Cut, Crop, Resize and Clean an Image in Gimp

Resources for a Jigsaw Classroom Project 
In the course of the Jigsaw making project the student need to have reference material from which to learn the basics of digital preparation for their images. There is also Photoshop 4 Kids here at Blogger, but I wanted to list other software programs that class members may wish to acces to cut, crop, resize and clean an image.
At first this will seem like a laborious process but after a while you will see that a library is growing day by day.  We call this emerging through a collaborative project.  As the resources grow I will begin reference lists and this will make the process easier.  For now......
Let's just start with 


What is Gimp?
Gimp is a free software package available for download on the Internet. 

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely to download program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.  The program can be downloaded for either Windows or Mac Operating Systems.   The Download Page is here

In the article Co-Contributory Paradigm of an eCLISP I talk about developing resources in the context of an eCLISP. This is a project within a Community of Learning Inquiry and Studio Practice. Gradually we are gathering the resources together so that a Hybrid Reference Centre emerges from the project based learning strategies that take place.

When designing Hybrid Reference Centres you will find that certain providers come to the top of the list time and time again. Half tongue in cheek, I joke that Cream Rises and link to a jigsaw I have created Calf Sucking Jigsaw Puzzle.
