"A Terrific Photo Editing Program"
Provides Multiple Tools for editing your photos
You can't beat the cost - FREE!!!
Runs well on Windows 7
Most all editing functions perform very quickly
There is a learning curve - no doubt!
You'll need to invest some time to use all of the features.
I've been using GIMP for a few years now, and the only real drawback to this program is the time it takes to learn all of the features available. If you're willing to spend some time reading and practicing the different functions and features in this program you can do just about anything with it.
For a FREE program, I don't think there's anything out there that can touch it. Just remember that your going to have to invest some time if you want to get the full capabilities of this software to work well for you.
