As nothing catastrophic has happened this week I’ll continue trying to make simple graphics with GIMP. You see one of them on the left.
This is done with the selection tools, working with paths and gradient fills.
One tip: Always use layers. If in doubt, add a new layer and work on that. It gives you some of the flexibilty of a vector based program, you can move, rotate and scale parts of the image without much effort.
This hat is here with a purpose. I had to shell out more money for this project as planned. And a lot of you have offered assistance. So here I am putting the hat on the street.
My account at PayPal is under the ID “firstname.lastname@example.org”. I tried to make a button here, but the thing always bombs out with some decryption errors. Perhaps WordPress messing with the code?
Does somebody know a different micro payment system? Perhaps a better one? A GeekBank would be a nice thing….
If you want to give me some money via the European bank system, ask me for the IBAN/BIC number per mail. I don’t want to put them up here. And as I said in the video, I like stuff from ThinkGeek.com and Amazon.DE.
More about lowering the running costs by sharing the server will follw in time.
