Thanks so much. I'm a new Gimp user! I opened a separate window, pulled up an old damaged photo and did the tutorial along with you. Your manner and technique made it so easy for me to follow and understand. By the way, my other favorite hobby is genealogy!!

Again, thanks

Hi, I'm only in the second part of the tutorial but is great so far, using Gimp is awesome I found it really useful for all my little game image tweaking and now want to store some old family photos.

Thanks a lot!

Many, many thanks for posting this video. This was a very clear demonstration and was very useful to me. Thank you for taking the time to do this. I really appreciate it.

will use this again. thank you

4. anonymous Sun, 26 Apr 2009 00:52

great, helped a lot!

Very good. This video was very informative and easy to follow. More so then the first video on subject.'ve taught me something new again :-) I've never used the 'clone' tool in GIMP (but then again, I've never tried to repair a torn photo before either!).

It is very nice seeing you tidy up all the creases...that's an hour or two well spent I think.

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
