  6:30pm - 9:30pm

The topic will be:

  The Gimp (the GNU Image Manipulation Program)
  Part 1: Basics
  presented by Bill Kendrick

  "The Gimp" is an imaging tool, available freely for both
  Linux and Windows operating systems, and often compared to
  commercial software such as Adobe's "PhotoShop"(tm).

  This talk will cover the basics of using version 1.2 of "The Gimp"
  to create original compositions and retouch photographs, for use on
  the web and elsewhere.

  A follow-up talk will occur to discuss the more advanced features of
  The Gimp, including using its built-in scripting tools to automate
  image generation, to create original filters, and for batch-processing
  collections of image files.
