Business usage of GIMP

Greetings,

My name is Ivan Lopez and I have been using your amazing software for a while now.

I have a question, and want to apologize in advance in case this is not the correct place to send a message to.

I have recently been working on the company communication area and have proposed to my manager that we change from our editing software (MS PowerPoint) to GIMP, since we sometimes need to cut and apply corrections to some images.

We contacted HQ and it told us there would be no problem changing, but it asked for us to contact the software's company for confirmation of usage in business environments.

We do not sell ads or things related, the only thing we would use your software for is in-company communication of events photos, meetings, posters and so on.

I would very much appreciate your response, and wish for you to keep up the great work!

Best regards,

Ivan Lopez, HR Specialist

You're welcome to use GIMP for all the purposes you mentioned. In fact we do not pose any restrictions on the use of the program.

Certain restrictions apply if you're working with the Source Code of GIMP, but that does not seem to be the case here.

Please feel free to use GIMP as you wish.

Bye, Simon

Hi Ivan,

from the official FAQ:

Can I use GIMP commercially? Yes, you can. GIMP is free software, it doesn’t put restrictions on the kind of work you produce with it.

And if you save money with Gimp, feel free to donate some of the saved money: https://www.gimp.org/donating/

Regards, Tobias

If you are looking to replace PowerPoint in your organization I would suggest looking at the Impress Presentation portion of LibreOffice (also available in OpenOffice, afaik, but may have a slightly different name). GIMP can be used to generate images that can be used with the presentation part of LibreOffice/OpenOffice.

Cheers!

Kevin.
