Episode 138: A mixed Bag

,----[ Quote ]
| A really mixed bag today. First I reveal my 
| criteria for selecting the images of the 
| last show and tell, why I think that 
| deleting of not so good images is a good 
| idea. Then I show a bit of how I recorded 
| the sound in Hamburg and how I used 
| Cinelerra to include the sound in the show. 
| This can be a good way to make a slide show 
| out of your images. Add the stuff from 
| âCinelerra in Japanâ and Michelleâs 
| instruction videos and you are set.

How To Use Photoshop Plugins On Linux


Revisiting some old-time favourite online freebies

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course your budget might not allow for a 
| full copy of Adobe's Photoshop (the granddaddy 
| of all image editing programs) but the open 
| source knockoff called "The GIMP" (available 
| at gimp.org)is surprisingly powerful and free.



Photoshop VS. GIMP

,----[ Quote ]
| GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation
| Program. It is a freely distributed program
| for such tasks as photo retouching, image
| composition and image authoring.
| It has many capabilities. It can be used as a
| simple paint program, an expert quality photo
| retouching program, an online batch processing
| system, a mass production image renderer, an
| image format converter, etc.


Photoshop CS4 vs. GIMP 2.6.6

,----[ Quote ]
| What GIMP 2.6.6 offers that Photoshop CS4 does
| not:
|     * You can open and edit several formats in
|     GIMP 2.6.6 which includes support for PSD
|     files. But Photoshop CS4 does not extend
|     the same support to XCD files which the
|     native file format for GIMP.
|     * You can open a layered image as a flat
|     file without merging the layers in GIMP
|     directly from the 'File' menu, which is not
|     possible in Photoshop CS4. Even after you
|     open a file without layers in GIMP, the
|     original properties are intact, unless you
|     edit and save the file.
|     * There are several plug-ins features which
|     are not usually used. This reduced system
|     resources effectively.
| Being an open source application, it supports a
| large number of add-ons and plug-ins to give
| you real time software updates. What's more you
| have complete check on your system resources as
| you will download only those functionalities
| that you need!
