From the reviews:

"Peck’s textbook provides a thorough treatment of topics ranging from installation (on various platforms) and background on common graphic file formats, to drawing, photograph manipulation, filters/effects, and even scripting … . In addition, a thorough treatment of the tools useful to experienced designers is provided … . Peck’s book is effective in showing just how far GIMP has progressed in 12 years. Beginners may be surprised … with this free application, especially with the assistance of this clear, concise, and attractive textbook." (Ian van der Linde, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (2), February, 2008)


I found this book to contain relevant information which could be invaluable in ones journey into the fascinating world of image manipulation using GIMP.

— Ravi Kumar, Slashdot contributor

This book is great for the completely new user, but even the seasoned veteran can learn quite a bit.

— Chad W. Smith, GIMPShop dot Net

This one is the most comprehensive and useful books that I’ve found. I give it a five for five. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others.

— Mark Vandewettering, Brainwagon

Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional explains how to use the open source image manipulation program, GIMP version 2.4. You’ll learn how to install GIMP on Windows, Linux, and MacOS X platforms. Once you’ve installed the application, you’ll learn about the interface and configuration options, and then jump into a quick–and–simple project to familiarize yourself even further.

With four–color graphics and screenshots throughout, you’ll learn how to prepare camera images for display on web pagesincluding functions like rescaling, cropping, and balancing color. The book also explains with great detail how to utilize layers, paths, and masks. You’ll also learn how to draw lines and shapes, use patterns and gradients, and even create your own brushes, patterns, and gradients.

Touch–ups are covered thoroughly: how to smudge away blemishes, fix red–eye, and stitch panoramic images. You’ll even learn how to tap into the powerful filters, effects, and plug–ins that are available and automate tasks using scripts. The entire book is laid out in a project–based manner, so as you progress through it, numerous projects help solidify your newly acquired abilities.

5.0 von 5 Sternen gut verständlich 8. Februar 2012
Von orbit60
Das Buch ist gut verständlich geschrieben und enthält zahlreiche Abbildungen und Beispiele. Die Verfasserin ermöglicht Anwendern der Originalsoftware ein schrittweises Erlernen und Anwenden der vorgestellten Funktionen. Es handelt sich zwar nicht um die "brandneue" Version des Buches, aber es reicht aus, um auch z.B. mit The Gimp 2.6 die ersten Erfahrungen zu sammeln.

5.0 von 5 Sternen finally, an updated guide! well-done! 17. Juli 2006
Von Robert Nagle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've been reading and using this book for a few weeks. It's great!

The open source community needed an updated gimp book. Gimp is already a mature open source project, and the two books that came out a few years ago were long outdated.

The best thing about the book is the generous use of images to illustrate her points.. APress did a fantastic job with layout and making it easy to find things.

I appreciate how the book reviewed a few basic points with general information. In short, this book has a little bit for everybody.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a great book! 10. August 2006
Von Thomas Duff - Veröffentlicht auf
I'm the first to admit that my graphical skills are limited. I have a version of PaintShop Pro that's a few revs out of date, and it does just what I need it to do... crop images, circle items of note, and erase the stray word or two. I've downloaded GIMP before, but I just don't have the time or motivation to explore all the options it appears to have. But after reading Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional by Akkana Peck, I think I'm about to make the switch to GIMP, and to make it permanently. This is a really well-done book...

Contents: Get to Know the GIMP; Improving Digital Photos; Introduction to Layers; Drawing; Selection; Erasing and Touching Up; Filters and Effects; Color Manipulation, Channels, and Layer Modes; Advanced Drawing; Advanced Compositing; Plug-Ins and Scripting; Additional Topics; Getting and Installing the GIMP; Installing the GIMP on Windows; Installing the GIMP on Mac; Installing the GIMP on Linux or Unix; Building From Source; First Startup; Index

Peck has tried to create a book that allows graphical neophytes like me to figure out what's going on, while also including material for those who have been doing this awhile. She definitely hits the first mark, and I think she nails the second one, also. The book starts with the basic of the GIMP interface, with an abundance of screen shots and images to illustrate the points. Even someone like me can easily see what's possible with the software, and I was able to quickly find and focus on the few tasks I do often with my existing software. I normally start to zone out when books start to head into the layers and color manipulation area, because I've never had much luck when it comes to that. But the author actually had me fishing out a few digital photos to try some things. I can even start to fix some of my good photos that were a victim of the demon red-eye effects... :)

Bottom line... My old PaintShop Pro is now on the way out, as well as my out-of-date book on it. GIMP's getting loaded on all the PCs, and with the help of this book, I might even become... <gasp!> GRAPHICALLY CREATIVE!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book can turn anyone into a graphic artist! 28. Juni 2006
Von Chad Smith - Veröffentlicht auf
Akkana Peck has written a very thorough introduction to the GIMP. In fact, I'd call it more of a definitive guide than just an introduction. This book is great for the completely new user, but even the seasoned veteran can learn quite a bit from "Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional".

Covering everything from where to get and how to install the GIMP to how to use the powerful built-in scripting language Script-Fu, which allows users to use and program scripts for repeatable actions, like adding bevel or glass effects. Despite its thoroughness - it's written in a easy-to-understand way that anyone can benefit from.

You can learn more about this awesome book on Akkana's website -

All this and the software (GIMP) is free for Windows, Mac, Unix, or Linux!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not much good as a reference 11. Oktober 2006
Von K. R. Tipple - Veröffentlicht auf
Although this book may be very useful to someone who has had no prior experience with an image editing program before, I have found it particularly frustrating to use because I have never been able to find help on any subject I have needed a quick reference on without a great deal of searching. I am used to Photoshop related books that normally provide a decent index where one can look up a topic and get to it in a hurry. Not so with this book; I have to hunt and hunt to find out what I am looking for, if I can find it at all, without just experimenting with Gimp. On the other hand, it will probably be more useful to first time users of image manipulation programs simply because in its peculiar way, it does actually cover most topics, eventually, and if one read it through from the beginning it would probably help. My conclusion: It could be much better organized and indexed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Akkana Peck deserves a medal! 15. Dezember 2006
Von Scott Beamer - Veröffentlicht auf
A book like this has been long overdue. I've been looking for a "current" book on the GIMP for the past few years. I just recently discovered this one.

Not only is it current, but it's fantastic. It's very thorough. I've been using all kinds of Image Editing software for years (Paint Shop Pro, Photo-Paint, Ulead PhotoInmpact and The GIMP) but I've never really been able to do much beyond simple editing.

In the past year or so I've done most of my image editing in The GIMP (partly because I've been spending more time in Linux). I've also used the Windows version. Both are virtually identical so having this book is great either way.

Honestly it's going to take a lot of study for me to get everything down, but that's no fault of the book. Quite the contrary, it just shows how good it is.

Considering one can find umpteen books on most proprietary image editing software and the fact that this single book is so thorough speaks volumes about it.

GIMP users are very lucky. Thank you Akkana!
