I was recently having a conversation with my brother-in-law Allen, who is a professional photographer (you can check out his work here) about photo editing software, Photoshop and the cost of the program. He told me about a free program called GIMP and how good it was supposed to be; very comparable to Photoshop. I was of course skeptical because 1. it was free and 2. i am a huge huge fan of photoshop. Well earlier today I finally had a chance to search the internet for the program, check it out and decide to download it. It took it a bit to download and install and I have only played with it a bit but I think I am really going to like it. It seems to have pretty much everything that Photoshop had (or at least the last version I played with) and maybe even more.
I was able to do some changes to this photo of my dad and Micah. I wanted to select the background and then take out all the color. I figured it was going to take me forever. But I selected the tool and within 5 minutes I had completed all the enhancements to it that I wanted to do. It was so easy. I will post more about it in the future so that you can see more of my fun work and learn more about the program.
