About GIMP

GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a raster editing software for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. 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.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

GIMP is distributed under LGPLv3 and GPLv3+ licenses.
