Happy Thanksgiving! (Fun with GIMP)


Another great open source program I have come across recently is GIMP. It’s as close as you can get to Adobe’s Photoshop without paying the $300 bucks! (or whatever it cost now). It will come in handy for me to design web sites, then slice them up, so they can be coded. Now I just need to figure out how to use it! I skimmed though the user manual, watched a few tutorials, and then just dove right in. I find I learn best by just doing sometimes. I cropped a picture of me from a hike my wife and I went on one weekend. Made the background transparent, and made the shadow a solid color. All very easy basic things for someone good at Photoshop or GIMP but it took me about an hour. I think it came out ok so I think I might use it on my about page. Check out GIMP, it’s great!

    Is that hoody tye-dye? Pretty cool, I just downloaded it myself. Have you checked out inkscape yet? It’s also very handy.
