Basic Image Scaling in GIMP

2

And once again, another tutorial on how to use GIMP.  Grasp the quick-n-easy way of downsizing your image to a smaller resolution, using the completely free, open source GNU Image Manipulation program.

Working at Sheetz now.  Just finished day 8 of work.  It’s going well – there’s a lot to learn and get the knack of doing (Sheetz Bro’s Coffee mixes, including mochas, cappuccino, smoothies, the Red Alert, and so forth.  Then there’s all the sandwich making, and of course sweeping, mopping, swiping, washing, taking out the garbage… but on the bright side, you get free self-serve coffee!  …Yipee!)

Don’t let this happen to you – a lack of sleep, too much computer, and no coffee can ruin a man.

What with the filters having run out and not being in the mood for the bitter instant white tea, I’ve settled for an aloe vera drink, water, hot chocolate, black cherry tea… well, let’s just say I’m not too bad off. (more…)
