Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Thank you for your valued response.

 

Form our team following changes are required/suggested, then GIMP would be the 
best fit to be used by the print media companies instead of using expensive 
software’s.

 

Any help/suggestion achieving the below mentioned 
changes/suggestions/workaround is appreciated.

GIMP is an open source software project, which means you are free to modify it 
as you like and use it for any purpose in accordance with this license 
http://www.gimp.org/about/COPYING 

 

To modify GIMP, the easiest way is probably to download the source code 
repositories from git: 

https://git.gnome.org/browse/gimp

 

Other relevant developer information can be found here:

http://www.gimp.org/develop/

 

It might also be noted that GIMP is a very large and very complex program with 
a LOT of features. Before you invest the time to modify anything, it's probably 
a good idea to explore whether or not the changes you want to make are 
necessary for your project. Often you can achieve what you need with features 
that GIMP comes with, or by writing extensions rather than trying to change 
GIMP's core code.

 

If the features that you want are not present you can always suggest them to 
the community as well, some ideas are popular enough to make it into the 
project.

 

Welcome to the GIMP community, and good luck. :)

Good luck. :)
