Creating an image stack with GIMP

The free and open source alternative to Photoshop is GIMP. I'm quite liking GIMP these days. Give it time, flush that Adobe hole in your pocket out of your system, and GIMP comes through with the goods. Here, I am using GIMP to create a simple image stack with layers. I use image stacks for slide show type resources.

Obviously your not a designer. If you think Gimp is an alternative to Photoshop you need your head read.

Actually, I am a designer. While Photoshop is indeed a powerful program - GIMP is free and continues to improve. It certainly does most if not all the things I need to get done with image editing. Also, just the other day, GIMP recovered a massive Photoshop file I was working on after it corrupted when Photoshop crashed. Was a big relief to recover that file!
