Meet the GIMP #50: Comics

Meet the GIMP #50: Comics

Posted in Graphics

This 50th episode is 40 minutes long. I am not sure if this  “Double Length” is caused by the complexity of the work or simply a bit of laziness. But I declare “celebrating the 50th” as the official reason for this. The log files of my blog show from where clicks are coming in. One of the most successful linkers is Jeff (jeffegg2) on flickr. He drops a comment with ...

Meet the GIMP #49: Making a Hat

Meet the GIMP #49: Making a Hat

Posted in Graphics

As nothing catastrophic has happened this week I’ll continue trying to make simple graphics with GIMP. You see one of them on the left. This is done with the selection tools, working with paths and gradient fills. If you need something more complicated, go to inkscape and the tutorials from Richard and heathenx. You know the proverb about screws and hammers…. One tip: Always use la...

Meet the GIMP #48: Straight Lines (and a not so straight life)

Meet the GIMP #48: Straight Lines (and a not so straight life)

Posted in Graphics

This one is really short and made in a hurry. I show you a surprise parcel and my plan for a vacation in Croatia. Then it is a bit about GIMP - how to draw simple figures. I start with a straight line and end with a curved path. While editing I found a lot missing that should have been told here. Well, there will be a next episode. You can order the DVD from Derek Shaw. Price per DVD is £...

Meet the GIMP #47: Saving for the Web, CYMK or CMYK on a new server

Meet the GIMP #47: Saving for the Web, CYMK or CMYK on a new server

Posted in Graphics

Just to get you over the gap in the flow of videos here is the last one before the server dies. And it’s the first one on the new server - this posting was not in the backup because the provider killed the server one day early. All your comments are lost too. It covers CYMK modes for printing in a video of Andrew A. Gill. He tells us the why and how and what can be done with GIMP and what...

Meet the GIMP #46: Getting rid of People!

Meet the GIMP #46: Getting rid of People!

Posted in Graphics

This week I’ll answer the first search term that led according to the logs someone to "Meet the GIMP!". "Getting rid of people in GIMP" was the question. And here, about 9 months later, is the answer. I took two shots of the same scene with my point and shoot camera to remove some moving cars (the runner shown here was just an accident. But I like the idea and will do a “real”...

Today there will be something different for your ears first - thanks to John Pazdan. I like his stuff very much! Inspired by this discussion in the “Meet the GIMP!” Photogroup at 23hq, I tackle the begin- nings of monitor calibration. For an in depth look go to the page of Norman Koren You can use this web page from Cambridge in Colour for a start. Then there are tools like Monica f...

Meet the GIMP #44: Splitting myself!

Posted in Graphics

It’s a project I wanted to do for a long time - and did now without anny planning and preparation. I even forgot to take a tripod for the video camera with me. But the lab provided a clamp for Erlenmeyer flasks. Worked great. I got the idea from Allan J. Ager and Simon Taylor from the Tips from the Top Floor Forum. You can download the four finally used files and a shrinked xcf file as an...

Meet the GIMP #43: Brand New and Stone Age

Meet the GIMP #43: Brand New and Stone Age

Posted in Graphics

Brand new tech- nology meets stuff from the Stone Age, ehm… the 70’s. Rawstudio’s 1.0 release sits on the lab bench for a test run. I am impressed by the workflow and the overall appear- ance. The output in the video has some noise in it, but that was my fault. I had my camera set up to store a RAW and a JPEG image and have put both files and the camera profile into the compa...

Meet the GIMP #42: Don’t Panic!

The show starts with a live view at Gimp 2.5.0. Tobias Jakobs sent me a video about some new features and I add another one. This is alpha software, keep away if you are not helping with debugging. And never do “real work” with it. Tobias Jakobs is well known in the German Gimp community for winning an image manipulation contest ahead of all the Photoshoppers. Seefeld is in a nice a...

Meet the GIMP #41: Is it a Hammer?

Posted in Graphics

This week I am too lazy to make a show. So I have outsourced the work to heathenx from the famous Inkscape Screencast. Even more exploiting him, I asked for a vector based SVG version of the “Meet the GIMP!” logo. I made the original logo with GIMP, thinking it was the right tool. I found out, that I had used a screwdriver to hit a nail. In this case Inkscape is the tool of choice. ...
