GIMP - How to use the tools, part I - [ID:762] (1/11)

in series: GIMP tutorial by example.

video tutorial by gasto, added 06/08

Series ID: 282 Video ID: 762

We quickly view the main functions of the implemented tools on the GIMP tool dialog. The elliptic selection tool, the pencil, the color selection, the darken brush, the smudge tool, etc. are just some of the helpful tools that GIMP includes. We make some experiments just to show what can be done.

amazing, but it might be more helpful to show how some of these tools can be used change, merge modify other photos or even just carton pictures.

Very good. I wish I could read spanish.

an informative tutorial with an annoying presentation. sure, the basics are covered here, but the constant interruptions, possibly due to a highly intoxicating party lingering from the night before, interrupt the communication goals of the tutorial. couple this with someone walking in during the process, a screen and commands prompted in spanish, and the redirection to use keyboard shortcuts when an introductory tutorial should focus on the universal and cognitively associable toolbox icons (what if the viewer is not using the same operating system?), and what should have been a single viewing is now a bunch of stop, rewind, take note, filter out, and decipher wtf is being said.

Thanks for your time and for the tutorial!! I grokked about 75% of it. I would of enjoyed it better if the gimp UI was in english. Also, the verbal instructions at times didn't match the pace of the keyboard/mouse usage so it took some selective listening/perceiving to follow the instructions (Esp. dealing with layers and alignment tool). The interruption was funny, it pulled me out of concentration but i recooperated pretty swiftly.

Good presentation so far.

really helpful for beginners, appreciate your time and effort. continuing with next video this afternoon

Very cool to see a GIMP beginners gasto. We need more of these building blocks to put other tutorials in context and help produce learning paths for newbies. You cover a fair amount in a short space of time - might be a little quick for some but it will reward multiple views. And basic GIMP is one of the most useful linux skills I can think of. Like where you're going with this. Congrats.

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 gasto
