  • uniysis license for gimp

    I've been checking out this free software called gimp. I'd like to download it but I don't want to deal with the license issue for saving .gif files. I also don't want to have to buy an image editing software such as photoshop. Bottom line I'm cheap! So my question is has anyone found a way around the license issue for gimp. I live in the u.s. and the patent expired in 2003.

    download the .GIF save plugin. simple as that. unisys sueing every person using gifs is even less realistic than the RIAA sueing every P2P user. better yet, don't use GIFs
    photoshop too expensive? use the GIMP! www.gimp.org

      Patent Expired

      The Patent on GIF images that Unisys held expired last August anyway. (Actually the patent was on the compression used in GIF images and not the images themselves).
