Editors' Review

The volunteer developers of The GIMP have been working hard to develop a polished, user-friendly, and freely distributed image editor. This application caught our attention--and hearts--as one of the most powerful general-purpose image editors around. The application's features include channels; layers and masks; filters and effects; tabbed palettes; editable text tools; and color operations such as levels. The application provides professional tools that can stand against the big boys without the hefty price tag. The only downside to this otherwise flawless program is the installation process. As it stands now, you have to install the GTX Runtime Environment and The GIMP separately. Once installed, though, the program is extremely powerful and easy to work with. The GIMP is ideal for amateur photographers, Web designers, and anyone who wants to create and edit professional-quality digital images on a budget.

    "Fantastic. But I found free Photoshop here:"

    October 15, 2014   |   By dess71

    Version: GIMP 2.8.14


    I like the software GIMP which will do most of the things Photoshop does. But in my opinion it is not updated frequently as it should.


    Needs improvement on interface and features.


    In general this is too much for free but Adobe Photoshop also has free version which works perfect:
