Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional is a comprehensive but clear, concise, and attractive guide for absolute beginners (who have never edited an image before) to learn using GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program), an increasingly popular free and open-source image processing application, from scratch.

The entire book consists of 12 chapters and 3 appendices, containing four–color graphics and screenshots, step-by-step instructions and sample projects, covering all the basics and advanced topics about GIMP software, ranging from installation (on various platforms) and background on common graphic file formats, to drawing, photograph manipulation, filters/effects, and even scripting, etc.

When finish this book, you will at least learn how to install GIMP on multiple platforms (Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X); learn about GIMP’s whole user interface and configuration options; how to draw lines and shapes; how to utilize the layers, patterns, paths, masks, and gradients; how to touch up digital photographs: smudging away blemishes, fixing red–eye, blending modes, image stacking, and stitching panoramas; how to create your own brushes, patterns, and gradients; how to prepare camera images for display on web pages; how to draw original icons of your own; how to paint out unwanted objects; how to write simple GIMP scripts and plug-ins for automation, and more.
