Meet the GIMP #53: In the USSR the Posters are watching YOU!

I have to do some corrections on last weeks episode. As I wrote in the update, I had made a blunder with the last layer.

Then we have another video from Andrew A. Gill, the guy who enlightened us about CYMK. He takes on the Comic style from episode 50 and tries to copy a style used by Soviet propaganda and today by Shepard Fairey. +Link +Link

The image on top of this post has been made by Andrew. It’s not exactly Soviet Propaganda.
Then I have a challenge for you. I got set of images from Ted. He is researching family history. So he has to work a lot with reproductions of old documents. The rules are easy: You are happy about what you get and you don’t complain about quality. Here is a set of images (11MB) for you to cut your teeth in. The goal is to enhance readability. Please document your steps. Next week I’ll tell you how to report about your results.

Finally there are some news about GiMP 2.5.2.
