the GIMP

The GIMP (short for General Image Manipulation Program) written by Spencer Kimball and Peter Mattis is an excellent drawing tool. Its features are in general too numerous to mention, so these pages are aimed at drawing with the GIMP. All the images on this page were created with the GIMP.

I also drew up a Penguin with the GIMP (version 0.54) as a Linux logo before I got the tablet. I have a description of some of the methods I used to create the Penguin available. Some of my other images are available from my gallery


New features are being added to the GIMP on at a very rapid pace and as such it is difficult to list all the interesting places to find information. In an effort to minimize duplication I won't even try to list them all.
