Worth giving GIMP a look

For years I've wanted to learn a photo editing ap better, but I haven't wanted to get too into it, and spend a fortune, so I avoided PhotoShop. When we converted our office to open source software, I started using GIMP and found my photo ap. But I've never really known how to use it. Thanks to the Digital Photo SIG and presenter Phillip Williams for holding this informative intro... nice to see lots of friends there, and so much interest in open source software!

Seems once you know the basics, it all comes down to experimenting. I recommend giving GIMP a try.
