Transcript of "Educ 190 Report on GIMP"

  1. 1. GNU Image Manipulation Program (adapted from Gruber, 2010)<br />Marella Therese A. Tiongson EDUC 190<br />
  2. 2. What is GIMP? (Gruber, 2010) <br />GNUImage Manipulation Program. <br />100% free, both in cost and in the right to alter and use the software.<br />Can be used as a paint program, for photo retouching, as a batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, and more!<br />GIMP is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions.<br />
  3. 3. History (Kimball & Mathis / GIMP.Org)<br />Originally stood for the General Image Manipulation Program<br />Created by Spencer Kimball and Peter Mathis in 1995 as a semester-long project at the University of California, Berkeley<br />First publicly released in January 1996<br />GIMP joined the GNU Project in 1997 GIMP and changed its acronym to GNU Image Manipulation Program<br />
  4. 4. History (Kimball & Mathis / GIMP.Org)<br />GIMP is presently maintained and enhanced by a group of volunteers under the GNOME Project.<br />It was first created for UNIX systems, but can now be presently installed in Windows and MacOSX.<br />Ever since it was released, GIMP was rapidly adopted by a community of users who continue to create tutorials, artwork, share techniques, and contribute to the overall improvement of the program.<br />
  5. 5. Where to get GIMP<br />Windows installer: <br />http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html<br />Apple installer:<br />http://www.gimp.org/macintosh/<br />Unix/Linux installer:<br />http://www.gimp.org/unix/<br />
  6. 6. GIMP vs. Photoshop (Gruber, 2010)<br />Cost:<br />GIMP: $0<br />Photoshop: $699 (CS5); $999 (CS5 Extended)<br />Size:<br />GIMP: 17.39 megabytes<br />Photoshop: 1 gigabyte available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation<br />
  7. 7. GIMP vs. Photoshop (Gruber, 2010) <br />Both programs provide a strong set of basic photo editing commands and tools: 1)Ability to open/import most of the basic bitmap graphic filetypes including PNG, JPG, GIF; 2)Ability to adjust those images with crop, rotate, resize and many other transformations; 3)Ability to make local retouches, sharpening and other image corrections; 4)Do color and exposure/lightness corrections with a broad range of dialogs and tools;<br />
  8. 8. GIMP vs. Photoshop (Gruber, 2010) <br />Both programs provide a strong set of basic photo editing commands and tools: 5)Mask selective areas on an image(or layer)- only there will edits/brushstrokes apply; 6)Allow creating a stack of two or dozens of layers from other images, text, vector graphics, etc; 7)Allow filters or special effects to be applied to one or more layers including the base image; 8)Produce output to several graphic filetypes, printers, and/or web pages/galleries.<br />
  9. 9. GIMP vs. Photoshop<br />“GIMP continues to grow and is quickly becoming serious competition for Adobe Photoshop…It's time to start taking this free program seriously… However, GIMP was not designed to be a Photoshop clone.” (Stonecypher, 2008)<br />

  13. 13. User Interface<br />
  14. 14. Advantages (Conner, 2010)<br />GIMP is free, because it is being developed as an open source project<br />It is practically as powerful a piece of software as Photoshop<br />You can open Photoshop files in GIMP, and use Photoshop brushes and patterns there as well<br />
  15. 15. Advantages (Conner, 2010)<br />GIMP is compatible with most operating systems. There are versions available for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and Sun OpenSolaris<br />Support is easily available, since GIMP has a strong online community that offers tutorials and techniques. Support is fast and free!<br />
  16. 16. Disadvantages<br />GIMP can be difficult to learn if you are a beginner. (Conner, 2010) Its user interface may be confusing. <br />GIMP is not part of a workflow suite, whereas Photoshop allows documents to be easily transferred into Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat … (gimphelp.org)<br />
  17. 17. Educational Applications<br />Encouraging creativity and art<br />Enhancing visuals in lessons, making them easier to understand<br />Makes lessons fun, thus engaging students<br />
