The GIMP: The GNU Image Manipulation Program: The Hadjaha Release

The GIMP is designed to be a professional image manipulation program 
suitable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image

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.

The automated plug-in registry is located at:

There you can get the latest versions of plug-ins using a convenient
forms-based interface.

The latest version of The GIMP can be found at:

2. Mailing Lists

We have several mailing lists dedicated to GIMP user and development
discussion.  There is more info at<listname>

substituting <listname> for "gimp-announce", "gimp-user", "gimp-win-user", 
or "gimp-developer" (without the quotes, of course) depending on the list 
you want to subscribe to.  Links to the mailing list archives can be found 
at the same addresses as given above.

Gimp-announce is a low-traffic list with announcements about new releases 
of GIMP and plug-ins. Gimp-user is a mailing list dedicated to user problems, 
hints and tips, discussion of cool effects, etc.  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 and . Note that as these mailing
lists are hosted on, 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.

3. IRC

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:

4. Customizing

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 Additionally GIMP reads ~/.gimp-1.2/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-1.2/menurc. You can also manually change the keybindings to any of
your choice by editing ~/.gimp-1.2/menurc.

5. Bugs

We sincerely hope you enjoy the program.  Please report problems using
