GIMP is an open-source image editing program, one of the most popular image-editing programs. It is supported by a huge open-source community that is open in every aspect – development, source, sharing and participation.
As is common to open-source applications, GIMP too has a huge repository of plugins, scripts, brushes and gradients (we’ve already covered Top 40 GIMP plugins). The open-source enthusiasts pour hundreds of hours into developing the application and its add-ons for no cost, and shares them generously with the community.
And what better way for me to admire GIMP than by presenting a list of some amazing, beautiful and stunning brushes? The name, link and description of each brush are given just below each illustrative image. There are also sections linking to huge GIMP collections and further resources aimed at every group from novice to expert.
