GIMP has many of the tools and filters you would expect to find in similar commercial offerings, and some interesting extras as well. GIMP provides a large image manipulation toolbox, including channel operations and layers, effects, sub-pixel imaging and anti-aliasing, and conversions, all with multi-level undo. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: This update adds checks to avoid heap corruption and buffer overflows when loading GIF image files (CVE-2011-2896).
