GIMP, or GNU Image Manipulation Program, is an entirely free, open-source image editor and creator that---now in its seventeenth year of development---finally seems ready to take on the big guns. Criticized for years for being too oddball, too unstable, too un-Photoshop-like, GIMP has finally edged its way into the mainstream. Yes, it's still really different from Photoshop, but after two decades of Photoshop, is that really a bad thing?
Comprehensive, powerful, professional and totally free, Gimp has all the chances of becoming your next favorite image editor. This feature-packed free Photoshop alternative is a culmination to the three years of work of software enthusiasts. As of now, GIMP, GNU Image Manipulation Program, has a community of no less enthusiastic fans and supporters.
On November 21, 2015, the GIMP developers were euphoric to the 20th birthday of the cross-platform, free and open-source GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) software.
