As we mentioned before, GIMP has a changeable interface which allows every user to customize it the way he/she likes, and to make every tool he/she needs to be within a click of a button. This feature only underlines the general feeling of freedom that the program gives, and shows the best properties of the open source programs. Every tool that anyone may need is included in the app, as it will take ages to explain every useful option, which is one of the few flaws of this program. It has so many options that it takes time to master, as it is most useful for specialists. But this problem is usual for all the best image editing applications and only underlines more that this is a world class program. All the main tools are easily visible in the toolbox that can be situated everywhere, as it is for the layers which allow the use of some great image editing options.

Basic Operations

Every change that you want to make to an image is possible with GIMP. There are 34 tools situated in the toolbox, as you can control their various functions from the tool options below. Like almost all image editing programs you can control which layer you want to edit and also choose different patterns, change the brush type, add a gradient, change channels, color, undo, redo and so many other options and tools, that if you arrange them all on the main screen, there will be no place to work with them!


GIMP is an app for which we could say one thing over and over again – It is a world class program. If you want to edit images it will give you the utilities that you need and even more, to the extend that it is actually most useful for professionals. But even new users will find it helpful, after spending some time with it and learning its functions, which are so many that it makes you wonder how so capable app can still be free. And it is, mostly because it is open source from the moment that it was created.
