GIMP Tutorials

GIMP is a quality "Open Source" photo editing program. GIMP is as powerful and versatile as any commercial photo editing program, but as with most photo editing programs, it has a rather steep learning curve. The GVR Camera Club hopes to offer some GIMP classes in the future, but you may want to explore GIMP through an excellent Web Resource "GIMP Tutorials", for free.
