Fixing Photos

Another one of my hobbies is digital photography. It's so wonderful to be able to snap picture after picture and not have to worry about using up anything but batteries. The materials that follow are step-by-step tutorials working with a program called GIMPShop. It is an image editor similar to Adobe Photoshop, except that it is open source and free!

Whether you have taken this class or not, feel free to use the resources and either refresh your memory or learn about something brand new!
