First in a 27 video series on using the GIMP, free Photoshop clone. Series is available at http://7DollarVideoStore.com
Grab video code:
Hello, and welcome to my video on the GIMP. Now what is the GIMP? If you are familiar with Photoshop, the Gimp is basically a free Photoshop clone. Most anything you can do with Photoshop, you do with the GIMP, except have a lighter wallet, because again, the GIMP is free. It is what they call open source, so it says here it is freely distributed, and most anything that Photoshop, a several hundred dollar program can do, the GIMP can do.
As a matter of fact, the GIMP can even edit Photoshop files. So in this particular video, we are going to basically just deal with the installation process, so as you can see right here this is the site that we want to go to, and this has been newly updated. As a matter of fact, the 2.4.0 release was just released just a few days ago from the date of this video being recorded. October 24, 2007.
And GIMP.org is the site that you want to start off with, so we will go ahead and click on download, and just to sight it out here, this particular download is going to for a Windows version, and for Windows 2000, or newer. Anything 2000 or older, you got different installation to deal with, and we can cover that in a different video, but we want to go ahead and click on the GIMP 2.4.
As a matter of fact, once you get here, you can go over to older versions to take care of your Windows 95, God forbid you still have Windows 95, or 98, or ME, or any of the older versions from 2000.
Anyway, let me go ahead and click on download. I have already downloaded this to my desktop, so let us just assume we have already gone through this process, and this is installation icon here, so now then, just another side note too. Before you install anything, it is a good idea to go ahead any Windows programs, and if you have any virus software open, just to feel comfortable if you want to, you can go ahead and scan it with your anti-virus, but be sure and shut down your anti-virus before you do any installation. Not just with GIMP, but just with anything just kind of a side note there.
Anyway, double click on the icon, just go on and read all that if you would like, and then click all next, you can definitely read all that if you would like.
I am going to pause the video until this is done. Okay, now that the installation is complete, this is what we get, and you cans see launch the GIMP, and click on finish.
