Product Description:

Image editing is a crucial element in the photographic workflow. Image editing tools, most notably Photoshop, are usually sophisticated and deep applications, and are fairly expensive. The only open source tool in this market is the GIMP, which has developed into a powerful, multiplatform system running on Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.

GIMP 2.8 for Photographers is a beginner's guide to the only open source image editing tool that provides a no-cost alternative to expensive programs such as Photoshop. Topics include the new user interface and tools, the basics of image editing and simple adjustments, advanced techniques using layers and masks, developing RAW images, working with the improved text tool, and preparing high-quality black-and-white images. The most important editing functions are presented in individual, easy-to-follow workshops. A bonus section on the included DVD describes special techniques for web graphics.

GIMP 2.8 for Photographers has evolved from classroom materials that the author developed and taught in courses and workshops on image editing with the GIMP.

How to GIMP
 
Product Description:
Whether you're frustrated with technical jargon, confused by GIMP's layout or tools, or you just can't wrap your head around free GIMP tutorials, How to GIMP will help you learn GIMP without the headache.

Read it on your Kindle or on your computer and devices using a Kindle App. Though it is possible to read the book on black and white only versions of Kindle, we recommend reading it with a device that supports color images, or on your desktop with a Kindle App.

Start at the very beginning, setting up GIMP's interface to make it simple, and easy to use. Then, practice GIMP's basics like cropping pictures, and adjusting colors. After that, you'll graduate to GIMP's more advanced tools like Layers and Layer Masks.

Get even more practice with GIMP by following ten tutorials for popular techniques, like making a photo black and white with a pop of color, and adding a drop shadow effect to text that's typed on a photo. These are cool techniques to learn, but even better, they'll actually help you learn how to use GIMP's tools and features in combination. And each tutorial comes at just the right time to refresh your memory, and let you get some practice using the tools you've learned.

Since practice is so important, a free set of practice images is waiting for you at how-to-gimp.com. As you read the book, you can follow along with the practice photos to really get the most out of each chapter.

It's easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to follow. Now, it's easy to learn GIMP.

Product Description:
GIMP is a multi-platform photo manipulation tool. GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. The GIMP is suitable for a variety of image manipulation tasks, including photo retouching, image composition, and image construction. GIMP has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc. GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted. One of The GIMP’s strengths is its free availability from many sources for many operating systems. Most GNU/Linux distributions include The GIMP as a standard application. The GIMP is also available for other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows or Apple’s Mac OS X (Darwin).
This reference manual is based on the online manual. It contains only the first half of it due to physical book size restrictions. Chapter 16 to 18 are included in this volume. Chapter 1-15 are included in the first volume. To keep it consistent with the online manual we did not change the index or page numbering. It is highly suggested to get both volumes (1/2 and 2/2) together.
