The GIMP: The GNU Image Manipulation Program
This is an unstable release of the GIMP, intended for developers only.
For production use, please use the 1.0.x series.
The GIMP is designed to be a professional image manipulation program
for both print and on-line based outputs.
For installation instructions, see the file INSTALL.
1. Web Resources
The GIMP's home page is at:
Please be sure to visit this site for information, documentation,
tutorials, news, etc. All things GIMP-ish are available from there.

2. Mailing Lists
We have several mailing lists dedicated to GIMP user and development
discussion. To subscribe, send an empty message to
substituting <listname> for "gimp-user", "gimp-announce" or
"gimp-developer" (without the quotes, of course) depending on the list you
want to subscribe to. The mailing list archives can be found at:
Gimp-user is a mailing list dedicated to user problems, hints and
tips, discussion of cool effects, etc. Gimp-announce is a low-traffic list
with announcements about new releases of GIMP and plug-ins. Gimp-developer is
oriented to GIMP core and plug-in developers. Most people will only want to
be subscribed to gimp-user. If you want to help develop The GIMP, the
gimp-developer mailing list is a good starting point.
There are two mailing lists dedicated to the Win32 port,
"gimpwin-users" and "gimpwin-dev". Especially the latter also carries
traffic about the GTk+ port to Win32 in general. To subscribe, send an
empty message to
respectively. You can also use the web interface at
http://www.egroups.com/group/gimpwin-dev/ . Note that as these mailing
lists are hosted on egroups.com, the messages from the list contain
relatively unintrusive and easily ignored advertisements at the
end. But if you are absolutely allergic to ads, don't subscribe.
And finally, for the real junkies, there is an IRC channel devoted to
the GIMP. On Byxnet (a private mostly-GIMP network) there is #gimp.
Many of the developers hang out there. One of the Byxnet servers are:
The look of GIMP's interface can be customized like any other GTK app
by editing the ~/.gtkrc file or by using "themes" (ready-made
customizations). For downloadable themes and further details, see
http://gtk.themes.org. Additionally GIMP reads ~/.gimp-1.1/gtkrc so you
can have settings that only apply to The GIMP.
Included is a set of keybindings similar to those in Adobe Photoshop (tm).
You can find them in the ps-menurc file. To use them, copy this file to
~/.gimp-1.1/menurc. You can also manually change the keybindings to any of
your choice by editing ~/.gimp-1.1/menurc.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the program. Please report problems to
email@example.com. Before reporting a problem, you may want to see if someone
else did already - check http://bugs.gnome.org/db/pa/lgimp.html for this.
