      GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a
      freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching,

      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
34
      procedures to be easily scripted. GIMP is available for Linux,
35
      Microsoft Windows and OS X.
