all is ok.
I am extremely NEW to photography. We just bought a camera in the fall and are going to learn to use it and hopefully get some good images. Who knows, might even get a few shots that I can frame after a time. Anyway, after watching a bunch of YouTube Videos about Adobe products, and after seeing how expensive adobe actually is, I Googled Lightroom 5 Alternatives and found Gimp. So, now I will start learning this software. I guess it's got to be good because I can see the number of downloads, almost 24000 this week alone. I just installed on a Win7 Ult 64 with no issues. I'd like to take a minute to THANK ALL DEVELOPERS and CONTRIBUTORS for all of their hard work.
Who could think such an excellent professional-level software could exist, with such a user and support community.. and for FREE?
