GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a program allowing users to change and manipulate images. It is a freely distributed software program used for image retouching, composition, and authoring. GIMP has numerous capabilities, and it can be used as an online batch processing system, a simple paint program, a mass production image renderer, an expert quality photo retouching program, an image format converter, etc. This GIMP training course is designed to equip delegates with comprehensive knowledge on the working of GIMP.

Delegates will learn how to create and use selection, add new brushes, and draw simple objects. They will also learn how to enhance photographs by improving the composition and colours.

During this training, delegates will be equipped with the knowledge of how to create shortcuts to menu functions and customise splash screen. In addition, they will be familiarised with scripting, tools, and dialogs. Post completion of this training, delegates will be able to work with different menus and filters.
