Meet the GIMP #40: Talking Head!

I draw the Winner of the Monchrome Challenge with help from the BSAG and risk my life on the tracks of the tram to show you the difference between the distortions made by faults imperfections of the lens and the unavoidable effects of falling lines. In between you learn something about the nasty symbolic of swords in the hands of old statues.

Then I cover again the area of layer masks. I try to clarify the blunder I have made in the last episode and show you a (for me) new way to colourize a layer with the bucket fill tool. If you have read the comment from David Gowers for the last show you’ll know what I am talking about.

Finally I announce a surprise for the next episode and ask again for donations for the Libre Graphics Meeting.

What do you think about the “real”video in the show? If I do it again, it will have a better quality (tripod…. ). Is this worth the extra large file size? Shall I include stuff about photography or stick to GIMP et al.?

There is no extra file for download this week.
