Overview

Image Editing has become a key element in the photographic workflow. Image editing tools, most notably Photoshop, are usually sophisticated and deep applications - and fairly expensive. The only open source tool in this market is the GIMP, which has developed into a powerful multiplatform system, running on Linux, as well as OS X and Windows.

This book has evolved from the classroom materials the author developed and used in courses and workshops on Image Editing with the GIMP. It covers the basics of image editing and guides the reader through the functions and tools of GIMP from simple adjustments to more advanced techniques with layers and masks. The more important editing functions are presented in individual workshops. Moreover, the book covers the stitching of panoramic images and preparation of high-quality black and white images.

    GIMP 2 for Photographers

    Overall a fine book. Having never used any serious photo editing software, the first time I started GIMP was intimidating. Though fun to play with and easy to learn the basics, the author does a comprehensive job of providing the information needed to master photo manipulation with GIMP. Not a light read, it requires some concentration to work through the tutorials, which are very good. The accompanying CD includes files that complement the text. It has served its purpose, I am no longer intimidated by GIMP and can use it with confidence.
