The Artist�s Guide to GIMP Effects by Michael J. Hammel

The Artist’s Guide to GIMP Effects by Michael J. Hammel is now off the press and will be released to the market next month. Published by No Starch Press, the book will retail at $44.95.

The beautiful 4-color book shows GIMP users how to harness all of the image editor’s powerful features. The GIMP is a Linux application that rivals the powers of Adobe Photoshop. And it’s free. Free, not only because you can get it for free, but more importantly, free as in freedom from an 800-pound gorilla.

Hammel’s extensively illustrated, step-by-step tutorials are perfect for hands-on learning and experimentation. It will teach you how to accomplish most everything you did with Photoshop in GIMP.

And if you’re a photographer interested in Linux resources for photography, you can start by reading Garrison Hoffman’s post as he describes his own workflow, or RW Hawkins’ Linux Tools for Professional Photography. There’s also a useful post here by Peter Gawthrop.
