Gimp is a program that is like Photoshop, only it’s free for people to download any time they like. It can be used for many different things from a range of creating banners to creating an animation of photos.
There are so many things you can do with gimp. For starters you can get an image off the internet and if it has white around it that you don’t want, you can use the magic wand to go around the white and just leave you with the image. You can also make a shiny button effect. This makes whatever shape you are using look a bit more effective and professional.
Another thing you can do is go to the gimp website – http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/ and it tells you how to create things using gimp. If you’re a new user of gimp this helps you to get started and when you follow some of them you may get a better idea of how you can use gimp to create things that you may want to create.
Overall this is a very good piece of software!
