GIMP 2.6 for Photographers is a new book from Klaus Goelker that guides beginning GIMP users through the open-source image editing software. GIMP 2.6 is free, open-source software compatible with Windows, OS X and Linux.
GIMP is considered a rather powerful alternative to Photoshop; however, educational info on GIMP has sometimes been difficult to find. This book “has evolved from classroom materials that the author developed and taught in courses and workshops on image editing with the GIMP.” Conveniently, the book includes a software DVD that contains a full version of GIMP and other open-source photo programs for those with slower Internet connections.
GIMP 2.6 for Photographers carries a retail price of $39.95; however, it is currently available for $26.37 on Amazon.com.
