  1. I looked at GIMP, and if it’s a GNU product, it’s probably good stuff. I knew the people that started GNU many moons ago at MIT.

    Freefoto sounded good, but 1) too many ads 2) too long to load 3) too many stipulations about photo usage. Ah, well, there’s always good ole Wikimedia Commons.

  2. Leora: I am glad one person read this post! I have downloaded GIMP but haven’t had the time to look at it seriously. I like Wikimedia Commons too but sometimes can’t find what I am looking for in certain areas.
