Some of us are probably addicted to capturing moments in pictures. I can understand why. It’s one of those things that help us go back to the good old days, so to speak. It’s also something that creates a ‘time machine’ for us because those pictures show us what things looked like, not just remind us of the feeling but give us the atmosphere all over again.
Anyhow, I haven’t been using GIMP much and I’ve mainly been taking pictures with my toy cameras (plastic film cameras: fisheye 2, brandless camera with panoramic mode, etc.) these …read more

References on using the GIMP

The GIMP is usually installed as the graphics editing tool in Linux distributions. You might be looking for ways to use it and you might have tried it already and thought it felt really weird. It’s because it’s different from the default graphics app in Windows which is Paint. It has more features than Paint.
