       The GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is used to edit and manipulate  images.
       It  can	load  and save a variety of image formats and can be used to convert between for-

       Gimp can also be used as a paint program. It features a set of drawing and painting  tools
       such  as  airbrush,  clone,  pencil,  and  paint  brush. Painting and drawing tools can be
       applied to an image with a variety of paint modes.  It also offers an extensive	array  of
       selection  tools  like  rectangle, ellipse, fuzzy select, bezier select, intelligent scis-
       sors, and select by color.

       Gimp offers a variety of plugins that perform a variety of image manipulations.	 Examples
       include bumpmap, edge detect, gaussian blur, and many others.

       In addition, Gimp has several scripting extension which allow for advanced non-interactive
       processing and creation of images.

       The gimp accepts the following options:

       -h, --help
	       Display a list of all commandline options.

       -v, --version
	       Output the version info.

       -b, --batch <commands>
	       Execute the set of <commands> non-interactively. The set of  <commands>	is  typi-
	       cally  in  the  form of a script that can be executed by one of the Gimp scripting

       -g, --gimprc <gimprc>
	       Use an alternative gimprc instead of the default one. Useful in cases where  plug-
	       ins paths or machine specs may be different.

       -i, --no-interface
	       Run without a user interface.

       -r, --restore-session
	       Try to restore saved session.

       -d, --no-data
	       Do  not load patterns, gradients, palettes, or brushes. Often useful in non-inter-
	       active situations where startup time is to be minimized.

	       Show startup messages.

	       Do not use shared memory between GIMP and its plugins.  Instead	of  using  shared
	       memory,	GIMP  will send the data via pipe. This will result in slower performance
	       than using shared memory.

	       Do not use the X Shared Memory extension. If GIMP is being displayed on a remote X
	       server,	this  probably	needs  to  be  enabled. Also useful for any X server that
	       doesn't properly support the X shared  memory  extension.   This  will  result  in
	       slower performance than with X shared memory enabled.

       --display display
	       Use the designated X display.

       -s, --no-splash
	       Do not show the splash screen.

       -S, --no-splash-image
	       Do not show the splash screen image as part of the splash screen.

	       Enable debugging signal handlers.

       -c, --console-messages
	       Do not popup dialog boxes on errors or warnings. Print the messages on the console

       --enable-stack-trace {never|query|always}
	       If a stack-trace should be generated in case of fatal signals.

       --system-gimprc <gimprc>
	       Use an alternate system gimprc file.

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

	       to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources  stored  in
	       the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.

       Gimp's  data  files  are stored in /usr/share/gimp/1.2, where ${prefix} is set on install,
       but is  typically  /usr/local.  Gimp's  system-wide  configuration  files  are  stored  in
       /etc/gimp/1.2.	 Most	gimp  configuration  is  read  in  from  the  user's  init  file,
       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/gimprc. The system wide equivalent is in /etc/gimprc. The system wide file
       is parsed first and the user gimprc can override the system settings.  /etc/gimprc_user is
       the default gimprc placed in users' home directories the first time gimp is run.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/gtkrc - users set of gimp-specific GTK config settings.	Options  such  as
       widget color and fonts sizes can be set here.

       /etc/gimp/1.2/gtkrc - sytem wide default set of gimp-specific GTK config settings.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/ideas - lists all images that have been opened or saved using Gimp.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/menurc - user's set of keybindings.

       /etc/gimp/1.2/menurc - system wide set of keybindings.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/parasiterc  - Description of all available gimp parasites. This is file is
       recreated everytime gimp starts up.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/sessionrc - This file takes session-specific info (that is info, you  want
       to  keep  between  two  gimp-sessions).	You  are not supposed to edit it manually, but of
       course you can do. This file will be entirely rewritten every time you quit the	gimp.  If
       this file isn't found, defaults are used.

       /etc/gimp/1.2/unitrc  -	default  user unit database. It contains the unit definitions for
       centimeters, meters, feet, yards, typographic points and typographic picas and  is  placed
       in users home directories the first time the gimp is ran.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/unitrc  -  This file contains your user unit database. You can modify this
       list with the unit editor. You are not supposed to edit it manually, but of course you can
       do.  This file will be entirely rewritten every time you quit the gimp.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/plug-ins - location of user installed plugins.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/pluginrc  -  plugin  initialization  values  are stored here. This file is
       parsed on startup and regenerated if need be.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/modules - location of user installed modules.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/tmp - default location that gimp uses as temporary space.

       /usr/share/gimp/1.2/brushes - system wide brush files.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/brushes - user created and installed brush files. These files are  in  the
       .gbr (gimp brush) format.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/generated_brushes  -  Brushes  generated  and saved from the brush dialog.
       These files are in the .vbr (gimp vector brush) format.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/curves - Curve profiles and presets as saved from the Curves tool.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/gimpressionist - Presets and user created brushes and  papers  are  stored

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/levels - Level profiles and presets as saved from the Levels tool.

       /usr/share/gimp/1.2/palettes  - the system wide palette files. The files are copied to the
       user palettes directory when gimp is first ran to allow the user to modify  the	palettes.
       This directory is not searched for palettes by default.

       $HOME/.gimp-1.2/palettes  - copies of the system palette files as well as user created and
       modified palette files.

       Any bugs found should be reported to  the  Gimp	Developer  mailing  list  at  gimp-devel-
       oper@xcf.berkeley.edu or you may want to make use of the online bug-tracking system avail-
       able on the web at http://bugs.gnome.org/db/pa/lgimp.html or submit a bug  report  to  the
       system via http://www.xach.com/gimp/news/bugreport.html

       Before  reporting  bugs,  please  check to see if the bug is mentioned in the FAQ's or the
       mailing list archive. See the section on Other Info for locations of these.

       When reporting Gimp bugs, it is important to include a reliable way to reproduce the  bug,
       version	number of Gimp (and probably GTK), OS name and version, and any relevant hardware
       specs. It is also very important to include as much info as possible about the Xserver the
       problem was found on including at least server name, the visual, and the bit depth.

       If  a  bug  is causing a crash, it is very useful if a stack trace can be provided. And of
       course, patches to rectify the bug are even better.

       The canonical place to find GIMP info is at http://www.gimp.org/.  Here you can find links
       to  just  about	every  other  gimp site, tutorials, data sets, mailing list archives, and

       There is also a Gimp User Manual available at http://manual.gimp.org/ that goes into  much
       more detail about the interactive use of Gimp.

       The latest version of Gimp and the gtk libs is always available at ftp://ftp.gimp.org/.
