digital images. The \gimp\ provides the user with a wide variety of
image manipulation, painting, processing, and rendering tools. The
key to the \gimp's power lies in its flexible core and easily
extensible design. The \gimp's open design and extensible
architecture make for a very powerful end product which can continue
to be extended to meet the needs of the photo compositor, image
retoucher, web graphics designer, or digital illustrator for a very

In addition to these channel types, each image also has either
one or three ``virtual'' channels (three for RGB images, one for
grayscale and indexed). This/these are merely the pixel array
resulting from the layer composition process, and is made available to
support the ``sample merged'' functionality in some of the tools.
Also, with RGB images, it is possible to deselect one or more of the
red, green or blue channels; doing so will cause that portion of the
colorspace to be excluded from the composition process.
