MakeTechEasier: "The GIMP has been a poster child for the open source movement ever since it came out. It has been compared to Photoshop and has often been spoken of as the only worthy open source contender in the graphics editor category."
Ghacks: "If you’ve ever tried your hand at The GIMP, you know that, at first, The GIMP can be a bit challenging to learn. That is coming from an adult. Imagine a younger user attempting to use The GIMP."
Scott Photographics: "There are a few tutorials for this in Photoshop and Illustrator, but I haven't found any for the GIMP, so I attempted it myself! It is a fairly simple method and easily done with great results!"
A Million Chimpanzees: "I know that GIMP 2.7.0 is the next stable version to be released and understood that it wasn't going to become available until the end of 2010 or the beginning of 2011. What's GIMP 2.6.9 have to offer?"
