Synopsis

gimp [options] [files]

The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a full-featured image-editing package that rivals Adobe Photoshop in power and scope. It is fairly complex to use, but the results can be stunning. Visit http://www.gimp.org for full information. To run the program, type:

$ gimp

To edit a particular file, type:

$ gimp filename

If the GIMP is more complicated than you need, try Pinta (http://pinta-project.com/) or xv (http://www.trilon.com/xv). xv is no longer maintained, but it’s one of this author’s favorite utilities:

$ xv myfile.jpg

Click the right mouse button anywhere on the image to reveal the menu of editing tools.
