Have you tried GIMP? Not sure what it is? GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is free (open-source) software that has a strong user community and a robust suite of tools. It offers basic image editing like crop and color adjustment, productivity tools like batch processing, in addition to very advanced tools, which have been used in age reconstruction images in law enforcement as well as in old photo restoration. Often compared to Adobe Photoshop, it has been developed by the open-source and photography community. In this session, we’ll take a look at GIMP, explore the features, and start you on your way!

Biography ~ Robin Fay
Robin Fay became the Portal Manager/Digital Initiatives for ATCx3 Consortia (Athens, Albany and Atlanta Technical Colleges) in 2013. In this position, she has been responsible for building a digital repository of scholarly content and digitizing Athens Technical College’s Archives.

In addition to this position, she has served as a trainer for Lyrasis, SEFLIN, and TBLC, in cataloging and metadata topics (FRBR, RDA, BIBFRAME, LCSH, and authority control), among others. Her broad range of experience with cataloging and metadata (Oxford at Emory College, University of Georgia, and GALILEO projects such as the GKR and CRDL), provide her with a deep understanding of bibliographic information in a larger context.

Her book Semantic Web Technologies and Social Search for Librarians was published in 2012 (Neal Schuman/ALA TechSource). Robin is a sought after instructor and presenter with 15 years experience in teaching and training. She holds a MLIS (University of South Carolina); B.A. in English (University of Georgia), with additional graduate work in Computer Programming and Instructional Design.
