We have had a long chat in our office and we wanted to tell you all about our choice for out “Software of the Year” award for 2010. The piece of software we have decided to award this to is “The Gimp”. This is essentially an image editor that contains just about all the advanced tools you would find in any decent image editor. There are tools for touching up old photos, designing your company logo quickly and simply, creating interesting and eye catching design pices for your website and many more features. What makes this standout? Well it is distributed under a GNU license, and therefore is free. Just download and install, currently it is available for both Linux (it’s home operating system) and now Windows, including Windows 7.
