Nice work, I've used most of the same methods myself. I didn't think of using the selection tool to limit the editing - I sometimes overlook the obvious. I appreciate the tutorials though, mostly because I'd like to use them to teach my dad how to do this work on his own. Thanks a lot!

After viewing several videos and reading some from manual entries I was still having trouble with using the magic wandin Gimp. Your video and explanation was excellent. It was paced slow enough to clearly appreciate everything that was taking place. Thank you.

Like it a lot Rede. I'm currently trying to make headway through GIMP and am picking up a whole lot from your series. The nice thing about screencasts is the peripheral know-how one seems to pick up.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Rede
