As a full-featured, free alternative to Adobe Photoshop, the GIMP is one of the world's most popular open source projects, with millions of users. Although extremely powerful, the GIMP is not always easy to use and the mountains of forums and how-to videos online are daunting to wade through and not always helpful.The Artist's Guide to GIMP, 2nd Edition will show you how to unlock the power of GIMP 2.8 with its collection of practical, illustrated tutorials. Rather than describe every menu item in exhaustive detail, author Michael J. Hammel (a GIMP user and contributor for over 15 years), focuses on the program's most useful features, like brush customization, selection tools, and patterns and gradients. After a tour of the GIMP interface and an introduction to fundamental techniques like using layers, selecting objects, and drawing basic shapes, Hammel dives into a series of illustrated hands-on tutorials that will show you how to repair damaged photos, convert a picture to a sketch, add reflections, manipulate text, design logos, and much more. Whether you're trying to create an advertisement, restore an old photo or express your artistic side without breaking the bank, The Artist's Guide to GIMP, 2nd Editionputs the power of GIMP at your fingertips.

Michael J. Hammel has been a contributor to GIMP since 1996 (version 0.59). A former contributor to Linux Format magazine, Hammel is the author of three books on the GIMP: The Artist's Guide to the GIMP (SSC, 1998), Essential GIMP for Web Professionals (Prentice Hall, 2001), and The Artist's Guide to GIMP Effects (No Starch Press, 2007). Hammel currently works as an embedded software engineer in Colorado Springs.
