|GIMP||The famous application GIMP is indispensable for retouch and bitmap design. As one would expect from such an application, GIMP supports layers, masks, channels and paths and has a whole range of selection, transformation, filter and correction tools.|
|Hugin||To create a panorama in a professional way, one cannot miss Hugin. It is capable of correcting lens imperfections such as barrel and pincushion distortion, vignetting and even transverse chromatic aberration as well as perspective distortion.|

|meetthegimp.org||Rolf Steinort offers on his website meetthegimp.org a weekly video podcast on GIMP. He shows how to use GIMP at an easy pace, with a focus on photography. Other news releated to open source photography software appears as well. He has created a photo group at 23hq.com where viewers of this show can share their pictures.|
