A Simple Introduction to The GIMP

Eleanor Baskerville


The GNU Image Manipulation Program allows you to create, edit, and manipulate images. It can also be used as a paint program, since it has drawing and painting tools. This presentation is a very simple introduction for beginners; a more advanced GIMP presentation is planned for a meeting in the summer.

(Note: For those of you with a decent Internet connection, The GUM (GIMP User Manual) has recently been updated, and can be found in HTML and Adobe PDF form at The PDF files are 9.6Meg for the manual and 1.2Meg for the colour plates...)
