    GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a freely distributed piece of software suitable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It is a powerful piece of software with capabilities not found in any other free software product. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, or an image format converter.

    GIMP is modular, expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted. Version 2.0.3 is a bug-fixing release.

    Note: You will need to download both GTK+ Runtime Environment and The Gimp installers. Install GTK+ before installing The Gimp.

    Note: Please uninstall any previous development version of Gimp 1.3 and 2.0-pre before installing Gimp 2.0.4 (you can keep Gimp 1.2.5, and you can install over Gimp 2.0.0 and newer).

    Blurred edges for images

    Does the GIMP program allow you to blur the edges of images? If so, please let me know the steps involved.
    Thanks
