Editing your photos in Gimp

I have recently uploaded a tutorial onto my Youtube account (DaviesMediaDesign) on the basics of photo editing. I think a lot of you beginners out there will find this tutorial very useful, and the rest of you experts could still learn a thing or two!

Thanks for checking it out! There are certain functions in 2.6 that I find more fluent in my opinion- like the text editing, image scaling, and some of the other manipulation features. Perhaps I'm just used to the 2.6 interface.

Initially the new sliders (i.e. layer opacity adjustment, etc) were puzzling to me. Then I had my "well duh!" moment when someone on-list mentioned that the coarse adjustment function is active with the cursor in the top half of the slider area, the fine adjustment function in the bottom half.

The on-canvas text editor gave me cat fits, until I started playing with it in new empty images just to figure it out. Now I am starting to like it a lot better than the gadget it replaces.

I lost "on the fly" brush editing via an always-open brush editor window, but regained it via the tool options tab and a couple of user set keyboard accelerators.

Full screen mode was not as bad as I expected, but it's just not for me. So far every snag I have hit in GIMP 2.8 turns out to be either something the improved or something that moved to a more logical location.

the only thing that could (maybe) confuse people that see your video is that the color balance is giving different results now in gimp 2.8 than it was in gimp 2.6. So if someone tries it with the same photo he'll not get the same outcome.

Hmm yeah that could be a problem. Thanks for the heads up!

Yeah 2.8 is still a good program but I just got way too accustomed/attached to the way everything is laid out in 2.6. If they came out with a version of Gimp that incorporated properties found in Illustrator, like scalable vector graphics, I would make the switch.

This sounds like a job for... Inkscape!

Depending on the kind of work you do - and especially if you have found Illustrator useful - it might be very beneficial to have both Inkscape and the GIMP installed. Relatively speaking, Inkscape's bitmap editing capabilities and the GIMP's vector editing capabilities are "rudimentary."
