GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

Group Info

Welcome To Encounter-Art

When I came to DA, I was still learning about art, and photo-manipulation. Im still learning, :D who isnt :D, but I wanted to form this group, for 2 main reasons; So that beginners
can learn tips and tricks and have someone there for them to help, and to showcase their art, so they can gain the recognition they need.

The group is open to anyone, you need only note me and tell me if they want to teach ( with tutorials etc...) or learn new techniques.

There will be awards for both the art side and the teaching side.
They will also be featured monthly on the front of the group page.
It can be placed in your journal etc....

Sheesh :D

:wow: I never, in my wildest dreams, thought that encounter would grow the way it has. To my contributors, thank you, I really appreciate the effort. To the members, we couldn't do it without you and the contributors. thank you for your quality art and though to submit your work to us.

To my admin team, especially :iconyamatai:, you guys rock. You are always here when I am not, and I truly appreciate what you have done for the group. :hug:

I have asked members what response they have gotten for their artwork since joining encounter, but I will ask here so that I don't forget anyone. IS there anything we can do to make encounter better? ways we can increase your artwork exposure? Let me know, send me a note and let's make encounter better.

Once again, thank you to everyone.

:iconadreamrage: dreamrage.
