Christina Haralanova | 20 July 2006

Linuxchix have published online a GIMP online course, aimed at people with interest in image processing, but not much experience with actual image editing.

GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. Even if it is created as Free Software, GIMP works on many operating systems, in many languages.

The main topics were"

- Getting Raw Material: Some Sources for Images
