The GNU Image Manipulation Program, or GIMP, is a free image editor comparable often touted as a viable replacement to Photoshop. It boasts a powerful feature set that is beyond most, if not all freeware editors available to the general public at this moment. This bold claim is backed up by its immense capability such as through the use of layer editing, channel mixing and customizable brushes. Built-in filters and image creation tools are also of noteworthiness; or if you find its default selection lacking, extensions can be used to improves upon or add to the functions of GIMP. Though the absence of certain features would have some deeming the software inferior to Photoshop, its progress so far will still impress amateur artists, photographers or those in favor of open-source development in general.
