Hello, Anybody Home?

Post#1 by mahvin » 23 Oct 2016, 15:56


Howdy folks! I started using GIMP in February of 1996. It was version .60 at the time. I recall all the frustrations of using Microsoft Paint, the lack of versatility or tools, and then GIMP was just finding it's footing. 20 years of using GIMP all started over my inability to afford Adobe Photoshop while a student in college. It's a thing to see and watch as a software that merely started out as a second-choice project evolved into something much bigger than anyone ever anticipated. It has been bringing people together in ways none of us could have ever imagined. Just look at YouTube or Google "GIMP" and you will witness a whole new world open up.

LONG LIVE GIMP and all the great people who support it! It's truly been a most fascinating journey!

Hello Mahvin! Glad to see you here. I love it when there are experts around to figure out what I did wrong or not at all. Its wonderful that you are joining the group of them. Now I have two great places to get help!

Hi Mahvin, I had looked at your web site All Things Gimp a long time ago and you had a article about gimp tubes. It was a lot of information but I never really figured it out. Could you possibly post a result of using a tube ? It mentioned being animated but I only wound up with a single image using the leaf brushes you had posted.

Hi Tom,

Sure, I could expand on using tubes from Paint Shop Pro. I'll try and tweak the older post and sort of push out more information on using them. All tubes actually are, are catalogs of several images in one transparent frame, that is cut into even sections and converted into multiple images, hence why we call them animated brushes in GIMP. Be watching for an updated post from me soon.

Pat625: I hardly consider myself an expert, but I do go head to head with Photoshop users about the pros and cons of GIMP quite often. What I love to see is when people finally "open their mind" and just let art happen. Art is not perfection, it's freedom. The Golden Wilbur is just a sincere way to tell people like Tin, Ofnuts, and others that we appreciate them.

Admin: It's me one and the same. I've been away for awhile, mainly traveling all over, and now I'm sort of getting back into the "kick back and relax" mood.
