I had not enough time this week to make a proper show about the results of my challenge. (Next week I’ll have no school! ) Instead I make the blog image for the next show in this one. You’ll see a bit about the transform tools (rotate, scale, sheer and perspective) which have picked up a transparency slider somewhere since the show I made about them. Very nice to have! I was pointed to that by Jan Kardel’s video.
If you want to make an incredible amount of money it is a good idea to learn GIMP. Sergey Brin did that, created the logo of his startup and got rich. I downloaded the xcf and peeked under the hood. Just standard stuff – as you have seen by Philippe.
