Dialogs and docking. [ID:956] (11/11)

in series: GIMP tutorial by example.

video tutorial by gasto, added 12/08

Series ID: 282 Video ID: 956

We study the different types of windows available in GIMP. We start by understanding which dialogs are dockable, and which aren't. We also recognize the different parts of the windows, and some of their generic menus. The docking drag handle is the dialog label used to drag and drop it into another window, more specifically, into it's docking bar.

We explore the image selection focus, by toggling it to automatic or manual.

The tab button on my Toolbox window disappeared and I can't get the tool options to show below th toolbox when you select a tool any more. I was hoping you would explain how to get the tool options back on the Toolbox.

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
