The GIMP photo-editing software is free,BUT don't download it from any source not linked to the official site which is gimp.org There are other sites offering GIMP downloads but they bundle it with adware and other nasties which can take a lot of time to get rid of. I speak from experience!

Recently noticed similar problems with Skype software.

For some incomprehensible reason, SourceForge has now started bundling it's downloads with [supposedly] optional adware installers. To put it mildly, people and other software authors aren't happy e.g.

GIMP abandons SourceForge

Sourceforge.net adds adware installers provided by Ask.com

As Sgt.Phil used to say "Hey, Let's be careful out there!"

So that's SourceForge as well as C|Net. Who will be next?
