The GIMP

So begins the long week of work – First off we start with a small dose of Databases followed up by a shot of Function Programming then finishing off with a SEG Design deadline. Fun huh?! I doubt I’ll be having much time this week to review any more wacky films although I have a few queued up for download later in the week.

Had a play with quite a useful program this week, namely GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) which is basically the Linux answer to Adobe Photoshop. If you’ve ever used Photoshop then you should be able to pick up the GIMP fairly quickly and for a free open-source effort it’s excellent. It has many of the features Photoshop users have become accustomed to: the ability to create layers, add filters, feather, add text, and animate so is defiantly a viable alternative.
