In between Photoshop and Paint.

Downloaded and installed GIMP 2.6.11 on my laptop today. It’s a free graphics editor software, which serves as a replacement for Photoshop among those who use free licensed OS’s, such as Linux or FreeBSD, because Adobe doesn’t want to port their programs into such wild environment.
