Rate this resource

After introducing students to the ideas behind digital image representation, it’s now time for a hands-on approach. In this lesson, students will use appropriate software to perform a range of image manipulation functions and complete specific tasks and challenges.

Students will already have varying levels of experience and proficiency in using image editing software, so this is a flexible lesson, with a range of activities provided to suit different needs and tastes. Please note that this lesson is not intended to be a comprehensive introduction to image editing.

The instructions in the worksheets are tailored to GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program, available at gimp.org), which is open-source and cross-platform. However, the tasks can be performed with most image editing software.

This lesson is the third in a six session teaching unit provided by the National Centre for Computing Education.
