It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc. Learn more about the GIMP...
GIMP Portable Background Window 2.1.3 and Photoshop Layout
Two extras that enhance GIMP Portable are also available: GIMP Portable Photoshop Layout and GIMP Portable Background Window. The Photoshop Layout add-on adjusts GIMP's dock/toolbox to more closely approximate the layout of Adobe Photoshop. The Background Window plugin allows GIMP to occupy a single window. The background plugin does contain known bugs and is unsupported but should still be useful to many users.
New in This Release
GIMP has been updated to 2.6.11 (release notes). The launcher and installer have also been updated to improve portablity including proper cleanup of additional files and better brush support. Please note that GIMP no longer supports Windows 2000.
