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!)

Anyway.  Figuring out life.  If you get the hang of it, lemme know and we’ll take a walk in the spring forests and talk it over.  ‘Twould be nice to go on a hike… such chill, lovely weather.

I’ve been making video tutorials on basic GIMP usage recently, and this one is about how to convert image file types quickly and easily.  Enjoy!

And oh, it’s my first day on the new job tomorrow!  Will be doing 5 hours of training at Sheetz.

New Tutorial: “Photo Cropping In GIMP”

Recently I have been recording tutorials for a new series, called “GIMP Basics,” which, surprisingly enough, will cover the fundamentals of how to edit an image in the Gnu Image Manipulation Program, or as it’s also known: GIMP.

Please enjoy this first tutorial, on Photo Cropping – and if you find it useful, feel free to pass the link around!

Removing people from the background

Off To Cleveland Again :)

I’m heading off in a few minutes to meet up with my ride to Cleveland again, but this time some friends and I are going to help a family move from Cleveland to West Virginia!  I should be away for a couple days, helping load their truck and whatever else needs being done.

Recently I helped a friend prepare a photo for a contest (sadly I didn’t send it back to her until it was too late – it was taking forever to attach the file.)  Anyhow, the job was relatively simple: remove the people from the background and make the image look stunning.  Well, I didn’t get around to making it look awesome, but the people sure have disappeared.

She was very pleased with the result, and is even going to frame it, so all is well. :) I edited it in GIMP 2.6.6 and used the Clone and Heal tools, as well as blur.

Well, I had better pack for this trip. A ton has happened since this post and my last, including working on my website, (the main part of this site,) visiting Colonial Williamsburg, starting private vlogging, and so forth.

God bless and see you next time!
