Computer Science-GIMP

Gimp is an open source image editing tool, similar in functionality to adobe's photoshop. Thus its use is in image processing, in the creation and editing of images from a variety of sources. Images are treated as being in layers, capable of editing an arbitrary number of them to form a composite image. Gimp also has animation support through plugins. However the support for Gimp due to lack of manpower has caused releases to be unsynchronized for the different platforms it supports. Originally it was supported on windows, mac, and linux however the versions on mac and windows have fallen behind the linux releases.

Gimp also requires downloading XQuartz, which you can get here, or you can let the automatic download occur as part of start up.
