GIMP an alternative to Adobe Photoshop

February 27, 2012 at 2:42 pm Leave a comment

Yesterday I was updating a mapper extension from BizTalk 2006 to BizTalk 2010 but the functoids icons wouldn’t display correctly. After further analysis I found out the problem was with the color palette used by the images. Usually I would use Adobe Photoshop but I just bought a new notebook and hadn’t had the time to reinstall it.

Because the solution needed to be compiled ASAP I contacted a friend of mine with vast experience in Graphics Design and she recommended me to download GIMP. At first I was hesitant to use it because I have never heard of it but I decided to give it a try.

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It was first released back in 1996 and its currently release is 2.6. It has been developed and matured to be recognized as a real alternative for Photoshop and the best of all: It is free!


GIMP supports a lot of file formats, a very complete toolbox and a wide range of effects and filters.

You can download GIMP here.
