What can GIMP do? The better question might be, what can’t it do? It’s available for Windows, Mac, and Linux computers and does just about anything Photoshop can do. But there’s no subscription fee. There’s no fee at all.

You can crop, resize, rotate, adjust colors, create layers. It’s pretty much endless depending on what types of plug-ins you choose to install in the highly-customizable program.
