Who needs to spend hundreds of quid on Photoshop when you can get Gimp for free? The problems with Gimp are that if you learned Photoshop it can take a while to get used to the quite different Gimp layout, and some features work very differently, and the manual - such as there is one - is in a permanent state of being not quite finished. Peck's book is a simple but thorough guide to the numerous features and formidable power of one of the greatest pieces of free software ever devised. I'll never be nostalgic for Adobe again, since with this book at my side Gimp is no longer scary.
