For this section I decided to use GIMP. I have to say that I really did like this tool. As someone who normally uses Photoshop, I could see a lot of similarities between the two tool. GIMP is certainly a powerful tool, especially since it is free. I think it will be one that I return to in the future to play with some more!

The original picture was cropped and resized using Photoshop before I started this part. So my main focus was to play around with some of the artistic features that it held. I had a lot of fun with the project and below are some of my favorite pictures using the various filters that were offered.
