GIMP is a powerful open-source image editor available for Windows, macOS, and GNU/Linux. It’s a versatile tool that is suitable for a variety of image manipulation tasks, including photo retouching, image composition, and image construction. Whether you are a graphic designer, photographer, illustrator, or scientist, GIMP provides you with sophisticated tools needed for high-quality image manipulation.

GIMP provides the tools needed for high-quality image manipulation. From retouching to restoring to creative composites, the only limit is your imagination. Furthermore, it provides top-notch color management features to ensure high-fidelity color reproduction across digital and printed media. It is best used in workflows involving other free software such as Scribus, Inkscape, and SwatchBooker.

GIMP provides extensibility through integration with many programming languages, including Scheme, Python, Perl, and more. The result is a high level of customization as demonstrated by the large number of scripts and plug-ins created by the community.

GIMP includes a unique support for various input devices out of the box. Pressure and tilt sensitive tablets, but also a wide range of USB or MIDI controllers. You can bind often-used actions to device events, such as rotating a USB wheel or moving a MIDI controller’s slider. Change the size, angle and opacity of a brush while you paint and bind your favorite scripts to buttons. Speed up your workflow!
