Edit Images

Use the GIMP to crop, scale, and otherwise edit your photos.

[Hack #6] discusses different ways under Linux to access the photos from a digital camera, but what tools do you use once the photos are on your computer? Sometimes you might be fine with a picture, but other times you may want to crop out something, resize the photo, or rotate it so it has the right orientation. While there are a number of programs that can do all these things—even some that run from the command line—the GIMP is the de facto standard when you want to edit images graphically. In this hack, I cover how to perform some of the common changes you might want to make to a photo or other image. The GIMP can do a number of pretty advanced things, but this hack sticks to the basics.
