Marques is back this week with a short review of his favorite image manipulation program – Gimp. Gimp is free cross-platform software that can help you complete a variety of image tasks with ease.

Gimp is a very powerful piece of software. Marques uses this program for all of his graphics on his site instead of using the expensive Photoshop software. You can do anything with Gimp that you can do with paid alternatives.

It is a raster editor, which means that it performs operations directly on the pixels that make up the image, and not a vector editor. Other (proprietary) raster editors include Adobe Photoshop, Jasc Paintshop Pro and the humble Microsoft Paint. An alternative free editor is the KOffice project, Krita. Users wanting to edit photographs will certainly want a raster editor like GIMP. Graphic designers and illustrators may prefer a vector editor depending on their tastes.

Gimp is a fantastic alternative to Photoshop or other titles you hear people raving over all of the time. It’s great for everyone from beginners up to experts and will be able to handle any project you can dream up.

http://live.pirillo.com/ – Yes, Photoshop Elements works on Vista. It’s a good little program, with an ok user interface. There are also other good programs out there to quickly and easily edit your photographs… even some free ones!

Adobe Photoshop Elements combines power and simplicity so you can do more with your photos. If you’re looking for a user-friendly photo editing program that is great for most levels of computer users, this is an excellent choice. It has very little learning curve to it, unlike some of the more high end programs. Personally, I use PhotoFilter. It is for more advanced users, but it’s an awesome program. I’ve also used Picasa for many years. If all you need to do is basic cropping, maybe some red-eye reduction, then Picasa is definitely the way to go. Best of all… Picasa is free now that Google owns it. That’s right, you heard me. FREE.

There are many good free (and pay) photo editing software out there on the market. The chatters are throwing out programs like Gimp, Paint.net, and even Photoshop Proper. Decide what you need to do with your photos, and do your research before buying any picture editing software.
