From creating professional-quality graphics to editing, manipulating, and printing them, it's all covered in this comprehensive guide to the latest version of GIMP. The book's easy-to-follow approach breaks down complicated processes into series of clear, step-by-step instructions accompanied by loads of helpful illustrations. Almost instantly readers will be able to create everything from high-quality artwork ready for four-color printing to banners and animation ready for distribution on the Web. GIMP, short for GNU Image Manipulation Program, is as powerful as Photoshop yet more extensible through the use of scripts and plug-ins. GIMP is the only professional-quality graphics program for Linux, the powerful Unix-like operating system that just might give Microsoft a run for its money, it has a huge community of fans and developers.
