Like most open source applications, GIMP has a modular structure , allowing it to be functionally expanded at all times. In addition, control elements are ordered, displayed, and deleted depending on the user. On the contrary, a standard configuration that anchors the most important modules in the general interface is missing, making access unnecessarily difficult. Anyone who is knowledgeable about the software and has found their preferred configuration can use it directly after startup. In terms of its functions, GIMP is not far removed from other applications for editing images. These include, for example, the following filters and effects in many unlimited layers:
- Blur filters (eg, pixelize [sic], motion blur)
- Enhance filters (eg anti-aliasing, removing red-eye)
- Highlight and shadow filters (eg, speckle, lens flare)
- Art filters (eg vignette, oil painting)
- Decoration filters (eg, coffee stains, rounded corners)
- Animation filters (eg, blend, waves)
Small improvements are also possible with GIMP. Thus, with a few clicks , color, saturation, contrast, or brightness can be corrected . To this are added tools to crop, scale or rotate the images or tools to edit each of the elements. It's hard to believe that this photo editing program is free because of its many export formats, ranging from typical image formats like . jpg, . gif or . bmp or file formats . gz or . bz2 to web formats like . html or . xhtml .
