I found this book to contain relevant information which could be invaluable in ones journey into the fascinating world of image manipulation using GIMP.

- Ravi Kumar, Slashdot contributor

This book is great for the completely new user, but even the seasoned veteran can learn quite a bit.

- Chad W. Smith, GIMPShop dot Net

This one is the most comprehensive and useful books that I’ve found. I give it a five for five. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others.

- Mark Vandewettering, Brainwagon

Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional explains how to use the open source image manipulation program, GIMP version 2.4. You’ll learn how to install GIMP on Windows, Linux, and MacOS X platforms. Once you’ve installed the application, you’ll learn about the interface and configuration options, and then jump into a quick–and–simple project to familiarize yourself even further.

With four–color graphics and screenshots throughout, you’ll learn how to prepare camera images for display on web pagesincluding functions like rescaling, cropping, and balancing color. The book also explains with great detail how to utilize layers, paths, and masks. You’ll also learn how to draw lines and shapes, use patterns and gradients, and even create your own brushes, patterns, and gradients.

Touch–ups are covered thoroughly: how to smudge away blemishes, fix red–eye, and stitch panoramic images. You’ll even learn how to tap into the powerful filters, effects, and plug–ins that are available and automate tasks using scripts. The entire book is laid out in a project–based manner, so as you progress through it, numerous projects help solidify your newly acquired abilities.
