This book is not about tips and tricks, and it's not a collection of image manipulation problems. It is about understanding image manipulation concepts, about knowing which GIMP tools are most effective, and about the savvy use of these tools.
GIMP is an open-source image editing program, which can be used for editing electronic bitmap images like photographs. The book covers basic tools, filters, scripts and many basic or more advanced topics. It also includes some tutorials.
