Smile Photo editing software


Does anyone know about a photo editing program called 'Gimp'?

If so what's the best way to learn how to use it?

Can you answer questions about it?

Thanks for your response.

GIMP is what I used before I had PhotoShop. I haven't used it in years, though.

Best way to learn how to use it would be to just look up tutorials on what you'd like to do, within GIMP.

For example "GIMP tutorial how to resize images" or something like that.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Google Pixel XL

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the under my post

I've only heard about this software, but I'm a long-term user of PS.

It's been a while since I've used Gimp but I prefer it over PS.
You can read a manual on line over here:
Windows 10 .... It wants to be found and installed so it can be the one Operating System to rule us all.

GIMP is widely used on Linux machines. It is cool for basic editing. On Windows, PhotoShop is much better

Start by practicing with editing photos and then watch YouTube videos if you want to know how to do something specific
