Karin Kylander and Olof S Kylander, Frozenriver Digital Design
Who should attend: Web creators, programmers and designers who have a limited experience of image manipulation and creation. People who use Windows programs or old fashioned UNIX/Linux programs to create graphics in an otherwise UNIX/Linux-based environment. Participants should have basic knowledge and understanding of UNIX/Linux, programming, web technologies and networking, but expertise is not required.
This tutorial teaches how to create graphics effectively in what might be the most powerful tool existing in the UNIX/Linux world, namely the GIMP. The GIMP is a Open Source image manipulation and a worthy contender to Adobe PhotoShop, when it comes to online distributed graphics. GIMP has exceptionally strong support of scripting with several languages available. But that's not - all GIMP also has some features rarely found in other image manipulation programs, such as database integration. This tutorial will unleash the power of GIMP and its extensions.
