An overview of this open-source graphics program, with a focus on photographic issues.

The Miscellaneous tools do a number of useful things without fitting neatly into a category. The Paths tool takes Selections up a notch and also lets you add interesting effects. Zoom is one you would use every day, and Measure is handy in some situations. Finally, GEGL Operations are the future of all GIMP development

contribution back

Thanks for the show and the Patreon link. I would like to give a little to some projects too, but sometimes it is a bit tricky to find a way to regularly donate. For example, I started using Fedora, and so does my wife, but could not even find a one time donation button.

Donating to Fedora

The Fedora Wiki page ( explains that they are not looking for money, which I suspect is because they have strong corporate support. I would guess Ubuntu is much the same. But there is more than one way to support a project you like. How about doing some shows on Fedora, why you like it, how to configure it, and so on.
