PSPI: Running Photoshop plug-ins in GIMP PSPI is a GIMP plug-in that runs 3rd-party Photoshop plug-in filters. I wrote it in 2001, and it initially worked on Windows only. Then nothing much happened until March 2006 when it became available also on Linux. All that was needed, basically, was for somebody to try building it using winegcc. Possibly building and running it on Linux might have worked already years ago, but nobody tried... Thanks to Mukund for trying it on Linux and reporting the success!

GIMP Video Tutorials GIMP stands for the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a free web graphics editor. You can resize images, compress images, layer images, create graphics and more using the GIMP. For those on a budget or just wanting to play with web graphics design before investing in a more expensive web graphics editor (like Photoshop or FireWorks), then it's well worth learning how to use the GIMP first. Because many of the tools work the same in Photoshop and Fireworks. And unless you're going to become a professional graphic design artist, then the GIMP might just have everything you need. 127 Useful Gimp Scripts and Plugins While I do record Photoshop and After Effects tutorials from time to time, lately my focus has been on my Gimp works.

color pickin chooser.. download a color picker to use on your windows desktop, or in your own AutoIt applications.. The free version of Color Pickin Chooser is nice, but it doesn't play nice with modern Windows, and lacks a few features I (and others) still wanted in a color picker. More work was required. Enter Color Pickin Chooser pro.. Color Pickin Chooser pro works flawlessly in Windows 7 and Windows 8 (and the family of Windows OS around them). The live magnifier is snappy at any magnification (yes, you can choose now!)

Getting Around in GIMP There are a ton of tutorials already available on the internet for using GIMP to do different things (heres some from gimp.org, Gimptalk, and Meet the GIMP for example). I noticed that though many of these tutorials are great, they didn't necessarily meet my needs for wanting to do high quality post-processing of my personal photos (with the exception of Meet the GIMP). I've cobbled together a handful of techniques for photo retouching, and thought I would try to share some of them with everyone here.
Julie Heffernan from Julie Heffernan’s Constructions of Self Julie Heffernan creates sensuous figurative painting, like co-Yale MFAS, John Currin and Linda Yuskavage, but her luminous oils are patently unique among them and most working artists today. A Victorian impetus to conjoin, edging toward pastiche, creates artfully staged Surrealist environments. They avoid the mawkish or macabre by virtue of an evocative 17th century Baroque styling and the dignity with which she handles her primary subject, herself. Good construction is essential to the success of such works, built of disparate things suggesting disparate philosophies and ages. Yet the finished product is seamless, making it easy for the viewer to willfully suspend disbelief in the face of rampant artifice.
