GIMP - The best 100% free image editing tool

GIMP is a completely free image editing program with a wide variety of professional features. Designed for Windows, GIMP is the program you are looking for to edit photos and create images or illustrations without spending a single penny.

Thanks to GIMP, you can create icons, images, design elements, illustrations, and much more. The program was initially created for Linux, but over time versions compatible with Windows and even Mac have been released. Its features are very similar to those offered by programs like InPixio Free Photo Editor or the famous Adobe Photoshop.

Work easily with all types of image files

The GNU Image Manipulation Program or GIMP is a free and open-source image editor with features that rival commercial photo editing tools. After a long journey, GIMP now has a very user-friendly interface and a wide variety of editing functions.

When you start GIMP for the first time, you will see that its interface is very clean and simple. In addition to being very intuitive, the program also offers improved performance compared to previous versions. The main window of the program is divided into three parts: one section is reserved for editing and the other two contain different toolboxes, menus, and channels.

The program is designed to work easily with different file formats. It doesn't matter if you import a file in RAW, JPEG, or PSD format. The program will automatically detect it and you can continue working. However, if you intend to use GIMP along with Photoshop, you should keep in mind that the latter is not compatible with GIMP or XCF files.

A very versatile and open-source program

With the help of this open-source program, you can carry out all kinds of projects, such as photo retouching, image creation, and composition. The program includes a full-screen mode that allows you to preview the images at any point during editing.

Furthermore, since GIMP is open-source software, it is easy to expand. You can use a variety of extensions and plugins to customize the program according to your needs. In fact, when you download the program, you will find many pre-installed plugins to offer a better experience to users. The program also has an active community that has developed a multitude of plugins that can be very useful to you.

GIMP is compatible with Windows 7 and higher versions, including Windows 11. The program is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

    Recommend it because it is free, but not that user friendly.
