Meet the GIMP #101: Tablets

A Graphics Tablet is a great input device for working with GIMP. You’ll see what to look for (pressure sensitivity and size) and how to integate them into GIMP. My tablet is from Wacom, the market leader. But a lot of other good ones are around too.

At the end of the show I have a essage for the German speaking audience. There is no German Meet the GIMP, but Berhnhard Stockmann (devvv) from and has made a nice video DVD about GIMP. Also a DVD about building WEB sites. Both are available for 29.95€ in book stores and online.

I gave the GIMP DVD to Boris form Happy Shooting, a German language podcast about photography. Boris (nsonic) and Chris (Tips from the Top Floor) are well known podcasters and as a team they are simply great. Useful information and a lot of “dumme Sprüche”. Just now there are no shows, Chris is trecking in the Himalaya and the SatPhone broke down.
