What is the GIMP
    The GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software suitable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. This site contains information about downloading, installing, using, and enhancing GIMP. This site also serves as a distribution point for the latest releases, patches, plugins, and scripts. We also try to provide as much information about the GIMP community and related projects as possible.

    Well, The Gimp is an image manipulation program, written by Peter Mattis and Spencer Kimball, and released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). It is a program for UNIX and X. To learn more about this program, just read on on this page

Where can I get The Gimp?
    Easy. From this site. Just look at the Download section. There you'll find the latest stable and the current development version.

What about Gimp for Windows?

GIMP Bug Database Update

A few days ago, the old bug database for the GIMP and GNOME has been replaced by a brand new Bugzilla. Many web pages are still pointing to the old database (bugs.gnome.org) instead of having links to the new one (bugzilla.gnome.org). In order to help you to update your pages or bookmarks, here are some links that could be useful. Click on these links to see what you get, and then bookmark the resulting page if you like it.

Drop everything you are doing right now and go visit GIMPForce.org. It's a creation of the GIMP User Group and has galleries, tutorials, polls, and news.
