Working With The Gimp

Filed under
GIMP

There are lots of graphics software applications out there. Photoshop is the big dog on the block and many professional artists, cartoonists, and film makers use it for a variety of tasks. There are also graphics applications that rival Photoshop and do just about as much as Photoshop but a t a lower cost. It all depends on the job you’re tackling and how many digital tools you require.

I’ve found that The Gimp does just about all I need when producing my comic features. And the costs is much less than Photoshop. Gimp is free. And because I use Linux, The Gimp already comes pre-installed. When you install Linux, Gimp is right there ready to go to work for you.

Gimp has all the neat little filters, bells, and whistles that all the other graphics software apps have. I use ‘em all, but one filter, specifically, comes in quite handy when drawing cartoons.

Don’t let Microsoft exploit Bangladesh’s IT talent

Open-source software is effectively a public good and owned by everyone who uses it. So there is no conflict of interest in the Bangladesh government paying programmers to fix bugs and security holes in open-source software, because the Bangladesh government would be as much an owner of the software as anyone else, and benefit from the increased use-value of the improved software as much as any other user.
