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. MSI has several programs that can be used for image manipulation; 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.

The tutorial serves varying interest groups ranging from medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, material sciences, geophysics, astronomy, and engineering.
