We are going to download a software called Gimp and install it, which is a terrific free image manipulation program. Type in gimp, you can use google, I use duckduckgo, for personal reasons. The site you want to download it from which ever method you use to get there is gimp.org, that's where you want to get it from, so if you just go straight there. It tells you here gimp actually stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program it's good for photo retouching, image authoring. If you would like to find out more about it just click on the 'more' link. So here it gives you more in depth on some of the things that Gimp can do. Basically it is a terrific image manipulation program

You can get older versions if you have an older operating system. If you just click on the download link here and click on save. Now I'm going to pause that because I have already downloaded this.
If you go into view downloads, so there's the first one I downloaded I would click on run. We will start it up and you have a choice of what language you want it in. I want it in English, so I click ok and then you will just go ahead and install it. I'm not going to because its already installed. It is a straight forward set up process. Right, so this is already installed so we will get gimp up and running.
It does take a little bit of time to start up, it runs through a load of checks. When you first run gimp it looks like this, you have your tools over here, this is the image part where your image will show and these are all your dialog boxes over here. They've done a great feature in gimp now where it combines the whole thing. So if you click on windows and do single window mode and that puts them all together which makes life so much easier. So that is your initial set up on gimp and you're ready to run.
