Review: GIMP 2.6.7

Filed under
GIMP

You don’t need to be a tech wiz or a graphics expert to know, when it comes to image manipulation, Adobe Photoshop monopolizes the market. But, there is one down side to the famous program, and that is it’s well known price tag. Most people can’t afford spending £630, and especially not in these economic times. So, we look to freeware for the answer.

I am a graphic enthusiast and have been using the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) for just under a year now and have seen two updates, 2.6.7 being the latest stable release, and I have been very impressed.

The GIMP has a fairly clean interface and is highly customizable with themes freely available to download and install. One of the great things I have found is that almost any Photoshop brush can be fairly easily imported into the program without any added features.

Here's some more details on this in-kernel virtual machine. Alexei Starovoitov presented at last month's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Santa Rosa about BPF as an in-kernel virtual machine.
