Photo editing software cost too much? Try GIMP.

If you are like me, one of the barriers to using Photoshop at work or home is the price. Sure, Photoshop elements is pretty reasonable, but what is more reasonable than free?  GIMP is an open source tool that offers much of the same functionality (at none of the cost). It might take some getting used to, but so does Photoshop if you don’t know it well. 

I have used GIMP to edit pictures for my presentations, and I’ve been happy with it. I am quite the newbie, but I have been able to clean up my images pretty well. 

Please note, Photoshop is a great product. For those of you who work with this software day in and day out, your needs may be different than the casual users.

Do you use any photo editing software? Have you tried GIMP? Do you think I am a fool for endorsing anything but the great Photoshop? Go ahead, let me have it.
