Image manipulation includes such functions as cropping, rotating, resizing, adding text, photo retouching, color conversion and much more. Image manipulation can be used when preparing photos for print or the web or when creating animation. There are several programs at the Institute that can be used to do image manipulation and this tutorial will introduce you to three of those programs.

Adobe Photoshop is the most popular commercial package for image manipulation. ImageMagick is a free collection of programs to display, manipulate and convert images from one format to another. ImageMagick can be used from a GUI or from the command line. GNU Image Manipulation Program (Gimp) is a free general image processing program for editing images.

This tutorial serves varying interest groups including medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, material sciences, geophysics, astronomy and engineering.
