GIMP image editor

Recommended Posts

Anyone else here using GIMP? 

Its a free image/photo editor written by a heap of geeks.  I have used Photoshop CS4 ages ago but GIMP is just as good for general users like me.  Plus PS was a pirate version cos the actual software package cost was huge for a hobbyist. Its a pretty impressive package given that it is free.

Anyway, I have just done a couple of designs, made some vector art, transparencies, and some photo editing.  It also has some great 'how to' tutorials on youtube .

Was wondering if anyone else had used it.

Yeah, I've had it for a while, not sure how long but maybe 2010-15 sometime.  I really like what it can do, nice to know I'm not the only one.

Not cars [working on a coffee mug setup for my missus for Xmas actually]...but the spotted horse wasn't originally in this photo...hard to tell he wasn't though.  I haven't quite got the comparative size - I think he has to be made a bit bigger [which is easy to do]  - but I'm still working on it.

LOL, my newest laptop computer is about 8 years old and mainly lives in the bottom draw.

It comes out every so often to resize pictures and rip new music cd's so I can throw them on a hard drive.

No GIMPS for me then.

Cheers

not sure but I think GIMP will still operate OK on XP and up,  used to anyway.

I don't think he was talking about how old the PC is wrt to whether the GIMP will run on it.  I think he was saying that he is so "hella modern" (TM) that he uses his phone for everything and only pulls the laptop out on rare occasions.  Which is his perogative.  If my phone had a mouse and keyboard and 24" monitor, I'd use it for everything too.

More like the computer is so old it takes 15 minutes to do anything after clicking on something.

My phone makes phone calls and does the googles, but sometimes I take a pic and they are too big for some forum pages.

The computer has that editor thingie that makes the pics "smaller".

I would rather spend money on car parts and alcohol than get a new computer, which will sit in the bottom draw and only get used when I rip discs or want to resize  a pic.

I've never really been a computer person, I was hoping for a easy fix using my phone.

And if I ask the missus or kid to use their one they would be all like "see, I told you you need a new computer", which would make me walk outside and yell at clouds....

    • Far out, people still post here occasionally!
    • I still await Startrack for my Balancer. In the meantime, my lovely girlfriend sold her Turbo MX5. Her criteria was "Something Japanese, Fun, but a hatchback" (cause she doesnt like 100kmh highways in a MX5, and tends to go to bunnings a lot) Basically my Megane, but Japanese. Because she is blessed, not cursed, this is now in the driveway, 1 day later. Bonus Extras (that she and seller didn't notice, but I did) Genuine P1 Buddy Clubs Genuine Mugen Wang Short shifter of some sort (shifts amazingly, def not stock - we test drove a few cars) Aftermarket Helical LSD (Quaife?) One of the other ones we tested had an Intake, for max VTEC sounds. So we're getting one of those. As for how it drives, I have now experienced 3 different cars in this household I should primarily drive around instead of my R34. I googled bolt on supercharger kits for the K20, which was the inspiration for my mate's supercharged BMW, and found that when I overlaid a video of someone doing a 50-250kmh pull, and my own video at Sandown in the LS Skyline... they were identical in acceleration. Every frame of the entire thing. It was eerie. My lovely gf is extremely happy, and I am too. They really do drive excellently, and the fit and finish and interior is just awesome. I am more excited to drive this thing around than my own car, which I hope to high heaven is just because it's new to me and a great deal/hilariously good buy. However this completes our household change from Turbo life to N/A Purity!
    • Yeah, it's a real thing  But isn't that what hobbies are for
    • Yes, a brand new box needs to wear in a little, and the "big box" is actually pretty beefy compared to most. Just treat it nice for 500klm then change the oil, see if it improves
    • Just put in a brand new RB25DET big box, auto conversion. Last time I drove manual was my 260Z, 15 years ago. But this box seems a bit notchy shifting up. Are new gearboxes like this? Do they have a break in period? Also noticed a vibration on the clutch pedal when shifting close to red line. It is R34 box, with a pull clutch. I installed a new Nismo sports clutch with a slightly lighter flywheel. I am running Penrite Pro Gear 75W-90. Cheers
