  • Jan Smith

Abstract

GIMP is not only for editing digital photographs, the tools used for photo editing are also effective for digital painting and drawing. Digital art has many facets and different styles. While you are bound by the restrictions of your camera and environment, a white canvas enforces no rules — which leaves you to paint anything that comes to your mind. As with any other creative art form, painting is a way of expressing yourself; therefore, this chapter can only tell you techniques and ways to use GIMP.
