Mon Sep 3 19:38:03 IST 2001
Hello List members,
I am happy to tell you that the first set of GIMP tutorials named
GIMP-Jr.K.G is ready. This set is meant for absolute beginners.
The next set of tutorials is also being formed. The effects that these
tutorials have given are very-very encouraging.*
This set of tutorials gives information on how to use the basic tools
available with GIMP.
Usage of Rectangular selection, Fuzzy Selection, Blend, Fill, pattern
fill and other such tools are covered.
Usage of Some Filters and Script-Fu's are also covered.
Creating your own brush and patterns is also dealt with.
This is a set of ten tutorials where each and every step has been
covered and allows even beginners to easily use the GIMP software.
Total size :45 MB.
* Karnala-GIMP* (partially over, text formatting, tutorial checks under
Did you know that using simple Script-Fu's of GIMP, you can make more
than a billion different web themes!!!
This second set of tutorials focuses on how the tools available with
GIMP can be used to make powerful web themes in a short span of time.
Some 25 exclusive, photographs of Karnala, Monkeys and karnala
surroundings, form the base of the presentation tutorials.
Topics covered include:
Easy creation of several types of custom buttons, headers, banners,
arrows and bullets.
Easy creation of Image maps using the ImageMap filter.
Making custom buttons.
Total Size 68 MB.
Time taken for these tutorials are around three months in total.
Plus some expenses, have been incurred.
I am looking for some compensation for these tutorials so that I end up
at least in a no-loss/no-profit situation.
I doubt weather magazines may be interested in publishing tutorials for
a non-commercial software like GIMP. Anyway, I plan to approach them.
Any other ideas are also welcome.
