free open source image editing program. The software includes a variety of professional features that can really compete with Adobe Photoshop. Customizable and easy to use, this program will certainly meet all your needs.

  1. Frequently doesn’t respond. Lacks an autosave. I lost HOURS of work because the app crashed. I understand that I should save regularly, but what kind of terrible application has no autosave? I recommend if you cannot afford Photoshop; otherwise, leave this dungheap alone.

  2. I use Gimp for drawing, edits, photo touch ups. The pros are: It’s free and it does its best to emulate photoshop. Though it can be very useful, it is the most inconvienient photo editor I’ve used. Specifically, it glitches frequently (the brush may only draw in grays when it is supposed to be registering color) and it is super fucking easy to delete your tool box – and even if you go to prefferences, go to window management, and reset the damn windows to their pre-sets (which is supposed to bring the toolbox back) it doesn’t! I’ve had to delete Gimp, and re-download the damn thing to fix my problem twice.

    Personally, I can’t afford photoshop, so I use this. If you can afford photoshop, get photoshop and avoid Gimp. If you can’t this is your one of your best options, its free and it can be a solid (if messy) tool for drawing/photo editing.
