Bring out the GIMP

OK, for anyone who's seen PulpFiction that's probably a little bit tasteless, but it is appropriate I swear! I know alot of you are interested in image editing programs, but aren't necessarily interested in paying for PhotoShop. There are good free options out there, some of which have been posted on this blog in the past, but I thought I'd turn you another very feature rich option, GIMP. Here's a short description:
"GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It 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."

Check out the features listed on their website at: http://www.gimp.org/about/introduction.html

They also have some decent HTML tutorials on a variety of topics at: http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/
