GIMP for Mac (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a freely distributed piece of software acceptable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition, and image authoring. It's a strong piece of software with capabilities not found in any other free software product. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert-quality photo-retouching application, an online batch-processing system, a mass production image renderer, or an image-format converter. It's designed to be fortified with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complicated image-manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.
Each task takes a different environment and GIMP for Mac allows you to customize the perspective and behaviour how you like it. Beginning from the widget theme, allowing you to change colors, widget spacings and icon sizes to custom tool sets at the toolbox. The port is modulized into so called docks, enabling you to pile them or store them open in their own window. Pressing the tab key will toggle them concealed.
Numerous digital photo imperfections can be easily paid for using GIMP for Mac. Fix perspective distortion brought on by lens tip simply choosing the corrective manner from the transform tools. Remove lens' barrel distortion and vignetting using a highly effective filter but a very simple interface.
GIMP is ideal for advanced photo retouching techniques. Eliminate unneeded details using the clone tool, or touch up small details easily with the new healing tool. With the view clone tool, it's not hard to replicate objects with view in mind as easily as using the orthogonal clone.
GIMP for Mac includes a very unique service for various input devices out of the box. Pressure and tilt sensitive pills, but also a vast array of USB or MIDI controllers. It's possible to bind often-used activities to device events such as rotating a USB wheel or transferring a MIDI controller's slider. Change the size, angle or opacity of a brush as you paint, bind your favorite scripts . Speed up your workflow!
The file format support ranges from the frequent enjoys of JPEG (JFIF), GIF, PNG, TIFF to particular use formats like the multi-resolution and multi-color-depth Mac icon documents. The design allows to extend GIMP's format capabilities with a plug-in. You can find some rare format aid in the GIMP plugin registry.
To conserve disk space, any arrangement can be stored with an archive such as ZIP, GZ or BZ2 and GIMP will transparently compress the document without having having to do any extra steps.
