GIMP Your Photos

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program.  Now, I now what you're thinking..."huh?".  I had the same reponse, and I'll admit I had to look up the meaning of GNU (a computer operating system comprised entirely of free software).  Basically, this means that GIMP, despite it's rather unfortunate name, is a super-duper, Photoshop like, photo editing software that is completely free.  That's right, free!
