"It has been a long time coming, but the wait is over: Linux has its first real end-user power tool.
It's not for administrators. It's not for network hacks. It's not another developers tool. It's for artists.
It's for media managers and graphics nuts. It's for fun. It's for real. It's the GIMP. "

-- Michael Hammel
Linux Journal
November 1997


It is an extremely capable piece of software with many features. It can be used as a simple paint program, a expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, a image format converter, etc, or so The Gimp web site says.

I'm no artist .. but I have introduced this little program to a few people in the know and I have received a bit of feedback from them. All of them wants a windows port ... since it has features that they can only dream of in windows. And the one that pop's up the most ?

Script-Fu

Script-Fu is one of the most impressive features of GIMP is it's scripting capabilities. GIMP makes use of a Procedural Database which provides external programs, such as Script-Fu, to use access internal GIMP functions and procedures. The result is that almost anything that can be done from the regular user interface can also be done via a script. This feature makes GIMP extremely powerful for automated image creation.
