GIMPShop dot Com

That subject line was hard for me to write. I'm too used to writing GIMPShop dot Net.

It seems I am not the only fan of GIMPShop that is willing to create a full-on site to proclaim it. My new friend Josh has decided to throw his hat into the ring as well. And I would like to welcome him to the Net.

His site is new, and he is still in the process of putting it up - but it is functional. It's a very simple, straightforward site promoting GIMPShop - complete with download links and explainations of what GIMPShop is.

Some may question why I'm linking to a competing site - much less actually promoting it - well, I don't see it as a competion. Both GIMPShop dot Net and dot Com have the same goal - to promote and explain GIMPShop. I think of GIMPShop dot Com (and he probably would type it simply as a companion site to GIMPShop dot Net rather than a competitor.

Welcome Josh. Let's get the word out - there's a free, cross-platform, open source, easy-to-use, uber powerful, image editor out there, and the world needs to know about it. 8^)

GIMPShop on a Flash Drive

Our good friend Tonya (aka the Oregonian) has done it again. This time she gives step by step instructions on how to put GIMPShop for Windows on a USB drive. That means you can take GIMPShop with you whereever you go, and as long as you use a computer with Windows and a USB port, then you can use GIMPShop without having to install it. Very handy stuff.

Open Source software rocks!

Tonya wanted me to add that:

GIMPShop for Windows uses 31mb on the flashdrive after the installation file has been deleted.

With the installation file still on the drive and GIMPShop installed, total usage is 38mb.

So, if you've got anything bigger than a 32 MB card, you're all set. :-)

GIMP 2.2.11 Now Available!

GIMP 2.2.11 is now available. This is a bug-fix release in the stable 2.2 series. You can download it here.

Could a GIMPShop 2.2.11 be around the corner? Perhaps a Universal Binary version? We'll have to wait and see what Scott has in store.

Drop Shadow Tutorials for GIMPShop

Tonya aka "Oregonian" has created some easy-to-follow tutorials on how to create drop shadows for both text and graphics using GIMPShop for Windows. The tutorials include instructions for how to do the same using GIMP for Linux (in case you don't like the Photoshop-esqeness of GIMPShop).

You can read the tutorials here.

Tonya promises more tutorials are on the way. Thanks Tonya!
