O'Reilly's latest release in the Pocket Reference series, GIMP Pocket Reference, explains those numerous features and is a concise guide for designers working in a Linux/Unix environment.
Based on the menu structure of the program, GIMP Pocket Reference covers the GIMP's latest version 1.2 and all the plug-ins and scripts that are a part of the standard distribution. It explains the function of every menu item and offers practical tips. The Appendix explains important terms of image manipulation and contains a table of file formats supported by the GIMP.
This little book was designed to help those new to the GIMP learn about its features, as well as to give experienced users a handy reference for quick look-ups of functions. In a remarkably petite 97 pages, it not only provides a concise but thorough reference, it also documents the many, sometimes hidden, features that make working with the GIMP more efficient.
The author, Sven Neumann, started to hack on the GNU Image Manipulation Program, or GIMP, in 1997, and since then he has become one of its leading developers.
