What a pretty GIMP!

01/06/2011 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

What a pretty GIMP! – An Introduction to Image Manipulation

There is nothing wrong with your viewing apparatus. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour…

TV-style spookiness aside… For this talk we’ll cover simply how to use GIMP: The GNU Image Manipulation Program.

There’s far far far far far too much to cover for the 16-years or so of development that has gone into GIMP. Hence this talk will be more of a demonstration of how to do useful everyday tasks for cleaning up or modifying typical point-and-shoot pictures. Depending on audience interest and time (and beer),  we may also move on to cover some of the more “pro”/”advanced”  features that GIMP offers.

The “Photoshop”  of the open-source world? Here,  you too can become GIMPed!
