May take some time to get used to.

The Gnu Image Manipulation Program (the GIMP) is a fully featured Photoshop clone (with many many added features), produced by hundreds of budding hackers in just the way that Linux was created, under the auspices of the free software foundation. As far as I am aware, you can't get a packaged...

“Children of the Revolution”

published 30/07/2003

It's free. It's powerful.
