Install GIMP 2.8 Di Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Via PPA - GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.
It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

  1. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking
    intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.
    Here is my site ... Love
