John's Favorite Photos

Even with today's point-and-shoot cameras, it's not easy to get the pictures you take to look just right without help. Sometimes the star of the photo is too far away; eyes look bloodshot; the color is washed out or too dark; most of the photos are crooked and a bit blurry. What's a budding photographer to do? Windows and Macintosh computers come with programs that are good for at least a bit of photo editing. There's Photoshop and Photoshop Elements for the rest of the issues, but those programs don't come cheaply.

Enter GIMP. (All right-- it's a stupid name-- stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program.) But it's quite as powerful as Photoshop Elements, it's available for Windows, Macintosh and Unix computers, and it doesn't cost a dime. Curious? Click the first link at the left to read more about it. Click the second link to download, install, and get started using it. Or give John a call and become a GIMP power user. Learn to perfect those photos you've been taking.
